Coat donning aid

Project  / Project number: Yeo/5/1/09  /  Status:


The challenge

The client needed someone to help him put his jacket as he had difficulty putting his arms into the sleeves


The solution

The solution was to provide a length of cord with strong spring clips at each end and with a bracket attached at its mid point to fit over the top of a door. The length of the cord is such that when the clips were attached to shoulders of the jacket the client could put his arms into the top of the sleeves and then bend his knees to pull the jacket fully on.

The benefit

He can put his jacket on unaided.
