Aid for putting on surgical boot

The client has use of only one arm and could not hold his surgical boot secure to enable him to put it on.

A half box made of wood had a cut out to hold the boot. The Velcro closures on the boot were held out of the way by mating pieces of Velcro on the box. A loop handle prevents the box and boot slipping away as the foot is inserted. The client’s good hand can secure the Velcro straps on the boot.

The client can now put his boots on without help from a carer.
