Rheumatoid arthritis

The Valiryo body dryer is the key to improve the lives of people with mobility problems. In previous articles in this blog we have talked about the benefits of the periodic use of our body dryer. Valiryo avoids the physical effort involved in towel drying, allowing people suffering from muscular or joint diseases to shower with a certain degree of independence. One of the most common diseases affecting mobility is rheumatoid arthritis. According to the WHO, this type of arthritis affects 30% of the world's population. Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disorder that affects the body's joints. It usually occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks the body's tissues (skin, eyes, lungs, heart, blood vessels, etc.). This type of arthritis affects the joints causing swelling that can lead to bone erosion and deformation of certain joints. This inflammation can also damage other parts of the body. Rheumatoid arthritis is characterised by bothersome symptoms. Some of these symptoms are:

  • Tender, hot and swollen joints
  • Joint stiffness that is usually worse in the morning and after inactivity.
  • Tiredness, fever and loss of appetite.

In the first phase, the disease affects the small joints in a more superficial way. However, as the disease progresses, the symptoms spread to other parts of the body. There are a number of risk factors that can make a person prone to the condition:

  1. Gender: Women suffer more from this pathology.
  2. Age: It tends to appear more frequently from middle age onwards.
  3. Family history.
  4. Smoking: Smoking increases the risk of suffering from it.
  5. Overweight: Being over the recommended weight increases your chances of developing rheumatoid arthritis.

By looking at the effects rheumatoid arthritis has on your body, we can understand the problems and discomfort you go through. One of the areas where you may encounter the most problems when the disease has started to cause mobility problems is the bathroom. More specifically, the shower. Drying off after a bath requires many movements to rub the towel against the skin. This is a challenge for people with little mobility and who suffer from disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis. For this reason, at Valiryo we wanted to offer a solution for all these people who have difficulties when showering, so that they can have a certain degree of independence when carrying out this task. In addition, it reduces the risk of falling in the bathroom, one of the main causes of accidents in the home. Also, thanks to its 27 air diffusers and temperature regulator, it manages to offer a relaxing experience after a shower that can help to alleviate the pain caused by arthritis. In fact, one of the natural remedies recommended for rheumatoid arthritis is heat therapy. Heat therapy treatment promotes long-term joint health. The heat helps to relieve accumulated stress on the joints. If you are a person who suffers from this disease or other diseases that affect your mobility we encourage you to try the Valiryo body dryer. We are convinced that this product will help you to improve your quality of life.
