The Sock and Stocking Aid helps individuals with a reduced range of motion dress more independently. The flexible contoured plastic shell is attached to built-up foam handles, helping individuals slide socks or stockings with greater ease and comfort. The dressing aid assists those who have difficulty bending down or are recovering from a back, knee, or hip replacement surgery.
The soft and non-slip foam handles are designed to increase grip, assisting individuals with weak hand strength pull on a sock or stocking. For use, simply place the sock or stocking over the plastic trough, insert the foot, and pull the cord’s foam handles straight back to bring the sock over the heel and up the leg. The ropes can be adjusted to your desired length by tying new knots as needed.
For one-handed use, use the Continuous Loop Cord with single foam handle. The No-Slip Sock Aid features a pad that has the same one-way material as found on a lint brush, designed to prevent socks from slipping off the plastic trough. The sock and stocking aid is available in various sizes and rope lengths.
