Ezy-On Small Compression Stocking Applicator

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 stocking 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.

Are you a carer?granddaughter caring for elderly grandmother at home

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.

How to Use

How to use: (following the instruction leaflet included with your Ezy-on Small)

  • Place the frame on a hard surface and load the compression hose onto the frame. The hosiery garment should be placed inside and stretched outwards over the rim, until the heel is at the top of the frame.
  • Place the frame onto the floor, using one foot to steady the base. Slide toes into the top of the opening, gently pushing forward until the hosiery is in the desired position.

Please note: Hip replacement patients should use from a sitting or lying position.DO NOT use if you feel any discomfort in your back or hip and consult a health professional. Check frame for any sign of damage, sharp points prior to use

  1. Paula strain – Amazon Customer

    A must have item for all carer’s. This is fabulous. As a carer great for my job. Compact can be carried around easily light weight but sturdy at the same time. I love it made my job so easy. Putting those support stockings on is a tough job but not with this helping hands aid. I would recommend and have already recommended to colleagues.

  2. Mr Stephen Hamlin – Trust pilot

    A step into comfort. After sorting out how to fit the sock to the frame properly, that’s just me, I am ready to go in no time at all.
    This works well for me because I luckily do not suffer from any other movement problems. If you feel that you would need help, then they may suggest the tall frame.

  3. johnsalc – Amazon Customer

    I have tried several aids like this over the last few years .This is the only one that actually makes putting my socks on so much easier. I can highly recommend.

  4. Richard Gregory

    I am glad to say the our carers report that the device works very well

  5. Dave – Amazon Customer

    Very helpful to get my compression socks on

  6. V Booth

    Vey helpful, I have not been able to wear socks for years! – Keep making them!

  7. Mutznutz – Amazon Customer

    Very easy to put on. I have used this every day since I bought it and it is so easy even my Daughter has bought one and liked it.

  8. Grant Williams

    This was a godsend for when I had my Hip operation, it’s a fabulous piece of kit!

  9. Allan – Amazon Customer

    Even though I had to return this item I can recommend it if you are able to bend down. Unfortunately with the stocking in place on the frame I was unable to bend down to pull on the stocking.
    If you are able to bend down buy it, if not avoid.

  10. Ellie – Amazon Customer

    Really helps teenager with ASD/fine motor difficulties. I bought this for my autistic teen that has trouble with fine motor and has always struggled to put his socks on. This works really well for him as I can put the sock on the frame and it holds the sock open so he can just slide his foot in and only has to do a little adjusting of the sock to get it totally how he likes it to feel.

  11. GEORGE CLARKE

    This is a quality product that is a big help! I have been doing a bit of shopping online with a company called WISH they are based in China. Comparing products from WISH with the quality of the Small Stocking Aid from The Helping Hand Company makes its Quality stand out even more!

  12. Mrs Thelma Falder

    Ordered the Ezy-On Small and not the tall because I can’t get my hands in between the side of the frame and the handles
