Arthritis detection at your fingertips
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory disease that without proper control destroys the joints, deteriorates the quality of life and shortens the life expectancy of patients.
It affects more than 17.6 million people worldwide and the number is increasing.
