With this simple dressing aid, you’ll be able to slip on socks quickly, effortlessly, and more importantly, without pain or causing strain to the back. A sock aid is a flexible or rigid mechanism that is attached to either one continuous loop or two long handles.
Traditionally, the sock slips over the flexible part of the sock aid so the top of the sock is held open. Once the sock is slipped onto the assistive device, drop it to the floor while you hold onto the handles. Your foot is then slipped into the sock opening. With the handles, you pull back and upward so your foot slips into the sock and out of the sock aid.
