This simple device gives you like an extra hand for rubbing the stocking on from the bottom. When I notice that a patient is spontaneously trying to rub the foot on the carpet to push the stocking on or adjust the heel I bring out the Easy pad.
If you can not reach the bottom of the foot for a longer time but is able to reach the top of your foot.
In combination with a Easy Slide (or the Slippie that comes with Juzo open toe stockings) to minimize prolonged bending.
Allow for use of leg muscles to help getting the stocking past the heel.
Assist with final adjustments by rubbing foot against the mat.
You usually still have to be able to reach at least the front of the ankle to assist with the hands and gloves.
