Truly the most independent dressing aid of its kind. The long handled footwear helper can be used to retrieve items from around the home. Whilst the integral shoehorn can help with all types of footwear. An ideal and much more versatile alternative to a long and heavy metal shoe horn or the smaller plastic lazy Shoe Helper device.
This combined shoehorn, shoe-helper and reacher/grabber makes bending down and wrestling your feet into footwear a thing of the past. Designed for easy use by those who struggle to bend or reach their feet. The Shoehelper claw tightly grips and holds the shoe into place.

Which size Helping Hand?
Sitting down to put your shoes on, or standing up in the porch, the standard size (26″/65cm) will easily do all your jobs.
If you are needing a little extra reach following hip or knee surgery and/or over 5’10, we would recommend the longer size (32″/82cm). Therefore avoiding any unnecessary stretching or balancing acts.

A trained professional should check your bare feet once a year. It’s a good chance to check anything you might have spotted with them yourself. But don’t wait a whole year to ask them. If you notice a problem – get it seen as soon as you can.
