What are good tools I can gift my mother who has RA?

My mum has just been diagnosed after nearly a year and it has damaged cartridges in her wrists. I’m just wondering if there are any secrets or anything I can buy to help with pain etc. She has the support socks and gloves. Would it be a good idea to get the electric knee pads that massage, etc

    Hi Trish. Sorry to hear about your mom’s diagnosis (forgive my use of the American vernacular). One of our contributors wrote this article on gift ideas for those with RA: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/living/gift-ideas-for-those/.

    Concerning more specifics, many of our community members mention compression gloves and socks. This article gave feedback from the community on their experience: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/living/using-compression-socks-pain-swelling-feedback-community/.

    Another area that might be of interest is tools and gadgets to make life easier. Our contributors have written several articles on such items. This link is for the search results on this topic in our archive: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/?s=gadgets. The top listings will be on topic.

    I hope this information is helpful and know that both of you are always welcome here. Best, Richard (RheumatoidArthritis.net Team)
