The Dorking stocking aid is a simple inexpensive device to assist with putting on a sock or stocking.
It is ideal for people who, for various reasons, are not able to reach their feet to put their socks on in the usual manner.
It consists of a strong, shaped, flexible plastic gutter with long cotton tapes attached to the top. The stocking aid has rounded edges to help prevent snagging on hosiery. The long ties enable it to be used from either a seated or a standing position.
The stocking or sock is fed onto the plastic and held in place with the side notches. The foot is put in the open end of the stocking and then you slowly move the cords side to side to get the sock over your heel and up your leg.
It is made from a flexible plastic and is lightweight and portable.
