Donning and doffing aids

Donning aids and doffing aids make it easier to handle compression stockings

A compression garment must be put on to fit exactly, so it sits like a second skin on the leg or arm and can exert its full effect. The medi Butler donning aids have been developed to make donning compression garments easier: these are not only a great help for people with restricted mobility.

How medi Butlers work

medi Butlers function as easily as they are to use: the compression garment is first pulled over the frame's stirrup. This pre-stretches the stocking and the foot can glide effortlessly in. Once the toe and heel have been adjusted to fit perfectly, the stocking is then pulled up over the leg bit by bit by alternately pulling on and releasing the handles of the medi Butler.

The donning aids from medi are available as various models. All people, both large and small, will find the right medi Butler model because the donning aid is available with three different handle lengths (short, long, height-adjustable).

The Big Butler was designed for patients with large calves or leg oedema: since it is often difficult to put on compression garments over large calves, this donning aid is particularly valuable and the handles are further apart.

Those of us who do not want to travel without their compression garments find medi's travel Butler the perfect companion: the donning aid can be taken apart and stowed very neatly in the suitcase.

Donning aids are not just available for compression garments, but there is also a model for compression pantyhose: the pantyhose Butler has two stirrups, and is thus the ideal aid for putting on compression pantyhose.

By the way, there's more: the medi Butler Off is the answer for taking off compression garments without bending and without physical effort.
