Hip Kits & Dressing Sticks for Elderly

When it comes to recovering from a hip replacement, a little help goes a long way. A Hip Kit provides simple but necessary daily activity aids to help in recovery following hip replacement surgery. Hip replacement kits bundle together items at a saving instead of buying each item individually. Every component, like the post-surgery dressing stick, features an expanded handle to eliminate painful motions when getting dressed, bathing, or picking up objects making it ideal for individuals with arthritis or limited ability as well. Not only does this alleviate pain during the recovery process, but it also fosters independence with everyday tasks.

Hip Kits do vary in contents and the number of pieces included. There are hip kits with dressing sticks, hip kits with leg lifter, and hip kits with sock aids to meet a variety of needs.

Popular Hip Replacement Kit Items

Reacher Grabber

The popular reacher is a grabbing tool that is a mainstay in every hip kit for its convenient reaching and grabbing assistance from either a standing or seated position. When getting dressed is difficult due to surgery or arthritis, this handy grabbing tool retreives clothing and pulls up socks. Seniors also find it useful to reach objects in inaccessible and narrow spaces without strain or discomfort.

Example:

  • HealthSmart Aid Kit with Metal Reacher, MDSD1411, is a six-piece kit featuring a sturdy metal reacher that extends up to 24 inches. The handle is easy to squeeze to close the grabber to retrieve clothing and more.

Sock Aid

The sock aid dons the sock without the user ever bending over. The sock is expanded over the aid and its side straps allowing the foot to be lowered without painful bending. As the straps are gently pulled up, the sock lifts and the aid lifts out of the sock. The reacher is included in the kit to make any necessary adjustments. Donning and doffing of shoes is made easy utilizing elastic laces and shoehorn. The elastic shoelaces replace regular laces so the shoe expands as the shoehorn helps slip on the shoe.

Dressing Stick

A benefit of a dressing stick is the varied hook options located on both its ends to assist with clothing application and removal. The hook pulls up a pant loop so the user can dress independently without bending. Removal is simple using the dressing stick to push down the pant leg and around the ankle. To put on a sweater or jacket, the dressing stick is threaded through a sleeve to pull around the shoulder. This is essential for independent living when the user has limited mobility or dexterity. The smaller hook pulls zippers up with ease. Dressing sticks for elderly patients or hip replacement recovery are available for purchase as a kit or individually like the Drive Dressing Stick.

Example:

  • Fabrication Enterprises Hipster Kit is a four-piece kit. The dressing stick features two hooks — the small bottom hook is perfect for zippers and the larger hooks at the top add versatility of use for donning and doffing.

Long-Handled Bath Sponge

Limited mobility not only makes getting dressed difficult, but it also makes showering and bathing challenging. The long-handled bath sponge creates reach assistance to prevent bending when washing the lower body or to reach the back.
