Product review of a device for putting on and removing compression garments



this is Robert Erickson lymphedema therapist and occupational therapist in Wilmington North Carolina with self-care therapy a lymphedema management Center here I've 10 years experience working with over a thousand lymphedema patients and I'm now dedicated to try to teach donning and doffing techniques I'm hoping this video goes out to some of the other lymphedema therapist and occupational therapists across the country and I want to share an invention an adaptive device that we have sort of discovered from Europe and we are importing now here to make it available first of all to our own patients but we want to make it available to all lymphedema patients and people that are struggling with putting on compression stockings across the country this is one of the devices that we keep on our website this is the go-to device for us now for anyone who cannot reach their feet and what I like about this one is the fact that it has really long handles and and the length is adjustable so of the different donning frames on the market this one I believe has the longest handles and they'll and has adjustable handles there are some other ones that have long handles and are adjustable but here's where this one differs from them it actually has a method for taking stockings off and as the therapists you probably know that if they cannot reach to put their stockings on it's going to be even more difficult to take the stockings off since that requires reaching even further because now you're reaching this awkward position away from your body that's what made me go to the length of actually importing this device from Europe because it's not available in America so we do have it now in our clinic and we can ship it to anywhere in the country so to be able to keep importing this device I want to spread this to other therapists so that you guys can also utilize this with your patients you can order it on the website or give us a call if you're a therapist and your Clinic and you wanted a demo version of this give us a call and we'll give you a discount on your demo version I refer to the manufacturer's video to see how it actually works so just click the link on this up here on this video and it will take you to our website this website is a great resource for your patients because everybody doesn't have the problem with reaching there could be other problems there are many other devices and we just try to share what we know about these devices and make them available easy in one spot like the one-stop shop because we've found it's just so confusing for patients to try to figure out well there's all these great inventions out there but which one is going to work for me so I hope that you find that website usable or useful for your patients and for you in trying to decide which device will work for what person and I always give us a call we'd love to share our experience with you too
