Lauren: This is Natalie Calm, age 19, Type 1 Diabetic and just had her left hip replaced. I'm going to be showing her the ins and outs of TED Hose, why do you use them and how to put them on so that when she goes back home, she can increase the circulation in her legs and decrease the edema that she will experience.
Lauren: Hi Natalie, I'm Lauren. I'm going to be your nurse and I'm going to teach you the ins and outs of TED Hose.
Lauren: What I want you to do is follow what I'm doing and I'm going to have you put them on to your hand. Okay?
Lauren: This will go on your legs and go up to your knees to decrease your risk of clots due to the surgery and immobility of surgery and also the edema that you will experience because you're Type 1 Diabetic. We want to put our hands inside and find this little area of the square, the reinforced square, on your TED Hose. Grab that and then pull your TED Hose inside out. Now that is going to go on your heel. Then put them on, enforcing, get to your heel. And then pull these back up over to your heel. Now the main thing to remember when putting on a TED Hose is that they will be a little tight and a little uncomfortable but you need to get them smooth. You don’t want any wrinkles within the TED Hose. Then pull them up to the knee. Now see, smooth. This will increase your circulation from your feet up, decrease the risk of clot and also decrease your edema.
Natalie: Good to know.

- Compression Hose controls fluid buildup in legs
Very well made, durable and easily laundered. (Don't use bleach! It destroys the elastic!) Havier denier than sheer, plain support hose. Regular support hose will not remedy the swelling when its on the scale I had suffered. I've been battling fluid retention in my legs (from the knee down) for quite a long time. I'd tried the no salt in food and keeping feet up thing, but it wasn't working. It got so bad, my legs began to "weep" the fluid through the skin. Waking at night to wet sheets as if I poured a pan of water on the linens! My legs developed blister like ulcers, too. With the help of a high dose cortizone cream, the ulcers healed, but the swelling wouldn't go down----that is, until I purchased these stockings! I wear them daily (without fail) and remove them at night. Thank you, TEDS, for making these Godsend stockings.
- I hoped they would last longer
I bought 4 pair of knee highs and pair of thigh high open toe TED hose about 1 month ago. I thought they would be more durable than they are now. I wear them all day. They seem to be snagging at the front where my jeans are at my ankles. I don't know if I would buy them again.
- Very good quality
These compression stockings are very good. They fit my husband's legs very well.
- My wife had to remove stocking and never put it back on.
Measurement was correct according to your guidelines.A great deal of difficulty getting the stocking on(only for one leg) and it created sich a deep mark on the leg with so much discomfort she had to,with difficulty, remove it and would not wear it again.Her legs are not fat and the measurement was to your scale.Itvwas a waste.
- Great Fit and compression
I really liked this product and would recommend it to anyone!
- Avoided the usual blood clots.
After my joint replacement surgery, I was prescribed by the doctor to wear this on my leg. The compression is good and I feel that my blood circulation is normal. I was advised to wear it for 6 months, however I was allowed to remove it once a day so that I can take a bath. It is also washable which is a plus factor.
- The best friend for running!!
Running is great exercise though, it could be dangerous sometimes. I sprained my ankle and my doc told me to use this. It gives me great support. I felt less pain and tired which makes me run more. It's great!
- Good ventilation
I know some stuff like this can cause you unpleasant feeling blocking skin from breathing. It is open-toe which enables your feet to breathe! You can protect your feet while making them breathe. Isn't it great? So awesome! Thank you!
- ted hose
these are good, but I should have purchased the closed-toe kind, because these feel lumpy in my shoes around the toe opening
- All that I expected
Great product and it and the delivery time were beyond expectations
- TED Hose Knee High Compression Stockings Ant-Embolism Open Toe
I purchased the stockings for my husband who had surgery on his knee. He has diabetes, and his leg swelled up to twice it's size. I was happy to be able to find a stocking that I was able to get on his leg. The quality is very good, also.
- TED Hose Knee High Compression Stockings Ant-Embolism Open Toe
Excellent product. Very happy wih the quality and service.
- Don't expect customer service to respond.
I ordered almost $100 dollars of compression stockings which did not fit; that's my bad because I've never ordered them before and guessed at the size. I emailed Customer Service to ask if I could exchange them, and no one bothered to respond to my inquiry. First and last time I order from this company. I hope Goodwill gives them to someone who can use them! (I gave them away since I had no use for them: bummer!)
excellent product, fast shipping
Great product. Used after Achilles Tendon Surgery
