Measurement & Application Informational Video

*Measurements should always be taken as soon as possible after waking when swelling is at its minimum


*Measure against bare skin


*The measuring system is based on having the foot flat against the floor and leg at a right angle to the foot


*Measurements must be taken by pulling the measuring tape snugly around the leg but without constricting the skin

1. Pull stocking inside out to heel. With thumbs in and fingers out, grasp each side of heel, gently slide over foot until heel pocket is centered over heel.

2. Begin turning right-side-out. Continue gradually pulling up the leg. For pantyhose: pull past thighs and over hips; adjust for comfort.

3. Remove folds or wrinkles, gently pulling upwards smoothing over leg. Fabric should be smooth and uniform. Do not fold top or waistband over.

4. Remove by turning “inside out”, gently pulling down to ankle. Insert finger, gently pull over ankle, heel and off the foot.
