Adaptive Equipment

If you could benefit from the use of adaptive equipment, your doctor can recommend you meet with an occupational therapist. 

Adaptive equipment:

  • Reacher: for picking up dropped items from the floor and for reaching to don pants and shoes
  • Sock aid: allows donning socks without excessive bending of the hip or knee
  • Grab bars: to assist in getting in/out of bath and on/off toilet
  • Bath/Shower chair: for safety and ease in bathing.  
A reacher: a straight rod with a grabbing device on one end, and a handle you squeeze to operate at the other end.  A sock aid: a curved piece of plastic with a rope tied to each side.
