Make your life easier with
Arion Slide Solutions!
The specialist for donning and doffing aids for medical compression garments
Our mission: To make your life easier - every day and in every situation
How to help medical compression wearers and their caregivers solve the daily struggle of putting on compression stockings? How to help patients become more independent? It became the ambition of Arion’s CEO Erik Joosten to find solutions to face those challenges raised by compression therapy.
He wanted to give compression wearers freedom and dignity back while bringing a smile onto their faces. That’s why Arion developed the first textile donning aid for medical compression stockings in 1994. It resulted in a solution and a patented product,
“Easy-Slide”, which is convenient, easy to use, and makes compression therapy easier every day, whatever the wearer’s condition is, which compression garments they use, and no matter if he or she is assisted by a caregiver or not.
Easy-Slide started to change compression wearer’s life
It wasn’t easy to introduce the first textile donning aid for medical compression garments that wasn’t covered by any health insurance. While initially facing a lot of resistance from the healthcare industry, the passion to change people’s lives kept Erik going.
He still remembers the heartbreaking postcard he received from Emily D. in 1994, mentioning: “Thanks to Easy-Slide I have my freedom back. Because now I can put on my compression stockings by myself. You are changing my life for the better!”
This is exactly what Arion stands for with its Slide Solutions products: making a positive impact that can change people’s lives.
Thanks to Easy-Slide I have my freedom back. […]
You are changing my life for the better!
