Donning a thigh length stocking with a toe with medi Butler
How to put on a medical compression stocking with medi Butler. In this video, you will get valuable information on how easily it works.
Lay the compression stocking in the stirrup with the toe of the stocking facing forwards. Turn the upper boarder of the stocking over the frame.
Slide the stocking down over the stirrup until the heel appears over the edge of the frame.
Now place the medi Butler on the floor. Slip your foot, toes first, into the tip of the stocking. For stability, it is recommended that you lean against something firm (e.g. table, wall) while you do so.
Now step into the rigid stand. Please check that the toe and the heel of the stocking are correctly positioned.
By pulling alternately on the handles, you can now comfortably slide the stocking up towards your knee.
When the stocking is just below the knee, tilt the medi Butler slightly backwards and remove it from the stocking and put it to one side.
To finish, smooth the compression stocking upwards evenly. Please make sure that you ease the stocking up bit by bit without gathering it up or pulling on the top. Wearing rubber gloves will make this easier.
