What are Compression Stockings for?Medical compression hosiery following surgery. Varicose veins, benefits of wearing compression stockings/tights

Compression, or surgical hosiery are specially designed to apply pressure to your lower legs. Helping to maintain blood flow and reduce discomfort and swelling in your legs. Pressure hosiery may be prescribed by your GP if you have a condition that causes poor blood flow in your legs, such as varicose veins (swollen and enlarged veins), or lymphoedema (when your body’s tissues swell up). Or following surgery or travelling.

Wearing Support Hoisiery

Medical socks come in a variety of sizes, lengths and colours depending on the level of compression you require.

Your GP or nurse will measure your legs to see what correct size you require and if they fit properly. You may need to wear them on both legs, or just on one. It will also help to wear your support stockings during the day, taking them off before bed and then applying them again first thing in the morning.

Why do I need a Compression Stocking Applicator?

Pressure socks are usually difficult to put on. This often results in users giving up trying to wearing them, therefore impacting on your long term recovery. Compression stocking applicators help wearers, or their carers, to apply compression tights quickly and easily.

  1. D Webb

    It will help me put my socks on but will take some practice

  2. Bernard – Amazon Customer

    The only device that works for me. Having tried other methods of putting on compression socks, I can say that this makes it relatively easy. Just need to be careful that the stocking does not twist while mounting it as the heel must be in the right place before inserting your foot.

  3. Mr Wightman – Trust pilot

    Works really well since it is easy to use

  4. A. R. Hudson – Amazon customer

    Although still a little difficult to use , it is certainly a very useful aid to putting on surgical compression stockings post-op.
    Although I had someone to assist me with this task we would have found it extremely difficult to do without this device .
    Well worth purchasing.

    Perfect after grandads hip operation. Ordered for my grandad after hip replacement operation and it helped him get his independence back

  6. Melbreck244 – Amazon Customer

    Dont know why I fought on for so long. I found this and I am very pleased I bought it, it has made my life of putting on compression stocking much easier, it now only takes only seconds once I get the stocking on which are closed toe, but planning to use open toe as well.
    so just for luck I tried my regular socks on with it and I managed this easily..
    Very Very pleased with it

  7. Richard Rosendale

    “Does Just What it Says on the Box” assists in putting on compression socks I bought this item for a friend to see if it would help in putting on these difficult items. It needs a little practice and getting the sock in the right position on the frame but it does work well and he is very pleased I was happy to have helped and have bought another frame to send to another friend who has the same problem Great Item
