Smooth any wrinkles and adjust the heel and toe of the Compression Liner for comfort.
How to put on the Jobst Ulcercare Medical Compression Stocking:
Apply the Compression Liner as instructed above. Starting with the garment inside out, tuck the foot portion inside up to the heel and hold it with both hands, seam facing down.
Stretch your garment as wide as possible and in one motion, pull it onto your foot. Put the heel pocket over the back of your heel.
Take hold of the fabric just past your toes always at the sides, never the seams. Pull it up over your foot past the ankle. It should now be right side out. Adjust the garment so that the heel is in place.
Adjust the toe area for comfort by pulling your garment toward your toes and releasing.
Now work it all the way to the knee about 2” (5cm) at a time, smoothing the creases as you go – adjust any wrinkles or uncomfortable spots by gently pulling the fabric until the pressure is even.
