A stocking aid may assist you if you have difficulty bending forward to put stockings on. There are flexible and rigid styles available, and some are floor standing (Dilks and Green, 2005).
A flexible stocking aid is cone shaped and is made of plastic or fabric, usually with two holes at the top where tapes or ropes are attached. Rigid stocking aids are made from a plastic semi-circular tube with a long handle or two tapes or ribbons attached. Floor standing stocking aids usually consist of an plastic coated frame, some have handles (Dilks and Green, 2005), DLF (2008).
Many sock aids may also be used to put stockings on, some are listed in this section.
