Compression Stocking Applicator / NHS COmpression Stocking AId
Hospital Direct’s EZY-AS Stocking Applicator makes putting compression socks on easier than ever before.
The multi-award-winning EZY-AS Stocking Applicator overcomes the difficult – and sometimes painful – experience of applying upper- and lower-limb compression garments. The applicator assists those with limited mobility, who can regain their independence by using the compression stocking applicator to dress. Alternatively, carers can use the applicator to help patients who find it difficult to put on tight-fitting compression garments.
To use the EZY-AS Stocking Applicator, position the applicator with the elongated hole facing you. Ensure the heel of your stocking is in the centre as you lower the garment into the cavity. Spread the top band of your garment over the rim and pull it down over the applicator. Grip your garment and slide it down over the outside. Many patients find it helpful to support themselves using a low bench or coffee table when using the applicator.
The stocking applicator is available in three sizes to fit all, each colour coded for easy identification: small (28–35cm), medium (32–40cm) and large (38–47cm). We also stock an optional handle attachment, which is ideal for patients who need additional support when putting on compression garments.
