For the husband who has problems lifting his legs into bed, I use a loose pair of leg warmers around my ankles which form a soft (not compressing) 'strap'.  Mine are made from silk so very light and comfortable.  I have tried leg lifters but my feet fall out.  For as long as your husband has strength in his arms I hope this will be an inexpensive solution for him.  Sent with love.

Hey there

I invited Sharon who now owns GlamSticks here and I noticed she has joined, maybe that is something she would be interested in? xx

Hi Colin

Thanks for the welcome
You can see that I quickly set up my profile. I added logos for the products and wanted to add photos but the system would not allow me to add any more photos from my own files and would only allow photos from a URL. I presume there is a limit on file sizes for individual profile or can I add more photos.
