We often recommend products that are well-designed for people with physical limitations caused by arthritis. Some products are just everyday items, while others make great gift ideas for someone with arthritis. Ergonomic, lightweight, easy-to-open items are obviously best.

But, have you come across products that make you miserable? I mean, just using the product makes yours hands hurt or your elbow snap. It may actually be a product that, for someone without limitations, is ingenious. But for someone with sore joints and weak muscles, it can only be classified as arthritis-unfriendly. Tell us which products you think are arthritis-unfriendly. Allow me to start. I vote for squeezable jelly!
