The Magnide has been specifically designed to alleviate the problems experienced when donning compression stockings and tights with a closed toe. The Magnide is made from smooth material, which has been treated with a special coating. These qualities create a smooth aid that reduces friction significantly. The friction reduction of the Magnide helps minimize the physical strain otherwise experienced by caregivers and patients. In turn, this has a positive effect on the therapy compliance of patients. Also, with clear and simple instructions-for-use, patients can enjoy the freedom and convenience of independently donning compression hosiery for a long time.
