Device to assist putting on velcro shoes
A lady with severe arthritis and with practically no movement in her hip joints, had great difficulty placing on her shoes and fastening the velcro.
An available long-handled tool (a ‘helping hand’) was modified by cuttting and bracketing at the lower end to provided an angled, rather than a straight grasping action.
The client can now put on, or take off, her shoes without difficulty.
