Kinsman Terry Covered Sock Aid

“After hip replacement, a sock aid is a necessity. The Terry Cloth Sock Aid is wonderful, and easy to use, and friendly to nylons. I’d like to offer a little tip: when your toes reach the stocking toe, press your toes to the floor and hold them there so when the rest of the stocking is pulled on, your toes will not be too tightly encased”. – CUSTOMER REVIEW

Easy On / Easy Off Sock Aid Kit
Plastic molded Sock-Aid holds the sock open and allows the foot to be pushed into the sock. Once the sock is placed on the plastic form; it is lowered to the floor with the Easy Off Sock Doffer. The foot is inserted into the sock opening and as you push your foot forward, the Sock-Aid tilts to allow for ease of entry. The Easy-Off Sock Doffer is used to push your sock off, and with the use of your feet, you can tilt it to put your sock within reach. It can be used to remove light compression garments, as well.

 Sock Aid with Foam Grip

“This is better than the one I was given at rehab after my hip replacement. It has a wider cradle more suitable for a mans foot. It also has a foam grip under the toe section whicn makes it easier to keep the socks on the aid and to get the sock on your foot. Well pleased with the purchase” – customer review.
