Greepers’ Managing Director Peter Greedy approached HDTI to investigate whether his innovative shoe laces and recently developed Greeper® Assist device might be suitable for people who have dexterity problems.

The Greeper® laces allow for the tightening and loosening of shoe laces through the use of an innovative toggle and the Greeper® Assist was developed to assist people who only have the use of one hand in tying and untying their laces.

HDTI undertook an expert evaluation of the laces, the Greeper®Assist and their instructions for use with a group of healthcare professionals. This provided feedback into their functionality and suitability for their potential target market and also identified potential user groups for the products.
