  1. Michelle Mackereth

    Very useful gadgets post hip surgery esp grabber stick

  2. Janet V Scarf

    The grabber and shoe horn are fine. The long handled sponge is OK but not easy to use and rinse. The sock puller is awful. It is very difficult to use as it is very stiff plastic. It is almost impossible to place correctly on my foot and often does not actually pull the sock on.

    Brilliant at picking up

    Helps me get my socks on easily, but yellow is not my favourite colour!
