Our MetroMedicalOnline Certified Fitters recommend that donning gloves always be worn when applying your compression garments. These gloves have a gripping texture that makes it considerably easier to put on compression armsleeves. Donning gloves also help to prevent tearing, snagging or putting a nail or finger through the sleeve.
While we are on the subject of donning, many of our customers love Alps Fitting lotion. ALPS 100% Silicone Fitting Lotion Skin Conditioner for Sensitive Skin leaves a smooth, silky feel to sensitive skin that is chapped and dry. When used before putting on stockings, ALPS fitting lotion helps prevent snags and facilitates donning of compression garments.
