No Bend(TM) Shoes
No Bend shoes allow people to open their shoes with a hand held remote control (similar to key fob used for cars) or an app in their mobile device. Once the shoe is open the foot can be easily inserted. Then the person steps in and the shoe locks for easy walking. When one is ready to remove shoes they can once again use remote control to open it. It is a simple easy hands free operation.
No BendTM shoes will be registered with FDA as Class I Medical Device.

Solution

University of Michigan Hospital advises persons with a back surgery to use long shoe horn and a reacher/grabber tool to help in wearing shoes. People with other disabilities (Arthritis, Diabetes, Pediatric issues, etc.) that prevent them from bending have no easy way to wear their shoes.
