Finding a chair

If you have arthritis, it's important to find a suitable chair. If you find it difficult to get out of your chair, if it makes you slouch or if you feel uncomfortable after you've been sitting for a while, you may want to think about getting a new chair that's more suited to you.

There are thousands of easy chairs on the market today and many claim to be specially designed for people with arthritis. We won't specify which chairs are best, but we will provide guidelines on things to look for when choosing.
