If you find it difficult putting on your socks, or stockings, then you're not alone. We have the ideal mobility aid solution that can make this daily task much easier – the Soxon Sock Aid. This clever dressing aid helps you to put your socks, or stockings on, quickly, safely and with the minimum amount of fuss.
Being able to get dressed every day is something we can take for granted, but for some people, it can take a lot of effort and time. The Soxon Sock Aid can help, as well as remove the fear of bending, or falling over.
The Soxon Sock Aid is made from soft, gentle bamboo material and is absorbent, so it helps to remove the moisture from our feet, making it much easier to slide the Soxon Sock Aid around our feet. This special material also has anti-bacteria properties that help to keep our feet healthy. The skin around our ankles is very delicate, so the soft fabric will feel gentle, as you pull the Soxon Sock Aid up around our ankles and legs.
The Soxon Sock Aid has been specially designed to gently contour around your foot. The gentle curves in this fabric help support all of your arches, while providing a good fit for any shape, or size.
This mobility aid includes useful long tapes. These will stop you from bending down and, being so long, it means that you can hold them either in your wrist, on your wrist, or on your arms. The Soxon Sock Aid can also be used with just one hand.
The Soxon is really simple to use. Just roll your sock, or stocking, onto the aid and pull it to the top of the sock aid, then place the aid on the floor. Now wiggle your toes all the way to the end of your sock, then gently keep pulling on the mobility aids’ loops until your sock, or stocking is on!
This mobility aid is Ideal for those with fragile skin, such as diabetics and for those with sensitive feet. And, just like socks, you can pop the Soxon Sock Aid into the wash, so it can be kept clean and hygienic.
Please note, the Soxon is not suitable for use with compression stockings.
I've had my Soxon for 6 weeks now and my skill with it has improved. I have used it every day for socks but more recently I have been able to put on wooly tights. Each time, I'm always impressed by how well it fits the heel but I was also surprised to find it coped easily with my tights. Both legs pulled up really easily, first time with no wrinkles or baggy bits The tapes that are used to pull up the device are still strongly fixed onto the Soxon and don't show any signs of wear, despite being pulled very hard, every day. If you buy one of these, choose to wear tights and socks that are not so tight fitting and I expect it will work well for you too
I chose this sock applicator because it was British made. At first, I found the Soxon almost impossible to use and it has taken me a couple of weeks to master it, although I do wonder if some people may not have sufficient strength or perseverance to find it useful. Cold feet kept me going :)) I have discovered that Soxon is easiest with my loose fitting synthetic bed socks, and extra difficult with my thick woollen gardening socks. The more easy stretch the sock has, the easier Soxon will work. It always surprises me how well it fits my sock to my heel, but equally it is always a big surprise how much strength I need to pull up the device using Soxon's long tapes. It concerns me how much strain the pull up tapes are taking, and although they are still firmly attached today, I wonder if this may prove my Soxon's demise?
