In brief: TED hose

Thrombo embolism deterrent stockings are made to be worn over night and have a low enough pressure that they can be worn safely.

It can be safe to wear the stockings overnight. There are many compression wraps in the wound care field that stay on for up to a week at a time, so wearing a stocking overnight is a possibility.
