|Official Title:||The Evaluation of a Dataglove to Measure Joint Stiffness in Patients With Arthritis|
Patients with Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Correlation between maximum velocity of movement and the patient reported severity of joint stiffness [ Time Frame: Maximum of 7 days ]A significant inverse correlation is expected to be found between the patient's assessment of the severity and/or duration of stiffness and the maximum velocity of movement at the main finger joints.
- Number of patients withdrawing from the study [ Time Frame: Over the period of testing of the dataglove - 7 day timeframe ]We are expecting that no more than 30% of patients will withdraw from the study due to discomfort fitting or using the dataglove.
