Occupational Therapy Month: Sock Aid

Occupational Therapy Month: Sock Aid

“S” is for “sock aid”, also known as “sock donner”.

A sock aid is an adaptive device used to help individuals put on socks! The sock aid is beneficial for individuals with arthritis who have limited range of motion to bend down and put on socks. Additionally, it can be beneficial for individuals with poor motor planning who may experience difficulty knowing how to put on their socks.

How it works: you put the sock over top the end piece so that there is an opening for your foot. Slip your foot inside and pull the strings/straps. The sock stays on the foot and the end piece is ready again to put on the second sock!

Here is a picture of my friends practicing with the sock aid!
