Donning a medical compression stocking with the medi 2in1

How to put on a medical compression stocking with medi’s 2in1 donning and doffing aid. In this video, you will get valuable information on just how easy it is.

Step 1

Lay the medi 2in1 donning aid flat on the floor. Fold the long end of the donning aid along the dotted line.

Step 2

Place your bare foot on the medi 2-in-1 donning aid with your toes pointing toward the folded border.

Please make sure that there is enough material (at least 3 cm) at the front for your toes and at the back for your heel.

Step 3

Push the material gently between two of your toes to hold the material securely.

Step 4

With your toes holding the 2in1 material, pull the stocking on over the instep and heel towards your knee.

Step 5

At this stage, the medi 2in1 donning aid stays in the stocking, hanging out at the back at the calf.

Step 6

Pull your compression stocking up no higher than about one hand’s width below your knee, so that you are able to pull the medi 2in1 out easily.

Step 7

Next, remove the 2in1 by holding the material that is still hanging out of the stocking and lift your heel slightly.

You can now easily and effortlessly pull the 2in1 donning aid out of your compression stocking or pantyhose.
