Udder supports?

You know how when you bite your lip or the inside of your cheek you tend to bite that same place a couple more times before it heals?

Well, we've got a cow with that problem, only she's not biting her lip, she's stepping a teat. She stepped on the same teat six times during her last lactation. She's just fresh again now. Her teat healed nicely during her time off and we'd like to keep it that way.

Does anyone have experience with udder supports? Do they help prevent squashed teats? Any other ideas?
