Dressing Aids

Getting dressed without pain or risk of injury becomes a significant ability when it's repeated every day. Dressing aids perform some of the tasks an assistant would, such as holding a sock open or pulling a zipper up.

Dressing aids include:

  • Sock, stocking, and pantyhose aids
  • Trouser pulls and pant clips
  • Dressing sticks, reachers, and clasps
  • Zipper pulls and buttonhooks
