About Us


My Name is Linda Sherman, and I want to tell you about the best device for compression stockings ever invented: a device that will not only get compression stockings ON but also get them OFF. I discovered the Original Doff N’ Donner at the exact time that it was introduced to the market in May 2012. When I saw how well this device worked, I asked the inventor Ray Fikes if I could become a distributor for it in the United States, and the rest is history.

To date there have been tens of thousands of Doff N’ Donner’s sold, and this device (along with it’s counterpart the Cone Applicator) is becoming a household word for patients and caregivers who deal with the struggles around donning (applying) and doffing (removing) compression stockings. The Doff N’ Donner method (Doff N’ Donner + Cone Applicator) is different from any other on the market; not only because its patented design is truly unique and innovative, but also because it actually works; and it accomplishes both donning and doffing! No other compression stocking aid can do this, and that is the main reason that it costs a little more. However the simple truth is this: Once you learn and experience the ease of the Doff N’ Donner method, you will never go back!

    WONDERFUL invention! They have this at my dr. office and it makes putting support hose on so much easier. Takes a few times to get used to the function but once you do, it saves a lot of struggling to get these things on. My husband helps me put them on when home but I can also manage by myself. There are lots of videos on this and helpful hints on youtube, too. Great package deal, too.

    Finally, an easy helpful tool!

    After having a surgery for a left wrist fracture after a fall then carpal tunnel surgery due to the trauma on the nerve, I thought I would never have the strength to be able to get my compression hose on again. I have lower leg venous insufficiency in both legs and needed to wear them and due to those surgeries had not for almost a year and a half. My legs were not in good shape and I happened to see this product demonstrated on YouTube. I am so thankful that I did. This product was the answer. To me it was a very short learning experience about the third time they were on in no time with no problems. By the way, this is for those of you that have a wider calf like me. It does work for me it doesn't go all the way to my knee but almost and after it gets over the heel and halfway up the leg the rest is quite easy and it comes off just as easy. This would be so helpful for someone assisting also. I wanted to mention that I use this with hose with the silicon band.

    Highly recommend!

    I just had hip replacement surgery and this has been invaluable when it comes to my husband helping me with my compression stockings. He's going back to work next week and I'm thinking about buying the chute and runway to help me put them on myself. This is a very clever design and worth the money.

    The doff and donner has made life so much easier for me.

    It only took a few tries before I got the hang of it and was able

    to easily put on and take off my compression stockings.

    Genius invention

  • " I have tried every device I could get my hand on for putting on or removing compression garments in the last 6 years. The Doff N Donner has changed how we teach donning and doffing. It is now the first device we try and for most of our patients it is the device they like to use."

  • I just wanted to write and let you know that we constantly have patients commenting in regard to how wonderful your product is! We treat many RN's who have never seen anything like the Doff n' Donner and love it as well. I have always given your informational handout whenever anyone expresses interest.

    I will tell you that your product has SO greatly improved our work environment!!! We have 3 procedure days/week and have 2 procedure room running simultaneously. Employees used to leave physically exhausted and often with low back pain - mainly from trying to wrangle compression stockings onto patients all day. We have tried using the "Butler" which was not much improvement over using sheer brute strength. Getting compression stockings on now is a breeze (relatively speaking).

    I don't know if you have set up Exhibitor booths at vein conferences in the past, but if not, I think you would do very well. The U.S. (via the American College of Phlebology) has been chosen to host the World Meeting of the International Union of Phlebology for the first time ever - if it is too late to get a booth there, I am guessing that marketing directly to all of the conference attendees would be enormously beneficial.


  • I have been incorporating the Doff N’ Donner in my compression training programs the last few months and the response has been fantastic! The people who attend my class are from diverse backgroundsDME/HME owners and staff, medical personnel (MA’s, CNA’s, patient caregivers), other educators, pharmacy techs and pharmacists, podiatrists and even end users. A common complaint that all of them come to the class with is that their patients/clients struggle with donning. In all of my classes it has been determined that compliance of Compression Hosiery is very much dependent on people getting them on. “If only there was a genuinely easy to use appliance to help them, I think it would make a huge difference” is a statement I have heard over and over. Once I show them the Doff N’ Donner and how to use it they are in awe. Then I give them the opportunity to don themselves and each other with it as well as other donning aides and the feedback always WOW! Immediately they can think of several patients they want to use it with. They want one for the office/showroom/nursing unit/etc. Everyone I have shown it to sees it as a real game-changer for Compression wearers and their caregivers, and I totally agree.

  • Just wanted to let you know that we really like the Doff N' Donner. A patient's wife had tried everything and nothing had worked for her so she was very skeptical. And she LOVES it and was going to order one. Also our therapy department will order 2 more and one more for nursing. Even the docs had a fun time playing with it. Monday I have a conference call with other hospitals in our region, and we'll discuss your Doff N' Donner as well...just thought you would like to know. Nicolien
