Assistant / Shoehorn

Assistant
Assistant

It is observed that to succeed in picking up shoes and putting them on or taking them off one must bend down which is often difficult for many elderly and disabled. This new design redefines the function of traditional shoehorn. It has two striking new features, a set of twin hooks and an anti-slip rubber handle. The shoehorn with these two new features will not only assist in putting on and taking off shoes, it will also make this process easier and safer. The twin hooks make picking up shoes or placing shoes into the cabinet much easier. They also provide extra stability and balance when one leans on the shoehorn for temporary support.
