Dressing Aids, Shoe

Definition : Dressing aids designed to assist patients in putting on their shoes by reducing the need for bending/reaching. These devices usually consist of a long handle made of plastic, wood or metal with a handle at one end and a curved plastic piece (i.e., shoehorn) at the other end; some may have springs connecting the stick to the shoehorn. These devices help to pull the shoe to allow the foot to slip in more easily. They can be made in different shapes (e.g., round -shaped or tortoise-shell shaped shoehorns in order to fit the shape of the heel) and lengths (e.g., as short as 12 inches, and as long as 36 inches). Shoe dressing aids are mainly used to assist people who have limited mobility in the upper or lower extremities or who have difficulty in bending/reaching and/or whose manual dexterity/strength is limited.
