Medgadgets don’t always have to involve holograms or nanoparticles. Here’s an update to the classic shoehorn, for patients who can’t easily bend over:
Tulsa-based Rocky Mountain Marketing has developed its Shoe & Boot Valet to enable users to perform this daily task without bending their neck, back, hips or knees. Made of a lightweight aluminum alloy and durable nylon, this home medical device can be used with almost any type of footwear – whether the user is standing, sitting or lying down. The Shoe & Boot Valet weighs only one pound and is especially helpful for those suffering from conditions that affect hand strength, since the Valet requires very little grip strength.
It sounds useful for low back pain sufferers, pregnant women, and people who wear really tight boots.
