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 Hosiery

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. E Rogers

    The compression frame has made all the difference putting stockings on as this has been extremely difficult in the past. Fast efficient delivery.

  2. Robert Beadle – Trustpilot

    Great product, ideal for the elderly, easy to use

  3. Julie Neale – Amazon Customer

    Easy to load compression or travel socks. Practice makes perfect! Saves me having to get hubby to help putting them on!

  4. elaine carver – Amazon Customer

    I can wear socks now went around for years now I can wear socks

  5. Catherine Doherty – Amazon Customer

    A great help when trying to put on very tight support socks, just a little tricky at first but after a couple of uses I’m a pro now

  6. Jacqueline J Waller – Amazon Customer

    My husband could not bend enough to put his socks on and, being independent, hated asking for help. With this he can manage on his own.

  7. MR S RILEY – Amazon Customer

    finally found a gizmo that works re: putting on Diabetic stockings, tried other push me pull you Velcro products usually ending in snapping the pull strings. this sturdy metal machine is simplistic but it works… and it’s most likely unbreakable the video in the Amazon sales page shows how easy it is to use so no needful images here. thanks Helping Hand Company!

  8. Stephen Wyatt – Amazon Customer

    Relatively easy to use but, a bit on the small side. If you have large calves or, feet larger than about size 10/12 , it would be very difficult to use.

  9. Mrs. S. D. R. – Amazon Customer

    I have struggled and sometimes been in agony trying to get not only the socks on, but to continue to have the strength to actually pull them up. In short – they have even damaged my hands. But this frame arrived and was a miracle. My legs were becoming increasingly swollen as I couldn’t do battle with the socks any longer – so tried to cope without – with resulting damage to my legs. The frame arrived yesterday – such fast delivery – and when I used it this morning I had my compression socks on in seconds. What was normally an exhausting struggle with the dreaded socks, was easy – with only a bit of adjustment required by me. Sure, I’ve bought many more fun and exciting things on Amazon over the years, but this item has been the one I’d rate the highest. I’ve ordered two more – one as a spare and one for a family member. You can’t put a price on comfort and convenience.

    Since being disabled, this is one of the best products I have purchased. Other reviews quite rightly point out some of the problems in loading and using the device. I too had a problem, but I addressed it by using a pair of rubber gloves. I also load it whilst standing up and standing the unit on top of a chest of drawers. Doing this, it is easier to see what you are doing. If the gap to put your foot in is not at the centre, you can change this by twisting the stocking whilst on the frame and by making the hole in the centre. A few times practice will ensure that it is easier. Being at an angle is one of the best aspects to help. A totally vertical unit is no good. ‘Marigolds and practice’!!

  11. Jo – Amazon Customer

    Bought for mum one of many devices to help her put on the stocking things as she’s now living alone unfortunately her legs are far to swollen to go in the object and those damn stocking are almost impossible for someone who is a little more able than an 80+ lady to get on the device unfortunately mum refuses to use the stockings can’t get them on anyway so her legs are far far worse than when I originally bought this device

  12. W Simkins

    This has made putting on my stockings so much easier

  13. CW – Amazon Customer

    With arthritic hands, my mother was struggling to put her support tights on, and had stopped wearing them. This has given back her independence.

  14. Tony M – Amazon Customer

    Strong and easy to use but quite heavy and not collapsible, so takes up space and must be lifted onto knees as a whole for loading socks.

  15. Jane Freeland

    I reviewed this about 10 days ago, when we first got it and hadn’t learned how to use it. It still has to be a joint effort with my husband as I’m not yet able to make the hand movements required to get stocking onto the frame. But we’ve just about got it sorted, and I’ve been able to sign off with my morning carer. So, positive.

  16. Margaret – Amazon Customer

    This product arrived on time & is a god send . Took 2 or 3 days of use before getting it right but no problems with use since. Makes life so much easier, no more struggling to put compression socks on. Would definitely recommend.

  17. MRS M A DEBENHAM – Amazon Customer

    Helpful for a carer – After a knee replacement, I wasn’t able to use this on my own but the person assisting me did find it was easier than putting the stockings on directly.

  18. Amazon Customer

    My husband found it impossible to put his compression stockings on even with my help as they were so strong. We bought this device out of desperation and are so pleased we did!! It takes a couple of days of usage to get used to it but after a bit of perseverance it is fantastic. Would definitely recommend it.

  19. Linda tuck wood – Amazon Customer

    Very easy to use, would recommend to anyone very sturdy frame.

  20. Dave T – Amazon Customer

    Easy to use saves a lot of pain trying to put on socks, works every time.
    Would recommend strong well made.

  21. sleepeasy – Amazon Seller

    Having tried many different types of sock & compression stocking aids I felt that I was destined to struggle on by hand trying to get my knee high compression stockings on.
    Not easy when you have hip & spinal problems that limit your movement!
    That was until a friend suggested I try the Ezy-on tall compression & sock aid. On arrival I read though the instructions several times to ensure that I was going to use it properly & not cause myself any unessasary injury & it did take a few attempts until I had it mastered. The tall handles mean much less bending & once the stocking is in position it is simple to slide your foot in, pull up on the handles & the stocking glides smoothly up the leg!
    What a great find, thank you.

  22. John Waugh

    Early days but seems a great piece of kit.

  23. Irene Smyth

    Brother in law was so impressed he took mine so I ordered another – great product

  24. Amazon Customer

    Having just been discharged following heart surgery I ordered this product to assist to get TED stockings on, fantastic worked a treat even District Nurse impressed.

  25. Daphne Earnshaw

    Disappointed with product as the frame hurts my ankles

  26. D Webb

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

  27. 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.

  28. Mr Wightman – Trust pilot

    Works really well since it is easy to use

  29. Wightman

    works really well since it is easy to use

  30. 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.

  31. zoe cort – Amazon Customer

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

  32. 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

  33. 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

  34. Audrey Lowe

    We currently have an Ezy-on Small used as a care aid for my husband. Now ordering the tall so he can do it himself

  35. Woody – Amazon Customer

    This is the most useful, best designed device I have ever bought. It has transformed my usual morning fight with my compression socks to an easily performed task.

  36. D Dyson

    Great product for putting my socks on

  37. F Francis

    No more struggling to get compression stockings on, Life will be easier now, thank you

  38. C Pearce

    Easier to fit surgical socks, Even if not all the way up.

  39. Terry Rowe

    I struggle with Arthritis and I need something to help me put my sports socks on. Hopefully this will help.

  40. Anthony Cox

    I am extremely pleased with the items I have received over the years. The Ezy-on is magic! – It has been invaluable to me; I use this daily to put my pressure stockings on following hip surgery last year. I also have the Foxy which is marvellous for putting on my ankle socks! – Thank you

  41. P Elliot – Amazon Customer

    Does what it says on the tin. Extremely helpful after open heart surgery with no strain on the healing sternum

  42. robert melling – Amazon Customer

    Just started wearing below knee compression stockings. Tried to apply than by hand however I struggled to say the least. This gizmo is a god send. Place applicator flat on bed roll the stockings ( inside out ) over it. Place on floor insert foot and pull the stocking over leg. I deducted on star for value as it’s a little pricey. However highly recommended.
