THE HISTORY OF THE EZY-AS™ COMPRESSION STOCKING APPLICATOR
Originally invented by Mr. Barry Hildebrandt the Ezy-As business was formed in July 2006 with the intention of manufacturing and marketing this unique stocking aid.
This goal was achieved within 12 months, and we were able to share the information we had gathered about this truly remarkable device.
Ezy-As is now owned and operated by Stephen Dickins and Tim Jarrott, healthcare practitioners who understand the needs of patients and clinicians. The product is proudly manufactured in Melbourne, Australia and distributed around the world.
INSPIRATION BEHIND THE EZY-AS
Words from Barry Hildebrandt Snr.
“I wish I had my Ezy-As years ago when I had my knee replaced. Now, I use my applicator every time I fit my compression stocking for the treatment of an Ulcer.
Other applicators just weren’t suitable or practical for me to use given the fact I have a fused ankle. This is why I decided to make one which would suit me.
I designed it to be compact, so I can easily drop it in a small bag and take it with me on the trips to the doctors or the hospital.
Now with less effort and pain I can safely say I have no excuse for not wearing my stocking. I wouldn’t try fitting one without the Ezy-As now.
I hope my invention will help other people as it has helped me.”
