Also known as TED hose, short for thromboembolism-deterrent hose, they are used to support the venous and lymphatic drainage of the leg. They are low cost temporary solutions commonly used for patients in nursing homes and post-surgery to prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT). Similar to gradient compression stockings, anti-embolism stockings deliver an equal amount of compression at the ankle and the upper leg. This compression, when combined with the muscle pump effect of the calf, helps in circulation of blood and lymph fluid through the legs (in non-ambulatory patients). Basically the main purpose of anti-embolism stockings is to maintain normal venous return in bedridden patients. Today, even the sports industry has increased the use of compression wear. Various garments have been developed which improve the efficiency of muscles by stabilizing the muscles and improving circulation/ lactic acid removal in the body. Today, compression stockings are available in a great range of opacities, colors, styles and sizes, making them virtually unrecognizable from regular hosiery or stockings we use.
