Fitting FUTURO Stockings: 1. Measure around the circumference of calf at the widest point to determine 'size.' 2. Measure distance from bend of knee to bottom of heel (in standing position, if possible) to determine 'length.' FUTURO STOCKING PRECAUTIONS: Proper sizing and application must be assured. Large Regular: Calf circumference (inches): 15 - 17-1/2. Length (inches): 13-1/2 - 18. 1. Insert hand into heel pocket of stocking. Turn stocking inside out by grasping center of heel pocket. 2. Position stocking over foot and heel, carefully centering heel in heel pocket. 3. Gently pull stocking up and over ankle and calf, working up to the final location. Note that the top of the stocking should be about 1 to 2 inches below bottom of kneecap. If any excess material exists, smooth out. Care: To ensure stockings last as long as possible, launder after every three days of use. Keep the stockings free from substances like ointments, oils and lanolin which could deteriorate elastic. Hand wash with mild soap in warm (not hot) water. Rinse well until water is clear (do not wring or twist out) and air dry. Do not bleach, tumble dry, dry clean or iron.

If discomfort or pain results, persists or increases, discontinue use and consult your physician. Do not under any circumstances turn down top of stockings; do not cover any portion of the knee.
