 SIGVARIS GROUP formed in Switzerland, and is 100% family-owned since it was founded in 1864. Originally, SIGVARIS GROUP produced "rubber-elastic textiles" and sold this both in Switzerland and abroad. That was until 1958, when SIGVARIS GROUP and  phlebologist Dr. Karl Sigg, developed  a medical compression stocking to improve venous function and relieve venous-related conditions.

SIGVARIS GROUP aim to keep thinking forward, by helping patients with  venous disorders, lymphoedema and lipoedema in making their lives as restriction-free as possible. SIGVARIS GROUP also believe that the benefits of compression therapy in everyday life, at work, on long-distance trips, and during sports should be made available to a health-conscious audience.

Sigvaris Melany Donning & Doffing Aid

A compression hosiery applicator, also known as a compression stocking applicator or a donning aid is a device designed to assist individuals in putting on compression stockings or hosiery.

Compression and support stockings can be challenging to put on, especially for individuals with limited mobility, arthritis, or dexterity issues.

By using an applicator you can simplify the process of wearing your compression hosiery, removing the need for excessive bending, twisting or stretching, increasing convenience and comfortability for the user.

Additionally, there are also doffing aids which aid in the removal of compression garments. Some of the devices we sell at Patient Choice Direct are created with the intent purpose of easing both the donning and doffing of hosiery.

The Sigvaris Melany has been produced by SIGVARIS GROUP to facilitate the donning and removal of compression stockings to promote treatment compliance.
