Ezy As Pressure Stocking Applicator

About the solution

Barry Sr had a serious leg damage in a motorcycle accident when he was 18 years old.

He had knee replacement surgery, and the method of fitting the compression stocking caused tremendous pain. It would take him up to 30 minutes to apply and quite often he’d just give up and not wear the compression stocking as the pain involved applying it was just too much. More recently he had to use compression stockings for the treatment of an ulcer, due to poor circulation in his leg. He had tried other applicators on the market without success. Barry Snr knew he wouldn’t be able to go through all that pain again so he went about creating something that would take the pain out of application.

Barry presented Ezy As Pressure Stocking Applicator in the Australian television show, New Inventors. It reduces the effort and pain when applying compression garments to both arms and legs. It is designed to be used by patients on their own or by caregivers who are unable to apply their own stockings.
