A stocking donner is used to aid in applying compression stockings. Because compression stockings are so tight and can sometimes be difficult to put on, a stocking donner helps to easily apply them.
How To Use Jobst Stocking Donner:
1: Place your compression stocking aid inside the semi-circle frame and pull the top of the stocking down over the semi-circle. The heel of the stocking must face the back of the Jobst Stocking Donner.
2: Continue to slide the stocking down over the semi-circle until the heel is centered and even with the top of the semi-circle. (It may be necessary to pull the heel farther down depending on foot and stocking size.)
3: While sitting, insert your foot into the stocking until your foot is completely on the floor. Helpful tip: Hold the heel pocket against the frame as your slide your toes into the stocking.
4: Grasp the padded handles of the Jobst Stocking Donner and gently pull the donner and stocking up the leg until the stocking is above the calf. Try not to overstretch the stocking
5: Pull the Jobst Stocking Sonner backward and down, free of the stocking.
6: Be sure the heel of the stocking is properly placed on the foot, then adjust the length and smooth out any wrinkles by stroking and smoothing with the palm of your hands
