The EzyAs Foot Funnel is an advanced Foot Funnel shoehorn designed to help put on footwear.
Our Foot Funnel Shoe Aid keeps hands free for better balance and limits bending and twisting, safer and easier when putting on a shoe.
No more collapsed heel walls in your shoes, the Funnel makes getting the shoe on so much easier
EzyAs™ products ship from Australia to Australian addresses only. If you are an international customer please contact the distributor in your country/region.
Traditional shoe horns still require a degree of bending to reach the shoe and hold the shoehorn in balance. EzyAs Foot Funnel shoe assist doesn’t need to be held in place, it sits over the top of your shoe, holding it open and protecting the heel of the shoe from becoming squashed.
Once your heel is comfortably inside the shoe, gently pull the string on the foot funnel and remove the funnel from the shoe.
These devices are hands-free shoe donning and help those recovering from injuries and find it difficult to bend over or maybe wearing a knee brace. It is commonly used by those with back conditions, arthritis and leg ulcers.
I was introduced to the Ezy-As nearly 2 years ago now. A mutual friend invited me round to her place to watch a demonstration of its use, as she knew that I wear compression stockings for oedema. I was very impressed with what I saw. A few weeks later my friend presented me with one for my birthday, (July 2007) bless her, and I have used it ever since.
I did struggle with the loading at first, until I realized that I was trying to load the stocking inside out. I now find it a breeze, and even take it on holidays and overnight stays as I would be lost without it. It is a great size and fits neatly around my toiletries bag for packing, thus taking no space and protected from breakage as well.
This sturdy little device has made a great difference to the wearing of my stocking.
I can now put one on straight after a shower, even if my leg is still slightly damp. I have quite dry skin, so was loathe to use talcum powder.
It is so much easier to manoeuvre over my ankle and has saved my finger nails from breakages into the bargain.
I have been trialing the use of a half length stocking worn with the full length one, and it is no trouble to put both on, one on top of the other.
Thanks both Barrys for your terrific invention
Anti-embolic stockings are a well know strategy in the prevention of venous blood clots. The stockings provide measured compression around the legs and due to this are difficult to apply. Over the years some devices, including plastic shopping bags, have been used to assist with the application. Some worked better then others, but I have not seen any that work as well as the new EZY-AS.
It really is as easy as! Staff and patient's alike love this new invention! It is easy to use, easy to clean and very cost effective. At The Northern Hospital EZY-AS applicators are stored next to our anti embolic stocking supply. When required, staff collect both stockings and applicator. Either staff use the EZY-AS to apply the stockings, or they teach the patient on how they can do this themselves.
To check skin integrity and for hygiene purposes, stockings must be briefly removed at least twice a day. To ensure good compliance we now keep the EZY-AS at the patient's bed-side, either until the stockings are no longer required or the patient is discharged. Staff and patients love using the EZY-AS. It is such an easy solution for such a long-standing problem! You should try it!

I was frustrated! As an Operating Theatre Registered Nurse, I am required to apply compression stockings on Pre-operative patients every day however the arthritis in my hands prevented me from performing this task well.
As an avid fan of ABC TV’s ‘New Inventors’ program, I contacted the inventors, when I saw the ‘EZYAS Applicators”! They kindly dispatched a set to me & I introduced ‘EZYAS’ to my work colleagues immediately.
What a wonderful invention! It’s safe, easy, quick and not painful, for either the nurse or the patient – could’t be better! As a result the Hospital has placed orders for sets of ‘EZYAS Applicators’ to be used in all Departments & Wards; from Pre-OP Admission Centre to Cardiac & Orthopaedic wards and many patients have ordered their own too! Thank you to the Hildebrandts for their most thoughtful & useful invention!
