INSTRUCTIONS FOR USE
To wear Albert – André socks, proceed as with normal socks but without rolling them.
Turn the sock upside down, then position the heel and pull the sock with your hands, stretching it towards the ankle, leg and depending on the length, towards the thigh and groin area. If the sock will be distributed correctly without wrinkles and creases, compression will be optimal.
To help you apply your socks more easily while dressing (for compression stockings classes 2 and 3), we recommend that you wear the latex gloves enclosed in the package.
For the open toes models, first apply the silk sleeve supplied with the product to the foot, which facilitates the sliding of the compression stocking.
Remove the silk sleeve off the leg, for the open toes stockings, once you’ve put them on. It is advisable to put the socks on in the morning, when the legs are less swollen. Apply silicone lotion and talcum powder on the skin to make it easier for the socks to slide down the lower limb. Contact your specialist if your toes feel numb or if the skin begins to change color while wearing the compression stockings.
