Atlanta, GA – (September 17, 2015) – Solaris Paper, Inc. (SPI) has partnered with the Arthritis Foundation in support of World Arthritis Day on October 12, 2015.
According to the Arthritis Foundation, over 50 million adults have doctor-diagnosed arthritis—and that number is expected to grow to 67 million by 2030.
Arthritis also dramatically impacts the workforce. People with osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis miss a combined 172 million workdays per year. Additionally, arthritis and related conditions account for more than $156 billion annually in lost wages and medical expenses.
In 2013, SPI was awarded the Arthritis Foundation's Ease-of-Use Commendation for its innovative Nvi® electronic bath tissue dispenser. The Ease-of-Use Commendation recognizes the product for features that make it easy to use by people with arthritis and limited mobility.
