What should I expect?

Right now, the arthritis virtual assistant can’t give you a diagnosis or handle complex questions, but it can get you to high-quality information and advice quickly, any time of day, just by having a chat. You can ask questions about:

  • different types of arthritis
  • symptoms
  • exercise
  • pain management
  • treatment, including medication
  • prognosis.

Why should I use it?

The arthritis virtual assistant is powered by artificial intelligence, which means it learns over time and improves as more people use it.

It’s got a lot to learn about arthritis!
