I no longer believe in the human race.
This is the laziest shit ever
How lazy can humans get?
Have you never met white ppl?
I didn’t realise only white people lost mobility due to age, physical disability or degenerative illnesses.
Because the target market for this product are those people who are disabled or lack mobility. You are literally mocking people who cannot for whatever reason do something you take for granted and then packaging it up as a race issue.
anyways, yall who commented before this last person need to be more careful and remember that uh disabled people exist 🙂

I had to put my grandfather’s socks and shoes on for him for years and sometimes he would get really mad about needing my help.
His legs were paralyzed, so, in order to get his feet into his socks and shoes he would have to use both hands to pull his whole leg up to get his foot off the floor so I could slip the sock on over his foot and then I had to make sure it was on right (I’m autistic and I often put things on backwards, inside out, or sometimes in the case of shoes i put them on the wrong feet).
It was really difficult for him to do this because he was in a ton of pain.
I wish I’d known this existed back then cus he would’ve loved it. It would have helped with our morning struggle so much. He wouldn’t have needed help with his socks at all.
This thing is designed so the weight of your leg will put the sock on for you.
Being able to put your own socks on may seem like a small thing to some people but when you can’t take care of yourself without help; things like these can help you maintain at least a little bit of control over yourself. And it can help you feel a little more independant.
I’m not saying that ppl who need help putting on clothes (or with taking care of themselves in any capacity) are a burden either, (Hint: we aren’t a burden) but I definitely feel like a burden whenever I cannot do something that allistic, neurotypical, or abled people can do by themselves because of this kind of attitude.
Products like this can help with that.
Typically any product that you see in infomercials that looks like its designed for “lazy people” is actually designed for disabled people.
But they market to a wider audiance to make more money.
AND BEYOND THAT; why the fuck do yall care so much about how someone else chooses to put their socks on???
Get a fuckin hobby.
We got this for my mom after she lost her range of motion in an accident. She can’t reach her feet to put her socks on herself, and hates asking me or my brother to do it. It’s a little lightweight, so if you’re having trouble you might consider propping it against something, but otherwise it’s a solid product!
My mum can’t move, well… anything at all really thanks to MS. This would’ve been really handy while she was in the early stages of it though.
