What are TED hose?

TED hose are stockings that help prevent blood clots and swelling in your legs. You may need these stockings if you have had surgery or you cannot get out of bed. You may also need them if you are elderly or have a history of blood clots. Healthcare providers will measure your legs to make sure the stockings fit properly. They will teach you and anyone who takes care of you how to put the stockings on.
