Someone asked, really they did.
Medline makes a pincher type grabber that’s the most useful thing in my life right now. (For those who want to know: REF MDS86031RCE).The two pinchers form a big U shape that’s sturdy and can pull on almost anything. Since I still cannot bend beyond a 90 degree angle with my hip, for me it is really important to be able to do things by myself.
Thanks to these pinchers, I can grab a whole pant leg tightly in the U, put it on the floor, not letting go, then when my foot is in the opening, I can pull it up. Ditto underwear. Without them, I couldn’t get dressed. They give me a degree of independence I wouldn’t have otherwise.
