Leg Loop Leg Lift - $11.95

The Leg Loop Leg Lift allows a person to safely and effectively reposition the leg and foot onto a footrest, a bed, into a car, etc. by providing a more secure grip than merely tugging on a piece of clothing.The Leg Loop™ consists of two loops - a hand loop and a foot loop, one at each end of a rigid middle section. The Leg Loop Leg Lift helps people with limited lower extremity strength lift the leg and foot. It is designed to help people who have medical conditions in which they either partially or completely lose the ability to independently move their leg. Paraplegia, hemiplegia, paraparesis, hip surgery, and knee surgery are fairly common examples.The foot loop stays open until the strap is pulled and then conforms to the shape of the foot for a secure and comfortable grip. Rigid middle section allows for easy maneuverability. Once pulled, the loop closes and conforms to the shape of the foot for a secure and comfortable fit. This, combined with the rigid middle section" he asserts "makes it easier to place on the foot than other leg lifts and reduces the risk of the foot falling out and becoming injured. Leg Loop Leg Lift Specifications: Made of 1 inch (2.54 cm) wide, high strength, nylon webbing. 36 inches (91.4 cm) in length.

Assistive Devices can empower Stroke Patients and improve quality of life.

If you are a Stroke Patient, loved one, or a caregiver for a person living with Stroke related disease there is hope and help available. Assistive devices and stroke products are changing old attitudes that assume Stroke disease equates to a complete loss of independence. Nearly everyone has heard the term “Stroke”. Usually it’s mentioned in conjunction with a long list of activities the stroke victim is no longer able to perform. Traditionally there has been a sense of hopelessness conveyed toward and about persons living with Stroke Disease.

The National Institute of Health defines a Stroke as a sudden event occurring most often as a result of Cerebrovascular disease. Simply stated a stroke can be called a “brain attack” that occurs when blood flow to a part of the brain stops. If blood flow is cut off for longer than a few seconds, the brain cannot get blood and oxygen.

The length and breadth of the recovery process after a Stroke occurs is determined by how many Brain cells died. Lasting damage can affect any or all motor and cognitive skills. Due to technological advances there are stroke products available to assist the Stroke survivor with an increased quality of life. Much is dependent upon their outlook, attitude and access to Assistive Devices. Stroke aids such as a 26 inch EZ Reacher provides the Stroke Survivor with a device making it easier to reach, grasp and hold items independently. Other innovations include a Leg Loop Leg Lift designed to assist the Stroke survivor in lifting their foot and leg without depending on a caregiver.

Caregivers can encourage and promote more independence to the person with Stroke disease with the effective use of assistive and adaptive stroke aids. This serves to help the emotional outlook of both the caregiver and the patient. It also speeds the healing process and increases confidence by stressing “Ability” instead of “Disability” to a person living with Stroke disease.
