Bort Donning Aid for putting on socks or stockings
This aid enables you to put on your socks or compression stockings in an energy-saving and comfortable manner, even in case of reduced strength and restricted mobility, thus helping you to handle your socks or compression stockings safely and independently in daily use.
It's also indicated for people who suffer from:
- Considerable functional disorders of the finger, hand or arm joints, primarily
the gripping function, highly inflammatory or considerably degenerative
joint diseases, paralysis, deforming diseases in the hand region, results of
injury, amputations, malformations, far-reaching spinal, hip and knee joint
stiffness as well as obesity.
- The aid is indicated due to the impossibility to reach to the stockings with the arms, e.g. in cases of far-reaching spinal, hip and knee joint stiffness as well as obesity
Suitable for AD, AG and AT compression stockings as well as hosiery, socks and TED hose

In order to ensure successful use of your Donning Aid from the beginning, we kindly request you to read these instructions for use attentively.
Use the Donning Aid for medical compression stockings or normal socks
together with a table and chair with four freestanding chair legs.
|Put the Donning Aid fon the table. Whilst holding the shell with one hand, pull the frame to its greatest possible length with the other hand until the side locking mechanism engages.|
|Place the shell in an upright, vertical position and the frame at the rear of the table.|
|Grasp the socks or the compression stocking with both hands at the upper edge so that the heel points towards the body.|
|Then slip the socks or the compression stocking evenly over the shell until the stocking’s heel area is around the upper edge of the shell.|
|Set the splint hook so that the distance between the hook and the rear edge of the shell is approximately as long as your foot.|
|Put the shell down on the base plate and set the frame upright.|
|Sit down on the chair with sufficient space in the immediate vicinity and place the donning aid with the base plate on the floor. Anchor the hook around the leg of a chair, securing the donning aid against forwards movement.|
|Continue to hold the frame and insert the foot into the compression stocking from the rear to the heel.|
|Press your foot further forwards against the resistance of the compression stocking.|
|As soon as the shell straightens up, press your foot down until your heel contacts the floor.|
|Press your heel onto the floor and pull the frame in your direction until the upper edge of the shell reaches your popliteal fossa.|
|Place the frame aside.|
|Pull the socks or the compression stocking the rest of the way to the desired position.|
|If required, the knitted fabric can still be ideally spread over the leg and any creases in the compression stocking smoothened out.|
