Subject: Is anyone here under 40 who has arthritis?

If you are under 40 years old and have arthritis please let me know. I am doing a project about designing an arthritis aid for people who are younger and would like you to have a look at some of my designs to tell me what you think.

Just leave a message on here to let me know or send me an email to tddesign@live.co.uk and I will send you some stuff!

Many Thanks

hi Tom, may I ask y the younger generation? isnt the condition same for all ages? altho we grow and look older, it seems the brains of people stop at approx 24ish.... in other words, I dont feel any older than 24.....does it really make a difference in terms of your deesigns¦? everyone wants something funky, trendy, cool, wotever the term...might understand if say u were designing summat for kids....Tom how did your other projects go?? tc Jill x

You are as young as you feel!

Hey thanks for the responses. Its no offence to older people but I am writing my dissertation now and I need to include interviews with younger people as well as older people who have the condition to see different points of view. I have visited two people in person but they were both elderly. I need a wide range of view points.

I will post a link to a questionnaire later this eve!

Btw - Jill - The presentation went really well, I just been busy with other projects until now.

Tom, there is a vast difference between under 40 and 'elderly.' There are quite a few of us in between.

Well said Bsk. Good luck with the project, All I can say Tom age is a state of mind! I Turned 40 last year which was when i was diagnosed, wonder if i can get OAP bus pass, nah.... I have a grandad who is 86 and bless him he would not class himself as elderly, in fact he has a younger mind set than some members of the family in their 20s!
