If otherwise not prescribed by your physician, it is recommended to wear the compression stockings all day long.

If you are wearing compression products for the first time, you should gradually accommodate your body to the compression stockings: at first wear them for shorter, than for longer and longer periods. The ‘accommodation’ time can last from one-two days until one-two weeks. This is necessary because in the first period of wearing compression stockings the serious pressure may cause an unpleasant feeling, as well as the impression as if the stocking or tight were ‘too tight’.

Because stockings are made of a fine thread, in order to avoid mechanic deterioration, pull stocking on and off with due care. We recommend using rubber gloves when pulling stockings on or off.

Pull-on recommendation for stockings

If you buy an open toes AF, AG or AM product, in the package you will find a green pull on slipper.
