Limited reach, bending precautions, or limited dexterity can make it hard to dress and put on shoes. AliMed carries a wide variety of tools to increase dressing independence. These products include Sock and Stocking Aids, Shoehorns, Dressing Sticks, and Specialized Shoelaces.
Sock and Stocking Aids help people with limited reach put on socks or stockings. We offer these aids for one- or two-handed use and for several individual needs.
Shoehorns extend reach when bending is difficult or prohibited. Choose metal with vinyl handles for strength and durability, or plastic for fragile skin. Available with a straight end, or with a hook end to assist in grasping shoes.
Dressing Sticks are made for people whose ability to bend is limited. Multiple-hook models such as the Multi-Use™ Dressing Stick accommodate the various pushing/pulling requirements for dressing. Combination sticks like the Dress EZ™ combine shoehorn and dressing stick functions.
