Remember: "TEDs are for Beds"

Anti-embolism stockings, or TED hose, are intended for non-ambulatory patients. This means that the individual is not mobile, lying flat on a bed. TED hose are virtually ineffective for an individual who is walking, standing and sitting. Compression stockings are made especially for individuals who are mobile and are much more effective than TED hose.
