Butlers are a big help to a lot of patients, but they're also bulky and take up a lot of space. For patients who don't need or want a butler in their home, there are other options. One disadvantage of compression stockings or compression sleeves is that your grip might slip while trying to pull them on. medi offers rubber gloves to avoid this problem. They help you maintain a secure grip on the knitted fabric of your compression garments while being gentle to the elastic fibres, making sure they're not damaged in the process.
Along with the gloves, you can also use the 2in1 medi donning and doffing aid. It's like a sock made from smooth material that you step on before pulling on your compression stockings. You then use the donning aid to slide the stocking up your leg and then pull the aid free. Since it's just a tube of fabric, it is easy to store and a great solution for while you're travelling.
