T.E.D Covidien Stockings apply the clinically-proven graduated pressure pattern of 18mmHg at the ankle, 14mmHg at the calf, 8mmHg at the popliteal, 10mmHg at the lower thigh and 8mmHg at the upper thigh. 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 N fit thigh size 25 – 32″ (63.5cm to 81cm), calf size 17.5 – 21.5″ (44.5 – 54.6cm) and the length is <29″ (74cm). These are thigh length stockings.
