The tight weave of compression stockings offers support for your veins, but for people with arthritis and those with limited mobility and dexterity, putting on compression stockings can be a real struggle. This Doff N Donner review offers insight, info, and information about this new product from Sigvaris, as well as a link to a Doff N Donner youtube video so you can see for yourself what this new compression stocking aid is all about.
What Is the Doff N Donner?
This product is a compression stocking aid that makes it easier to take compression stockings on and off. It is a pleated tube of fabric. It works with all types and styles of compression stockings, including thigh highs, knee highs, prescription compression hose, and compression stockings from Walmart or Walgreens.
The Doff N Donner guides the compression sock over your leg. You can use it to put your own support hose on or help someone else for whom you are caregiving. The Doff N Donner is often used with the Sigvaris Cone, which helps you load the socks on the device.
How Does It Work?
To use the Doff N Donner with the Sigvaris Cone, slide the compression stocking over the cone and smooth it out. Now slide the Doff N Donner over the stocking, and pull the bottom of the stocking over the Doff N Donner. Pull the sock up until the bottom seam of the stockings is visible. Now position the seam by your foot, and roll the stocking onto your leg, continuously rolling until it’s positioned properly. Roll the Doff N Donner off your leg, and repeat on the other leg.
To remove the compression stockings with the Doff N Donner, position the device at the top of the stocking and roll the top of the stocking over the Doff N Donner. Now you can roll the stocking down your leg as the donner grips the stocking and pulls it.
