Marita Loffredo founded a business that sells mittens to keep arthritic hands warm.
Phalang-Ease Mittens (pronounced like the word "phalanges," meaning hand bones) are designed with flaps that make them easy to put on and comfortable. “When your hands are swollen or achy, you don’t want something binding that’s hard to get off,” she says. You lay your hand in the mitten, and you don’t have to pull anything or fit your fingers in place.
