With arthritis, many tasks around the farm that were once simple may no longer be carried out because of pain and stiffness in a farmer’s joints. Getting help from others may be beneficial, but is not always an option for long-term solutions. There are many assistive devices that can be used and modifications that can be made to make jobs easier and less painful.
For more information on where to find and purchase these assistive devices, please consult The Toolbox resource from Purdue University’s Breaking New Ground Resource Center by clicking on the link. To order the toolbox by phone, please call 1-800-825-4264.
