Donning and doffing aid for medical compression stockings with an open toe
The multifunctional application aid to put on and take off easily open-toe compression stockings
Thanks to its unique sliding properties, Arion Sim-Slide® provides a simple solution to help put on and take off more easily medical compression stockings and tights with an open toe. Arion Sim-Slide® reduces friction between the skin and the compression garment. This helps the stocking slide easily and 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 Sim-Slide® is compact and lightweight. It turns to be a convenient self-management aid for compression wearers themselves. But it is also adapted to and useful for caregivers who assist them, making their work easier – every day.
Sizing Arion Sim-Slide® :
Arion Sim-Slide® is available in four different sizes to fit different shapes and sizes of limbs.

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 Sim-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.
