I`m often get this question as RA patient. Why is this so? Reumatoid artrit is a progressive disease. The smallest walk can be very painful. Joints that are severely damaged by rheumatic should not be permanently loaded.
In addition, rheumatics folks like to lose their walk balance. Rheumatics like me, who can still walk minimal, therefore I my use my wheelchair in everyday life.
Watch the wonderful movie from #ungareumatiker och Minell Brückner
By the way: Our wheelchairs are specially optimized for Reumatiker
