Covidien TED Black Knee Length Anti-Embolism Stockings for Continuing Care

Because the risk of developing thromboembolic diseases like deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE) can continue for up to six weeks after being discharged from hospital, it's vital that you can properly reduce the risk of these potentially fatal events occurring.

The Covidien TED Black Knee Length Anti-Embolism Stockings for Continuing Care have been developed to reduce the risk of thromboembolic diseases developing in recuperating patients though a graduated compression pattern, helping increase blood flow rates to prevent blood clots forming in the leg.

What's Included?

Each purchase of the Covidien TED Stockings includes a pair of anti-embolism stockings.

Which Size of Covidien TED Anti-Embolism Stockings Should I Choose?

The first thing that you will have to do when purchasing your Anti-Embolism Stockings is to select the correct size. You can do this by completing the following steps and looking at the table below:

  1. Measure your calf at its thickest part.
  2. Measure the distance from the bend of your knee to the bottom of your heel behind your leg.
  3. Make sure that the measurements are completed while standing (someone else can help if necessary).
  4. Match your measurements to the table below.
Size Calf Circumference Length
Small Regular <12 inches (<30.5cm) <16 inches (<40.6cm)
Small Long >16 inches (>40.6cm)
Medium Regular

12 inches - 15 inches
(30.5cm - 38.1cm)

Medium Long >17 inches (>43.2cm)
Large Regular 15 inches - 17.5 inches

Clinically Proven to Reduce Thromboembolic Diseases

TED stockings are the only anti-embolism stockings which have been clinically proven to reduce the risk of thromboembolic disease, where blood clots (which most commonly form in the leg) break free. From there they can travel to the lungs where they obstruct the pulmonary arteries, restricting blood flow.

To effectively reduce the risk of clots developing, the stockings utilise a graduated compression pattern to encourage blood to quickly move through and back up the leg, helping to reduce the chance of blood clots forming in the leg and reducing the risk of fatal pulmonary embolisms.

Designed for Comfort

As well as being highly effective, the stockings are also incredibly comfortable to wear. All Covidien TED continuing care stockings are latex free, reducing the risk of allergic reactions, and also feature a closed toe, making them feel comfortable and natural on your feet.

What Level of Compression do the TED Stockings Provide?

The Anti-Embolism Stockings for Continuing Care feature different levels of compression on various parts of the leg. This is as follows:

  • Upper thigh: 8mmHg
  • Lower thigh: 10mmHg
  • Popliteal: 8mmHg
  • Calf: 14mmHg
  • Ankle: 18mmHg

Bought to supplement the 2 pairs of post-op hospital issue stockings. Size perfect (choice based on hospital measurement) and so far lasting well. Closed toe much more comfortable than open.

What the doctor ordered.

These were almost literally what the doctor ordered. I was discharged from the Nuffield Hospital with two pairs after TKR and luckily mine had the supplier name and size on them. I immediately bought two more pairs and they were great. Very comfortable and easy to use.
