My suggestion is if you have an arthritis doctor check with them. A lot of doctors get catalogs that have easy to use items in it for people with arthritis. If your doctor doesn't have any, check with a physical therapist, they also get lots of catalogs and can even order it for you and if you have insurance it may cover any items they order.
There are portable refrigeration devices that would meet your needs, and that could make the trip with you, due to their small size and portability.
The one that I think would best meet your travelling refrigeration needs is the Engel 15 Portable Freezer. It provides for both freezing and refrigeration options and runs on a 12-volt battery or 110 household current. It is used by EMS/Ambulance personnel and Public Health Nurses to maintain proper temperatures for medications and cold packs, as well as for personal medications when camping, boating or travelling.
