If bending over to remove your compression stockings is difficult, try the Medi Butler Off. It works like a shoe horn in reverse. Just slide the horn into the top of your stocking and gently push down. Illustrated instructions are included.
Makes a great long handled shoe horn too!
NOTE: This item only ships within the Continental United States
Better than an extended shoe horn, October 28, 2016 By Anonymous (Windber, PA)
I am a lymphedema therapist who works hard to instruct patients in donning and doffing their own garments. We ordered this for our collection of equipment because we've had many recent patients with issues doffing their compression garments. We were having patients use extended shoe horns somewhat successfully but with limits. This is a good device as it is angled more appropriately for doffing a sock and gives a lever effect. Also the ledge on the back side is super helpful as it gathers and holds the fabric as the garment slides down the leg and over the heel. The shoe horn just couldn't do that (nor does it have the angle for leverage). Patients have noted that it makes doffing easier. Still need some strength and patience but overall a functional tool for many.

It is very useful but appears to over priced. Around US$ 20 would be more reasonable

This device works best if the stockings are loose but in that case why would one want to wear them. When using this thing you have to move it from one side to the other and move in short steps. If you try to push the sock off in one sweep, the opposite side clings to your leg and can be somewhat painful.

As stated, I bought the Medi Butler with some doubts since it had only had medium star ratings But, guess what, it works. There is a learning process but it does the job. I just had a total knee replacement and was desperate for anything that would remove my Medi hose. I trusted Medi before so I decided to give it a try. I sure am glad I did.

Put three holes in knee highs the first three times I used it. PT helped me and I'm doing better now

Helps with the frustration of trying to get that stocking off the heel when you are tired and stiff!
