This is just what I needed and wanted. Very easy to attach the stocking and assist in putting it on. Would buy again.

Am very pleased. I do wish they weren’t so wide as it takes a lot of effort to get the sock pulled on. I’m confident that if it were only 3” wide it would work much easier.

JUst have a little problem with the hard plastic. The one used at the hospital had a sock like covering and was more flexible. It works and is very helpful.

Suggested Improvements to the Sock Assist
The device is useful, but I have three suggestions: 1.- The thickness of the plastic part should be increased. I had it split in two pieces without an excessive pressure. 2.- One has a hard time placing the sock around the plastic piece. If you would add a non-slip piece on the two sides near the rope holes, that would make the procedure much easier. I actually did that with two strips of cloth and double sicky tape. You can use the same stuff you are using to hold the sock. 3.- The knots of the ropes used are too large. They are causing hurt on the inner side of the legs, when you try to place the sock on the top of the plastic piece. I am convinced that if you implement the above suggestions, the product will become really PERFECT.
We appreciate the feedback/ suggestions, I will definitely pass this along to our Products Team. Thank you for being a Vive Health Customer! ~Rebecca, Vive Health CS~
Does the Vive sock assist 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 opening for your foot?
The sock assist opening is 4” wide.
Can I use the sock assist with my large, wide feet?
Yes, it is flexible to accommodate a wide range of sizes.
Does it 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.
Will the sock assist work with ankle socks?
Yes, the sock assist works well with ankle socks.
Would I be able to use this 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?
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.
Will this work with a child size sock?
Because the sock assist is flexible it may be able to handle an older child’s sock, however, the sock assist is 4” wide and may be too large to handle small children’s socks.
Can it be used with nylons without ripping them?
Yes, the sock assist has a smooth, rounded edge to prevent snags and runs.
Does this stretch out the top of your socks?
The sock assist only stretches a sock during the brief amount time it takes to put them on leaving the elastic fully intact, however, leaving a sock on the device for long periods of time may deform your sock.
How long are the adjustable cords?
The cord length is 33”.
