T.E.D. anti-embolism stockings are clinically proven to reduce the incidence of Deep Vein Thrombosis by up to 50% and to promote increased blood flow velocity in the legs by 138% of baseline by compression of the deep venous system.

T.E.D. anti-embolism stockings have also been clinically proven to prevent the damaging effects of venous distension that occurs during surgery and hospitalization. T.E.D. anti-embolism stockings apply the clinically-proven graduated pressure pattern of 18mmHg at the ankle, 14mmHg at the calf, 8mmHg at the popliteal artery(close to the patella joint), 10mmHg at the lower thigh and 8mmHg at the upper thigh.

It is important to measure the patients leg size to assure that the appropriate pressure pattern is applied.

Compression Stockings

Compression stockings are a specialized hosiery designed to help prevent the occurrence of, and guard against further progression of, venous disorders such as edema, phlebitis and thrombosis. Compression stockings are elastic garments worn around the leg, compressing the limb. This reduces the diameter of distended veins and increases venous blood flow velocity and valve effectiveness. Compression therapy helps decrease venous pressure, prevents venous stasis and impairments of venous walls, and relieves heavy and aching legs.

Knee-high compression stockings are used not only to help increase circulation, but also to help prevent the formation of blood clots in the lower legs. They also aid in the treatment of ulcers of the lower legs.

Unlike traditional dress or athletic stockings and socks, compression stockings use stronger elastics to create significant pressure on the legs, ankles and feet. Compression stockings are tightest at the ankles and gradually become less constrictive toward the knees and thighs. By compressing the surface veins, arteries and muscles, they force circulating blood through narrower channels. As a result, the arterial pressure is increased, which causes more blood to return to the heart and less blood to pool in the feet.
