making life easier

A sock aid definitely makes life easier, especially for those with range-of-motion or mobility issues — and is among the must-have items for those who wish to make living alone easier.

The Flexible Sock Aid shown on the upper left has a nylon interior that reduces friction, while the terrycloth outside holds the sock in place. The flexible three-finger design bends with the contours of the foot and heel. The  29-inch long looped handles reduce the need to bend and are easy to manipulate. The Flexible Sock Aid is hand washable.

The Hard Plastic Sock Aid shown on the lower left uses molded hard plastic design that most physical therapists recommend. Each sock aid helps the user put on socks and stockings without bending. To use the Hard Plastic Sock Aid, the sock or stocking is placed over plastic core. Garter clips attach to the sock or stocking and holds it in place while the user slips his or her foot into the sock or stocking. The 48-inch strap  reduces the need to bend and are easy to manipulate. The Hard Plastic Sock Aid comes with instructions.
