People have some strange phobias (check out the ever growing RGS list of Weird Phobias) so I could see this strange aperture to be helpful who are afraid of their own feet.
Easy pull on sock aid supports compression hosier, medical stockings, socks and panty hose so it’s easy to slide your foot in and pull on with handles without having to bend down or struggle. Just stretch the sock over the support, slowly slide your foot in and pull handles. Great for the elderly and people with physical disabilities.
