compression stocking donning aid


Name: Hank

Event: TOM @ University



Hank is a Communication Access Assessor at Scope. In 1985 he suffered from an acute asthma attack, causing an acquired brain injury (ABI) as well as Action Myoclonus, a condition characterised by muscular jerking induced by voluntary movement. Hank’s ABI has impacted his speech and mobility. Hank finds it extremely difficult to put on compression / support stockings without assistance and wishes to do so independently. 


The students have worked with Hank and his wife to develop a device that works with existing compression sock assistive devices to enable Hank in rolling his own compression socks.
