Arthritis is a term used to describe inflammation of one or more joints in the body. There are over 100 different types of arthritis, but the two most common forms are osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disease when the cartilage that cushions the joints wears down over time. Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder in which the body's immune system mistakenly attacks the joint tissue, causing inflammation and pain. Symptoms of arthritis include joint pain, stiffness, swelling, and decreased range of motion. Treatment options include medication, physical therapy, and in some cases, surgery. It is important to consult with a doctor if you have symptoms of arthritis to determine the best course of treatment for you. At Patient Handling, we offer a range of products that can assist with a number of these conditions to enable independent living and the best quality care.


Arthritis is a common condition affecting nearly 4 million Australians, with 1 in 5 having some form of musculoskeletal condition. A large number of the population believe that Arthritis is a condition associated with ageing. However, this is not the case with over 2.4 million working-age people with some medical musculoskeletal condition.

Currently, there is no cure for Arthritis, but research suggests that early intervention can significantly reduce the symptoms and delay the onset of the disease. If diagnosed with Arthritis, there are several ways in which you can manage the disease and ensure that symptoms are not progressive.
