Ezy-On Compression Aid
Putting on compression socks, TED stockings or medical tights can be a challenge and notoriously difficult to put on yourself or your carer. Especially if you are unable to bend down, have reduced upper body strength or restricted flexibility.
The Ezy-on compression frame is part of our dressing aids range. It is a strong robust metal frame which helps keep the compression stocking open. Making it easier to get the stocking onto your foot, but also reduces the stress in your hands and wrists caused by pulling the stocking open.
To gain the benefits of wearing compression stockings following procedures such as hip replacements or knee surgery, you need to be putting them on first thing in the morning, every day. Legs and feet are less swollen at the beginning of the day and you will get the maximum benefit as you are active throughout the day.
Tight compression stockings and support socks compress your legs, to increase circulation up and down the legs and feet. They are designed to work with your body to help keep the blood flowing back from the legs to the heart. Commonly used to prevent and treat conditions such as DVT (deep vein thrombosis, a blood clot deep in the vein); treat varicose veins and venous leg ulcers.
Helping Hand Ezy-on compression aid frame features:
- Suitable for both above and below the knee support stockings, everyday casual socks, sports socks and open toe medical TED stockings.
- The Ezy-On small compression applicator can be used safely after surgery, either lying down, sitting down or standing up.
- Compact and portable design – the Ezy-on Small compression frame is easy to pack up and store or take when travelling.
- This stocking/sock aid is available to buy in both small (ideal as a carers aid) and tall (Use on your own) versions.

In the UK today, around 6.5 million people are recognised as carers, the equivalent of 1 in 10 adults. As many as one in five children and young people are young carers too!
Becoming a carer can happen gradually or very suddenly. It can last for years or days. Each caring role is different too, for example you might:
- Drop round each day to keep someone company or cook their meals
- Visit a friend or relative once a month, who lives far away, to see how they are doing
- Move in with someone to help them recover after a fall or major surgery
- Provide physical and/or emotional support
- Be on hand 24 hours a day to provide care
We have crafted a useful carer guide full of support and advice if you are a carer.
