Compression Socks vs Ted Hose
The main difference between compression socks and TED (thromboembolic deterrent) hose are that TED hose can be made available to those that are non-ambulatory, or not able to get around on their own. The main risk would be the possibility of developing blood clots in the leg area, TED hose can help to reduce this risk by the application of pressure in the lower leg and foot. Compression socks are usually used by people that are more able to move around and who are diagnosed with circulatory problems such as lymphedema or varicose veins.
