Reduce the risk of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) with long-haul travel.
- Flight socks provide a graduated compression that aids in the prevention of DVT on long-haul journeys and keeps you feeling healthier and more comfortable on your journey.
During long trips, it may help to: Walk up and down the aisle every hour. Flex and stretch your feet to encourage blood flow to your calves. Wear loose and comfortable clothing. Drink plenty of fluids and avoid alcohol.
How the socks work
The socks apply a gentle pressure from the ankle to the top of the calf. They assist with blood flow around the body by directing it toward the heart, aiding in body circulation. Increased circulation helps reduce the build up of excess fluid preventing tired, swollen legs aching during your travel.
