The 3 in 1 Buddy hip, back and knee kit is a patented product that allows individuals to dress themselves in a safe and simple way. From a medical standpoint, our signature sock aid is engineered to facilitate a neutral plane, almost eliminating any internal and external rotation of the ankle and hip.
The sock aid slides on either side of the reacher, thus allowing perfect guidance from the lower extremity.
The engineered sock aid is winged at the top with a small flared lip upon the end, therefore allowing the needed smooth glide upon the foot with a safe result of the sock coming over the heel to the ankle almost every time. This is important, especially when dealing with status post hip replacements, where bending past 90 degrees at the hip, have abnormal rotation of the foot and hip can result in damage from the surgical procedure. Remember, our sock aid is guided by the lower extremity, thus allowing a non-resistive slide of the sock aid upon the foot and allowing non-weight bearing precautions to be maintained. The shoe horn is attached to the reacher top, allowing an easy slide in and out.
The shoe horn locks in place and pulls back with an easy to use handle. When dressing out shoes, this shoe horn is so convenient and safe to use… no more dropping that shoe horn on the floor.
Then we have the high quality reacher used to help dress your lower extremity and pick up objects off the floor. It’s nice to know with the 3 in 1 Buddy, you have a Therapist designed product with the appropriate sock aid, shoe horn and reacher for a functional performance.
