Are you wondering why TED hose are called TEDs?
The manufacturer tells us that "T.E.D. is our trademarked, brand name. It does not officially stand for anything."
However, we hear from a physician: Although the manufacturer has forgotten it, T.E.D. stands for ThromboEmbolic Disease. The stockings were invented to prevent it.
Please be certain of your selection as TED hose may not be returned under any circumstance.
