T.E.D Covidien Stockings apply the clinically-proven graduated pressure pattern of 18mmHg at the ankle, 14mmHg at the calf and 8mmHg at the popliteal. It is important to measure the patient’s leg size to assure that the appropriate pressure pattern is applied.
T.E.D Covidien Stockings are clinically proven to reduce the incidence of DVT up to 50% and to promote increased blood flow velocity in the legs 138% of baseline by compression of the deep venous system. They have also been clinically proven to prevent the damaging effects of venous distension that occurs during surgery and hospitalization.
Not all anti-embolism stockings have been clinically shown to provide the same protection as T.E.D Convidien Stockings, which are recognizable by the T.E.D. logo clearly visible on the foot.
The T.E.D Covidien Stockings Size G fit calf size 17.5 – 20″ (44.5 – 51cm), and the length is <18″ (46cm). These are knee length stockings.
