Helpful Tips and Suggestions
Donning Suggestions
Properly fitting Jobst compression stockings and arm sleeves should feel snug at first. It will take a few days to adjust to the pressure.

Before you put on your stocking or sleeve review the Helpful Hints and Donning Methods.

Compression garments are easier to put on when you first get out of bed, before swelling occurs.

Helpful Hints
Skin should be dry
Applying a thin layer of cornstarch or powder will help the stockings or sleeve slide over your skin
Remove your rings and jewelry that can damage your garment
Wear rubber or vinyl gloves to prevent fingernails from damaging the fabric
The gloves also help provide grip to distribute the fabric more easily
Avoid rolling, gathering or bunching the fabric, as this will only increase the pressure- like creating a super rubber band
Apply moisturizer to your legs or arm in the evening rather than just before putting on your stocking or sleeve
