The EC Support Stocking Gun ® Pro helps busy professionals do their job more effectively. In UK approximately 750,000 people require compression stockings. While there are several tools available to more easily apply the stockings, there are still many people who are unable to perform this task on their own. A study in the Netherlands showed that as many as 45,000 people were unable to put on their stockings without assistance. If you scale that up for the UK the figure will be close to 150,000. This is due to the force required (particularly in the hands) and the need to bend forwards to reach the feet.
Designed to overcome these issues the EC Support Stocking Gun ® Pro was developed for healthcare professional, enabling them to effortlessly put stockings on. What once was a huge effort can now be quickly and easily achieved, freeing you up to concentrate on other aspects of care.
Another advantage of the EC Support Stocking Gun ® Pro is the very low friction, significantly lower than the traditional application methods. Pulling tight material over inflamed legs can be very distressing for the user. This device solves that problem by holding the garment away from the skin until it is in its optimum position.
