How to wear therapeutic medical stockings – Video tutorial

Therapeutic medical stockings are widely used for the treatment of venous dysfunctions. In this short video tutorial, here are some basic tips on how to choose the right size and wear them without problems.

Useful tips

  • It is recommended to wear the stocking in the morning as soon as you get up.
  • Protect the socks from contact with oils, creams and ointments that are applied to the legs as part of a medical prescription or for cosmetic reasons.
  • Rough nails or rings with edges can damage the product mesh.
  • If the skin is damp, apply talcum powder to the foot to facilitate the sliding of the sock.
  • To put on the open toe sock, help yourself with the "sock" accessory that may be provided.
