The web is constantly changing, making it impossible to keep up. And when arthritis pain hits, it can be tricky to navigate even the most basic websites. That’s why Voltaren is here to help. We want to make sure arthritis patients not only keep up to speed with new technology, but actually get ahead of the game.
We developed the first arthritis-friendly, mobile-first website experience. What does that mean? Basically, we know it can be difficult for joint pain sufferers to use their hands and fingers on mobile phones and other tech devices. We tested the following website features with 30 real arthritis patients to optimize and validate these features so we can make your experience as simple as possible. The Arthritis Foundation recognizes VoltarenGel.com as the first arthritis-friendly website.
Looking for something on the site? All you have to do is say so! Give your hands a rest using voice activation. This feature allows you to talk into your compatible smartphone’s speaker to search for specific topics or pages—without using your hands.* To activate voice search on mobile, tap the magnifying glass icon in the top right corner of your screen. This will activate the search bar, and both a microphone and magnifying glass icon will appear. Tap the microphone and follow the tooltips provided. On desktop, simply click the microphone already present in the search bar and follow the tooltips on the screen.
We also offer a voice chat feature that can answer questions about arthritis and Voltaren in real time. Our chat can be navigated by using the voice search feature or by simply tapping it on the screen and typing to chat.*
All around our site, there are buttons and links that are bigger than you might normally see. The larger size is easy on the eyes and makes it simpler to find and tap these buttons and links.
We know having to read too much text can be boring. We also know excessive scrolling can strain your hands and fingers (and your eyes!). To make our website easier and more fun to navigate, we have some short, easy-to-watch videos here and here, which share tips for managing your arthritis, testimonials from real Voltaren users and a video on how Voltaren works.
Did you know you can navigate our website hands-free? By enabling head-gesture navigation on a compatible smartphone, you can scroll web pages just by tilting your head. Learn more about activating these features.
Don’t let complicated technology slow you down. Get started trying out our new features, and remember you can always chat us for help!
