TED Hose

  • TED Hose is prescribed to patients who are non-ambulatory, meaning they are not up and moving around on their own
  • Risk of a blood clot developing in the legs of these people is a main concern for health care providers, as clots can break free and travel through the bloodstream to the lungs, causing a pulmonary embolism
  • TED hose reduces the risk by administering pressure on the lower part of the leg and feet, with the most compression occurring at the calf muscle

Compression Socks

  • Compression socks are best suited to patients who are able to move around
  • Generally they can be used by patients with circulatory problems such as venous insufficiency, lymphedema and varicose veins
  • Compression socks help keep blood from pooling in the ankles, where the pressure is the greatest
  • Can be worn for up to six months or more
