The Helping Hand EZY-On Compression Stocking Aid Tall is an adapted dressing aid designed with a strong robust metal frame. The frame is designed to keep the compression stocking open, making it easier to slide the stocking onto the foot. The foam handles reduce the stress on the user's hands and wrists caused by pulling the stocking open.
The Helping Hand EZY-On Compression Stocking Aid Tall has long handles to make it easier to use from a seated or lying position and enables users to apply their stockings. The soft foam handles are easy to hold and the bottom has non-slip feet for increased safety. The unique design of the metal frame keeps the compression stocking open and makes it easier for the user to slide the stocking onto their foot. The frame is placed on a hard surface and the compression hose is loaded onto the frame. The garment is placed inside the frame and then stretched outwards over the rim until the heel is at the top of the frame. The frame keeps the garment open to allow the user to slide their toes into the top of the opening, gently pushing forward until the hosiery is in the desired position. This dressing aid can be used either lying down, sitting down, or standing up position. Users will find this adapted dressing aid helpful for applying above and below-the-knee support stockings, class 1 and 2 compression tights, open-toe medical TED stockings, everyday casual socks, and sports socks. The Helping Hand EZY-On Compression Stocking Aid Tall measures 15 inches tall and has a 5-inch wide opening.
The Helping Hand EZY-On Compression Stocking Aid is available in 2 sizes, a small and tall version. The smaller frame can be used as a carer’s aid to assist with the putting on of compression hosiery. The taller frame has long handles to make it easier to use from a seated or lying position and enables people dressing on their own to apply their stockings.
