The Juzo Easy Pad is similar in texture to a mouse pad. This pad allows you to use leg muscles to help push your compression stocking on. Repeatedly sliding your heel forward against the pad to slide your foot into the compression garment. By doing so you minimizing the need to bend at the waist. Watch this You Tube Video for a demonstration of how quickly and easily you can don and doff those compression stockings.
Use the Easy Pad with the Tyvex slipper that comes with your Juzo Dynamic open toe stocking. If you do not have the slipper, or if you have a closed toe stocking use with the Juzo Slippie Gator. The Slippie Gators long handles also contribute to the ease of not having to bend over. The Easy Pad and the Slippie Gator can be purchased as a set to save money.
When using the Juzo Easy Pad it is also recommended to use donning gloves. These gloves make it easy to grab a hold of the fabric and lift it off the leg to pull it up. Another benefit of the donning gloves are that they protect the stocking against holes and runs from nails or jewelry. Donning gloves are fairly inexpensive, but you could also use rubber kitchen gloves in a pinch.
