The Mediven Assure Donning Butler is an economical aid to help you put on your compression stockings. This device really helps if you have problems bending at the waist.
Just stretch the stocking over the central metal frame almost to the heel. Make sure the heel of the stocking is toward the back of the butler pointing towards you. From a secure sitting position step into the stocking until your foot is on the floor then gently pull the butler up by the handles. Don't over stretch the stocking. Remove the butler and pull the stocking up your leg with your hands and into position.
Assure Butler has a 4 inch opening and is designed to accommodate average size legs. If you wear wide calf stockings, consider the Medi Big Butler.
NOTE: This item only ships within the Continental United States.

Although well-built the design is faulty. When inserting the sock as directed the opening at the top is not a round shape into which I could put put my leg but a thin oval. Squirming my foot in anyway and staring to insert it deeper the sock slides off the smooth sides of the device. USELESS!

I always had to have help pulling my stockings on until I bought the butler. Now I can get them on myself, I am short so I purchased the shorter one, but wondering if maybe the taller one might even be better. Highly recommend the butler,especially if short or elderly & not able to reach your feet with ease.

After having back surgery I needed something to help with putting on my compression stockings, this product is priced right and works great, no more having to try to bend over anymore.

I got this for my husband in an effort to assist in putting on the thigh high stockings he has. It helps however, it is still a challenge to put the compression stockings on without a lot of huffing and puffing.

this thing is the answer to a real pain in the posterior problem. it allows the compression stocking to be easily drawn up your leg and the vinyl gloves add the finishing touch to align the foot, toe and heel areas and to remove all creases and wrinkles. makes what used to be a difficult chore into a simple maneuver. worth every cent of the cost.

If I had not had this with my limited use of my hands, I could never have put on the stockings

This device has been so much help in getting my compression hose on. I recently had varicose vein procedure and required the hose but also had a spinal compression fracture, which made it impossible to pull up those hose without this donning butler. It really works!

This product reduces the time required to put on 30-40 mg compression stockings by 75%. The unit could be slightly larger as I have to go through some contortions to get my foot into the stocking. Overall, I recommend it.
