Title:
AN AID FOR DONNING A SOCK
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2015/142188
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
As shown in figure (1), an aid for donning a sock has a base (1), a handle (2) joined to and extending upwards from the base, a pair of spreaders (7), and moving means adapted to move the spreaders (7) up and down when desired. The arrangement is such that a human is able to operate the moving means to cause the spreaders (7) to move upwards so as to be accessible from a standing position. From there the user can load a sock to one of the spreaders so that it holds the sock open. The user then operates the moving means to cause the spreader and sock to move downwards to at or adjacent to ground level. Gripping the handle (2, 5) to receive significant stability while standing on one foot, the user is then able to maneuver at least part of their other foot into the sock.
