Does the Vive sock assist aid work with compression socks?
Yes! The sock assist can be used with any type of sock or hosiery, including compression socks.
How wide is the sock assist opening for your foot?
The Vive sock assist opening measures 4” wide.
Can I use the sock assist with my large, wide feet?
Yes! The sock assist is flexible to accommodate a wide range of foot and sock sizes.
Does the sock assist have something to help put the heel of the sock on?
It is best to have as much of the sock on the device before starting. Pulling up the sock and sock assist in one smooth motion, while pointing the toes downward, should allow the sock assist and sock to slide around the heel and up the calf to the desired position.

Would I be able to use the sock assist with one hand?
Yes, it is possible to pull both cords with one hand, taking care to ensure cords are pulled equally.
Are there instructions on how to use it?
Yes! First, pull the sock over the sock assist device as far as the sock will go. Place the sock assist device on the floor, keeping the handles in your hands. Then insert your foot through the opening and smoothly pull the handles until your sock is completely over your foot.
Can it be used with nylons without ripping them?
Yes! The Vive sock assist has a smooth, rounded edge to prevent snags and runs in hosiery.
Does this stretch out the top of your socks?

The sock assist cord length is 33” and can be easily adjusted with the integrated button slider.

Yes! The Vive shoe horn is 23” to make it easier to put on your shoes while standing up or sitting down with little to no movement.
What is the Vive shoe horn made of?
