  11. Anne Roberts

  12. Michael Kemp

    I have primary progressive MS – it has made it possible for me to lift my leg to get into bed easier, and to get in the car much more

  13. Amazon Customer

    Makes getting into bed a lot easier and managing a step although the handle could do with being an inch or two longer

  14. G Campbell – Amazon Customer

    A simple device that could be very useful depending on one’s circumstances. Well made and easily long enough to reach the foot to aid lifting of the legs. Because there is a stiff centre section there is no issue of having to throw the loop over the foot, instead it is quite easy to simply reach down and place the lower loop over the foot and pull on the top padded handle. A well made device.

  15. Stuart Henley – Amazon Customer

    Excellent product, study and well priced. Happy customer.

  16. Moira Duncan

    This is the perfect aid for helping me get into bed, in a car or in a chair

  17. Amazon Customer

    I really found this loop very useful after my full hip replacement. I used it to lift my leg to be able to get into my bed or on my sofa without having to ask my husband to do it for me.

  18. M P Wood – Amazon Customer

    I use mine to lift each leg into my car every day. It does show the dirt easily in yellow. Depending on use the foot holder stiffener eventually breaks up inside, but it’s still useable. I take mine to hospital appointments for X-rays etc. and everyone says it’s the most useful piece of equipment they’ve ever seen.

  19. ASK – Amazon Customer

    The leg lift strap is well thought out with a wide resin insert which provides firm yet flexible support for the large foot loop without any danger of being pierced by metal wire. The hand loop is well padded and is large enough to be gripped with both hands.

  20. Mr I Cumming – Trustpilot

    Prompt delivery of replacement.

  21. Amazon Customer

    I wish I had found this sooner. I was waiting for a hip replacement & could not lift my leg without support. This tool is a fabulous help. A must have if you need help moving & lifting your leg.

  22. Anthony.

    Getting in or out of cars is now achievable

  23. Lorna Gale – Amazon Customer

    I have arthritis in my leg and struggle to get in and out of bed, this product has been a godsend, very light to hold and is easy to store, l highly recommend that you try it!

  24. Anthony – Trustpilot

    Getting in or out of cars is now achievable

  25. Nigel McAlister – Amazon Customer

    I received my **3rd** Leg Lifter today!!
    I have found this quality item so convenient to have around the house. They are particularly useful if my rollator is just out of reach and I can ‘rein it in’ from where I am sitting. Also for looping around the door handle to open or close the room doors from my chair.
    I can also use the Leg lifter to drag items to me that have fallen on the floor or on adjoining furniture.
    Initially I tried lifting my ‘dead’ leg in the loop but the leg was too heavy — so for MS users like me it would be used on an individual basis. Very sturdy, well constructed and cheerful to look at.

  26. ACB – amazon Customer

    Wish I’d had this for my previous job knee and hip replacements but this was a godsend for my latest replacement so easy to use also wished I had taken it into hospital too as it would have saved me calling the nurses to help me back to bed. Well made great price. Invaluable piece of kit!

  27. Natasha – Amazon Customer

    Its shorter than I thought but as my mum is only 4ft7ins its perfect for her. Lightweight. Easy to use. Very helpful as mum has broken her kneecap. Delivered on time

  28. Les – Amazon Customer

    Excellent purchase! been a real boon after knee Op. so east to use , takes the effort out of lifting a heavy sore leg, with stitches in 👍

  29. Amazon Customer

    This item came in very handy after my recent complete hip replacement surgery. It was a huge asset upon my return home after surgery. It proved invaluable from the time I left hospital when I got in to the car, helping to swing my legs over in order to sit comfortably. It continued when I arrived home, helping me get in to bed efficiently without any pain or discomfort. I don’t know how I would have managed without it during the first 4 weeks of every day life, after being discharged from hospital.

  30. Mrs W. – Amazon Customer

    Two weeks after hip replacement I got into bed so much more easily and with no pain. Wish I had found this earlier highly recommend.

  33. Margaret Cummings – Amazon Customer

    Great for helping me lift my painful leg into bed after a hip operation. Also good for reaching out to loop round the door handle and pull it open.

  34. Amazon Customer

    Having been bedbound for several months I have lost flexibility. The Helping Hand has been invaluable. It is easy to use, I just hook one end round my foot and pull the other end to lift my leg onto the bed.

  35. Anne – Amazon Customer

    I purchased this while i was still in hospital after having a total knee replacement and i couldn’t lift my leg. It arrived the following day and was a life saver. It made getting in and out of bed so easy until i could manage to lift my leg myself.
    Great product and well worth the money.

  36. Mike Batchelor – Amazon Customer

    The Leg Lift enables me to improve and increase my overall capability to perform tasks like putting my socks and shoes on – getting in and out of bed.
