The only problem we had was that once he put the sock on, my husband had to "step over" it to get out of it because of the handle. So, we cut through the handle, and presto, problem was solved.
I assume the handle is for someone who is limited to using one hand ... but it only got in our way.
FYI - after 5 shots in his knee and 4 weeks of physical therapy, we have now graduated to working on an elliptical at our rec center ... maybe one day he won't need the aids, but for now we are grateful!
Edited - a year later. Sadly we still need this little tool, but are glad we found it. When this one wore out (handles fraying, sponge that holds the sock wearing off) this is the model we replaced it with. It lasted well over a year, and we do recommend it.
A real back saver.
Item received promptly from Amazon.
for further flexibility. A fault with it, was it was terry cloth covered, so it wore, and the fabric straps broke from wear. I ordered
a replacement. This (according to the picture attached) was a duplicate of the previous device. Upon arrival, I noticed it was different. The device itself was harder plastic, no fingers, and less flexibility. There were two garter devices to hold I'm guessing stockings, and instead of two independent straps, there was one.
The strap was attached by rivets, and appeared less likely to tear, but the rivets poke through to the inside of the plastic, which could cause some abrasion. In short, the previous device didn't wear well and broke, this new device is more substantial, but more difficult to use, and can cause pain. But, it's what I have, and there are no refunds/exchanges. It works.
