|Stockings are not put on patient's leg like ordinary hosiery. If the stockings are gathered together in the typical "donut" fashion, the effect of the elastic material is multiplied many times and makes application difficult. By following these basic steps, T.E.D. Stockings are easily applied.|
CAUTION: Do not under any circumstances, turn down top of stockings. Do not cover any portion of the knee.
|5. Patients should be instructed as to proper positioning of stocking to insure that the patient will not reposition the stockings incorrectly.|
