Hey there! Welcome to Accessibility Minute, your weekly look at Assistive Technology, those clever tools and devices designed to help people who have difficulties with vision, mobility, hearing or other special needs!

For many individuals, putting on socks independently is very challenging if not impossible.  If you’re looking for a product to help make this daily task easier, check out the RMS Sock Aid!

The RMS Sock Aid allows users to put on socks or hosiery independently in “4 easy steps”.  The sock aid is an ideal tool for individuals who can’t bend over, have limited mobility, are recovering from back, hip, knee surgery, and more.

According to the product’s description: “The sock assist device is made of high quality molded plastic that is durable but flexible enough to work with all sizes of socks from small to extra large for both men and women. It works with all types of socks including athletic socks, dress socks, stockings, or casual socks…”

Other features include:

Features comfortable foam grip handles making them easier to grab and hold on to
Slip-resistant foam pad keeps socks from slipping off the Sock Aid
The ropes are adjustable to your ideal length by tying new knots as necessary
And much more
