Donning aid for medical compression stockings with an open toe
The original textile aid to put on open-toe compression stockings in almost no time and effort!
Arion Easy-Slide provides an easy, safe and simple solution to help put on easily compression stockings and tights with an open toe. Thanks to its unique sliding properties, Arion Easy-Slide reduces friction between the skin and the compression garment. This helps the stocking slide smoothly over the skin. This contributes also to reducing the physical strain and daily stress associated with the donning and doffing task. Finally, it supports a better therapy compliance.
The friction reduction is particularly helpful to slide the garment over the heel area, which is the broadest part of the foot.
Arion Easy-Slide is compact and lightweight. It turns to be a convenient self-management aid for compression wearers themselves. But this application aid is also a useful tool for caregivers as it enables them to put on stockings on their patients in an easier and more ergonomic way.
Sizing Arion Easy Slide:
Arion Easy Slide is available in five different sizes to fit different shapes and sizes of limbs.
For young children, discover our donning aid Arion Easy-Slide Kids, available in two different sizes.
Complementary products & tips
For an optimal user experience and to reduce the physical effort to a minimum, we recommend to use further aids in combination with the Arion Easy-Slide:
- An anti-slip mat can help adjust the position of the stocking on the heel and toe area and remove the stocking off your foot without bending down too long.
- If you put on your stockings yourself independently, put your foot on a low chair/stool (approx. 40-45cm high) to reach your toes more easily without having to bend down too much or too often.
Arion Easy-Slide – the Original textile application aid since 1994
Easy-Slide is the very first product developed by the creation of Arion in 1994. With this patented invention, Arion became the pioneer in textile application aids.
The positive impact our Arion application aids could have in people’s lives became our source of inspiration. Putting on stockings turned much easier and faster for compression wearers and their caregivers. From an invention people were skeptical about, Easy-Slide turned into a successful solution that has been copied several times. We at Arion are proud of how many people recognize in our original solutions a life-changing aid.
Today, Arion Slide Solutions offers a range of 13 textile application aids and accessories for compression garments. They are available in different sizes, even adapted for young children. In countries like the Netherlands, Germany, UK, and Denmark, they became a ‘must have’ which are even partially reimbursed by health insurances.
