Ease-of-Use Commendation Program

Ease-of-UseThe Arthritis Foundation's Ease-of-Use Commendation is an innovative program that recognizes products proven to make life easier for people who have arthritis and other physical limitations. All products in the program are independently tested by experts at the Georgia Tech Research Institute and evaluated by people with arthritis. Ease-of-Use products stand out in the marketplace because they are tested and proven easy to use.

Cause Marketing and Retail Promotions

With 86% of Americans saying they would switch brands to one that supported a good cause, many companies understand the value of working with trusted and established organizations like the Arthritis Foundation.  Donating a percentage of sales or implementing retail-based promotions can demonstrate corporate citizenship, while providing consumers a way to help support the fight against a disease that affects 50 million Americans and their families.
