Hip kit

"Hippy, hippy shake"...


If you’ve just had a hip replacement operation, or find it hard to bend for any other reason, this is what you need. The invaluable grabber to reach for anything you’d usually manage by bending, the amazingly easy get-your-socks-on gadget, the longer than usual shoe horn, and a suction grab bar to help in the bath or shower. You’ll be better in no time, but you may well want these for longer anyway…

This kit includes the items recommended by NHS hospitals for post hip replacement recovery.



  • Grabber – Folding Classic Pro reacher: a high quality reacher to help pick up what you need without bending 
  • Shoe horn: long enough to save bending, strong yellow plastic
  • Foxy sock aid: a clever device for putting your socks on without having to bend
  • Leg lifter: does just that- very helpful for getting in or out of a car
  • Suction grab bar –  perfect for times when fitting a permanent grab rail in the bathroom isn’t practical

I am thrilled to receive the very useful Hip Kit before my operation on Friday. Thank you so much, I will start practising with them. Super bag to hold them in too!
