Leg Loop Leg Lift From Maddak Increases Safety; Reduces Injuries and Bruising

Share Article

A common practice among people with limited or no use of their lower extremities is to grab onto the pants to reposition the leg. In many instances this can lead to dropping the leg and causing further injury to the leg and bruising. Maddak Inc.’s new Leg Loop™ Leg Lift helps people to safely reposition the leg and foot while reducing the chance of dropping the affected limb.

Matthew Magnifico, Project Manager for Maddak Inc., manufacturer of Ableware® aids for daily living, says “some people 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 Leg Loop 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. Asked about the key benefits of the Leg Loop™, Magnifico explains “it features a bottom foot loop that remains open until the strap is pulled. 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.”

The Leg Loop™ Leg Lift, item 70417-1000, is made of 1” (2.54cm) wide, durable, high quality webbing and has a suggested list price of $11.95.
