The Ezy-As compression stocking donning aid is the easiest of the three types I've tried. I have a Jobst Stocking Donner that is a vinyl covered steel frame and a Sigvaris Doff n' Donner that is a squishy rubbery cylinder filled with liquid. Although these two work, they are not nearly as easy to use as the Ezy-As Donning Aid.
The Ezy-As is the only one with which I can put the stocking on my leg with one hand. My left arm & hand and left leg have limited mobility and strength. The Ezy-As lets me use just my right hand to put the stocking on my left leg. My stockings are 20-30 mmHg compression.
The brochure that came with the Ezy-As says if the leg measurement is in the overlap between sizes, order the smaller size Ezy-As. I cannot find that advice on any websites about the Ezy-AS. My left leg calf measurement is in the overlap between size small and size medium. Since I wear a size medium compression stocking, I ordered a size medium Ezy-As. A size small Ezy-AS would be much better because it is very difficult to slide the stocking onto the size medium donner, even with grippy gloves.
Once I have the stocking on the donning aid, putting the stocking on my leg is a snap! And I can do it with only one hand. Yea! Sometimes I can get the stocking on my leg perfectly straight with the Ezy-As and not need to make any adjustments once the stocking is on the leg.
The Ezy-As is a winner. I might eventually buy a size small to make it easier to slide the stocking on the Ezy-As.

I have been using products to aid in putting on expansion socks. This product is the easiest to use with the least amount of effort.

Excellent. It helped my Mom tremendously to pull on her compression stocking.

I assist my paraplegic husband getting dressed. This aid has made it so there is so much less strength and pressure needed to put on his socks that it does bother my old joints to do it any more.

This is easy to use. It will be easier to pack in a suitcase for travel than the wire applicator I already have.

I am a Lymphedema therapist and this works great for caregiver assisted donning of stockings OR for clients who can either effectively bed to reach their foot or stand to step into their stocking using Ezy-As otherwise need to buy the handles.

Wish I had known about this product when I first started wearing a compression sleeve, it makes putting it on a breeze, no tugging or pulling at all, and very little adjusting afterward. I also use if for putting on compression hose which is a little more difficult since I have restricted knee and hip movement. As I get used to using it I am sure it will become easier. I have to show everyone who comes around how easy it is to use, I am that excited about it.

Before EZY-AS putting on the compression stockings raised my stress level. It was well worth the money

I certainly couldn't get my stockings on without the EZY-AS. However, I do recommend also getting the cord attachment, especially for anyone with a back problem. This is more than a great help.

To those who think it difficult to put on compression stockings, you will be more than pleased with the ease this applicator assists you in need seconds.

I love it. Since I can't reach my feet or ankles and I find it hsrd to bend, this Donner allowes me to wear my compresion hose.

Love this item. It is so much easier then the other 2 that we got from the hospital when my husband was in rehab.

This makes donning stockings extremely easy.

It is a very well designed product. It is, so far, the only thing that has helped me to put compression stockings on my husband. Very helpful, easy to use, and well priced. Excellent product.
- Susan Nichols
Struggled with compression hose many times and tried other gadgets to help putting on. This is so simple and fast! Was recommended by member of our MS group and I agree. This should be sold along side socks in pharmacy departments.

EZY-AS is the only stocking donner we've tried that efficiently and painlessly gets the job done. Adding the extensions, which do go onto and off of the device easily, has made it possible for the lymphedema patient in my family to don his compression stockings himself, a big relief for me as his caregiver.

This is the coolest thing ever to put my support hose on with! My husband uses it without the strings and I am able to put them on with the strings. This is one of many products that I have tried and the only one that has been successful for me. I have had Ms for 35 years.

Being on limited income, I was hesitant to spend the money for the EZY-AS product. I am very glad that I did purchase the donner. It makes the process much easier to handle for knee hi and thigh hi also.

Many thanks go out to the Aussie who invented this product. Putting on compression is now possible without a second pair of hands.
