The client found that removing his support stockings was almost impossible without assistance as he was unable to roll them down and pull them off unaided. The stockings had to be removed at night so the client was dependent on a carer to assist his going to bed.
This simple solution involves linking suspender-type clips on the stockings with cords and a simple pulley system. This is an uncomplicated, lightweight and readily portable device that can easily be operated by the client. Anchoring the pulley block under the bottom of a door, fastening the clips to his stockings and gently pulling the cord he smoothly removes his support stockings.
The client does not now need a carer’s assistance at bed time.
