Just a few months ago I slipped on wet grass twisting my leg as I fell. I have recovered but, I have found that I cannot bend my ankle and knee to put on my socks as it was so painful. I saw this item advertised on Amazon and decided it may help. All I can say is, what a godsend! If you have any problems with putting your socks on then I can't recommend this product enough. So simple but so effective.
