This page provides guidance on how to put on compression stockings more easily by using the Ofa Foot Glider:

Good to know...

  • Ask your medical practitioner to show you how to use this aid and try it out yourself before you make a purchase.
  • When purchasing compression stockings, a Foot Glider should be included automatically.
  • For additional support, the special gloves Ofa Grip will give you a secure grip and protect the knitted fabric of your compression stockings.
  • Please note that the compression stocking should not be pulled up by the seam but should instead be gently brushed upwards using your hands.
  • It’s best to put on the compression stockings right after getting up as your legs won't be as swollen.
  • You should refrain from using lotions or cremes beforehand unless they’re explicitly suited for compression stockings.
  • If you shower beforehand, please ensure that your skin is entirely dry before putting the aid on.
