If you spend a lot of time on the computer or playing games, you are probably going to want to check out all of these innovative arthritic aids. While nothing is set in stone yet, I am willing to bet that an entire generation that does nearly everything with its hands for hours on end is likely to see a spike in arthritis cases when it reaches old age.

Hopefully an arthritis epidemic doesn't inflict our tech-savvy and hands-on generation. If it does, be thankful that there are a slew of innovative arthritic aids designed to heal your hands and make life easier. When afflicted with arthritis, simple tasks such as pouring milk or moving a pot off the stove become dangerous games of chance. Fortunately, designers have been working to remedy these issues with new devices designed to take the pressure off of your hands and onto stronger sections of the body such as the forearms.

Treatments for arthritis are also becoming more and more advanced, with doctors possibly (don't hold me to this) a few years away from severely crippling or eliminating the disease altogether.
