Arthritis Makes Normal Activities More Difficult
Pain Limits Our Abilities
Our Live Yes! INSIGHTS study has shown that arthritis pain causes moderate to severe impairment of physical functioning, including daily living activities, such as doing chores, walking or going up and down stairs. We developed Vim to help people with chronic pain lead more productive lives.

The study also has shown that arthritis pain triggers additional repercussions that affect the well-being of patients, including sleep deprivation and chronic fatigue. Using Vim can help you manage that pain and improve your overall wellbeing.
