Covidien TED White Thigh Length Anti-Embolism Stockings for Continuing Care
Because the risk of thromboembolic diseases like deep vein thrombosis (DVT) or pulmonary embolism (PE) developing 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 White Thigh 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 that helps increase blood flow rates to prevent blood clots forming in the leg.
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. This is where blood clots (which most commonly form in the leg) break free and 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. This helps to reduce the chance of blood clots forming in the leg, reducing the risk of fatal pulmonary embolisms.
Designed for Comfort
As the stockings have been designed for recuperating patients, they are incredibly comfortable to wear. All Covidien TED continuing care stockings are latex free, reducing the risk of allergic reactions, and he stockings also feature a closed toe to make them feel comfortable and natural on your feet.
Please note that while the image above shows multiple coloured stockings, these TED stockings are supplied in White.
