I just want to say thank you for the wonderful service. I ordered 2 pair of compression panty hose from you and they are perfect. The nice gentleman on the phone was so helpful and gave me better advice than I ever got from the medical supply store in our town. They do have some compression in the hips and abdomen area. So many brands stop the compression at the top of the thighs and it leaves an unbecoming bump. Just want you to know that you...
Makes taking compression stockings off a breeze. PLUS... it acts as a long-handled shoehorn as well! This product comes highly recommended and is the first doffing aid of its kind.
IT'S AS SIMPLE AS...
1. Slide the tip of the horn under the topband of the stocking.
2. Now push the handle gently downwards: the far end of the horn slides down along your calf and then over your heel. During the whole process the inner surface of the horn should remain in contact with your skin. At the same time the "tooth" helps push the stocking downwards. In order to regain contact with your skin you can start again with the horn a little higher and then continue with the downward movement if necessary.
3. As soon as you reach your heel lift your heel up. Then tilt the stick downwards a little to guide the horn along the underside of your foot. Caution: Make sure you do not press the stocking against the ground with the doffing aid. Otherwise the stocking may be damaged. Now push the handle forwards gently: the stocking slides off you foot but stays on the horn.
4. Now you can pick the stocking off the aid without having to bend down.
