Instead of struggling to bend over, or painfully rocking the foot back and forth trying to fit inside a shoe, the FootFunnel allows the user to simply put the device into the shoe and then place the shoe onto the floor.  It is one possible product that can replace a long shoe horn.  Located on the back of the shoe, the cone-shaped device facilitates foot insertion.  The attached cord allows the user to pull the funnel out of the shoe, or the user can remove the funnel by using their other foot or a reacher.
