When it comes to getting dressed, putting on socks or stockings can be one of the most challenging aspects for seniors and people living with a disability.
Not only does the movement require a significant bend at the waist, but it also requires lifting the leg and using the hands to manoeuvre the sock over the foot.
A sock aid, such as the Terry Cloth Sock Aid, is designed to make the process of putting on socks simpler and more comfortable.
This flexible, plastic sock aid has slits in the plastic core which allow it to bend around the heel.
The inside is lined with nylon to reduce friction.
The outside of the aid is lined with terry cloth to hold the sock firmly until it is on the foot. Two pulling tabs with loop handles permit one-handed use.
Hand wash only.
