How to Apply Your Medical Socks

How to Apply Your Medical Socks
Helpful Hints:
  • Skin should be dry
  • Applying a thin layer of cornstarch or powder will help the stockings or sleeve slide over your skin
  • Remove your rings and jewelry that can damage your garment
  • Purchase the Professional Fitter's Gloves to prevent fingernails from damaging the fabric  - they also help provide grip to distribute the fabric more easily
  • Avoid rolling, gathering or bunching the fabric, as this will only increase the pressure – like creating a super rubber band.
  • Apply moisturizer to your legs or arm in the evening rather than just before putting on your stocking or sleeve
