The Jobst Stocking Donner is great for people who have trouble getting a support stocking on their foot. To use, stretch the stocking over the central frame to the heel pocket. From a secure sitting position, step into the sock until your foot is on the floor. Slowly pull up on the donner handles, working the stocking up your leg. Remove the donner. You can now finish putting on the stocking with your hands. Remember to always wear donning gloves.
NOTE: This item only ships within the Continental United States

It works really well! Now I can put my socks on by myself.

This is the best I have ever used, however, you have to figure out the correct way to use it. This is how I got the stockings on my husbands very painful legs. Put the stocking on the donner. I slide it down until you can see the heel and keep going until all you see is the toe hole. I hold the stockings to keep them from slipping, put his toe in-remember very painful legs, then slowly slide his foot in, once you are past the heel, I give it to him to pull it up. Works perfectly. It took a bit of going on and coming off many times, much to his dismay, until I got it. Now he looks forward to it as he battles chemo treatments.
So happy we tried it, March 11, 2016 By Susanne Oakley (Auburn, CA)
Since I had such a hard time putting on my first pair of compression socks and husbands Doctor also prescribed socks for him too, decided to try this as was afraid if husband had as difficult time as I did, he may not wear them. And was assured if didn't like could return! So happy it worked as no longer the struggle I encountered before and makes wearing compression socks so much easier! They even help on the thigh high I recently purchased!

This product removed all anxiety about learning to put on compression hosiery. Use it daily, and recommend this product.
My wife and I have both tried to make this donner work without any success. We both found that the stocking slides up the donner and makes a bungie cord in th opening between the back rim and the vertical rods stopping any chance of getting any further. If I get started and past the heel the stocking rolls up the back of the vertical rod, around the back rim and prevents any further movement.

unfortunately, the unit is difficult to use and I would like to return it to replace it with a different Donner system.
Fantastic!!, September 15, 2015 By Anonymous (VA)
This made putting compression socks on so easy! Absolutely thrilled. Just slide the sock over, (pay attention to wear the heel is so you put it on straight), slip your foot in, pull up the donner and your sock is on! Especially great for people with weaker hand strength or struggle with this daily routine.
Not happy with the product, August 10, 2015 By Anonymous (Janesville, WI)
Doesn't work for me. Stocking slips off the frame before you get your foot in. It seems worthless to me and it cost me in postage almost the price of the product.
The greatest, June 23, 2015 By Nat (NY)
My brother was having such a hard time putting on his compression stockings he was about to give up. I search the web and found your stocking dinner he now uses it every day thank you so much. It's the greatest.......

Really helps a lot. I wear high compression stockings and the hardest part is getting it over my heel. This makes that much easier especially since I hurt my back this makes it much less painful.

Couldn't Do Without This, August 8, 2014 By Anonymous (Bay City, MI)
This product works very well for me. I generally wear the knee highs. I do have some thigh highs and it is a bit more difficult to put those on. I might investigate another product for those. But for the knee highs it is the perfect assist. I absolutely could not put on my stockings without this.
Very useful product !!, October 24, 2013 By Elneta Blocker (Bamberg, SC)
This item is a tremendous help in putting on the compression stockings. I would have to pull and tug to get them on. I have arthritis in my hands and very little strength which made it very difficult. But with the donner it is very easy; however it may take a few times to get the hang of it. Very definitely worth the price.

5 stars for the Jobst stocking donner. I never knew there was a simple contraption that helped with compression hose. When you get older you just do not have the strength to do the pulling that is required. Now I can easily have my stocking on in a few easy seconds. Thank you so much. I am more than satisfied with your product.

I have tried several other devices to assist with "donning" my compression hose. I must say that the Jobst Stocking Donner is the easiest device I have used and would highly recommend it to anyone that needs help with putting on their compression hose.

My husband found his graduated compression socks so helpful that he wanted a stocking donner to help get them on every day. First he ordered a little cheap one which was not very much help. Then he saw this Jobst Stocking Donner on your site and he was extremely pleased with how much easier it made the daily task. We would heartily recommend it to anyone that uses compression stockings.

This product is far more difficult to use than the web description indicates. After a number of attempts I still haven't succeeded in using it.

I should have added to my review above that it can be used with other brands than Jobst as I have used this donner with TEDS and Sigvaris and they all work fine.

Hooray! After years of struggling to put compression stockings on my mother I finally purchased the Jobst Stocking Donner. It is worth every penny. It is so much easier on both Mom and me. Very satisfied in Pearland TX.

I have used this product for a few months and it may not be perfect but it is a great help. I don't have arthritis and putting the stocking on the frame is no problem. It appears well made but if something happens to mine I will buy another one.
I bought this produc…, March 10, 2011 By Anonymous (Sylvania, OH)
I bought this product because I have arthritis in my fingers which makes it difficult and painful to stretch and pull support stockings over my foot.This Jobst donner did NOT make the process any easier - in fact it's even more difficult to stretch the stocking over the central frame and then all the way down to the heel pocket. Plus it's frustrating to use because the heel pocket must be lined up perfectly; otherwise the stocking goes on off center and the whole process must be started over. Or if it's not stretched down on the frame far enough the stocking slips off the frame after your toe goes in.It would also be difficult to use for anyone with back problems because the donner is low to the ground and requires bending over.This product needs some type of spring mechanism on the central frame to allow for easier use.Not recommended. Very frustrating to use.
