Fitting T.E.D. stockings:
Proper sizing and application must be assured.
Applying T.E.D. stockings:
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.
T.E.D. Anti-embolism stockings are designed to speed blood flow with graduated compression but are different from support stockings or compression hose in that they are used for non-ambulatory convalescing persons to prevent blood clots.
If proven efficacy in an anti-embolism stocking is important to you, be aware that not all stockings are the same. Only the T.E.D. Anti-Embolism Stocking
has been clinically proven
* to prevent DVT in over 14,000 patients.
Please seek your physician's advice in the use of compression hosiery.
CAUTION: Federal (U.S.A.) law restricts this device to sale by or on the order of a physician.
