Abstract

Rheumatoid arthritis and osteo-arthritis are the most two common types of rheumatic diseases, a condition that damages joints and affects their function. In this paper, we present a new solution to assist the arthritis and osteoarthritis treatment by the use of a new kind of tshirt based on the method of heating and vibration controlled via a mobile device. The system is tested on different patients with different levels of Rheumatism and the obtained results show that the treatment is robust against body pain.
