Halacha - Mikveh
Submitted by anonymous  Answered by Rav Peretz Moncharsh
Question:

1) If a women can not go to the Mikveh because of Arthritis in both knees excess weight that can permanently damage the knees going down the the steps.How do we solve this problem?

2) If a women decides not to go to the Mikveh, what is the husband's solution?

Answer:

1) Try to design a way the mikva lady or two could lower her into the mikva, something on the idea of a swing might work. Once she is fully in the mikva, the buoyancy of the water should allow her to stand unassisted.

2) If a woman permanently can not immerse on the mikva it is potentially problematic to remain married, a Rav who knows the details of your situation personally should be consulted.
