Look for the Ease of Use Seal

Ease of Use products have been tested and approved as easy to use by the Independent Design Applied Research Institute (IDARI). Our certification seal, in both our new and previous designs, recognizes and certifies products and packaging that have been approved and are available for purchase in both online and in retail locations.

About the Ease of Use Program

Our Certification Process

Each product being considered for the Arthritis Foundation’s Ease of Use Certification is first independently tested by the Intuitive Design Applied Research Institute (IDARI). Products receiving a Pass are then eligible to license the Ease of Use Certification for their product.
