"FlightSocks.info" flight socks use a clinically proven graduated compression system to improve blood flow.
For many years this condition has been known to doctors and until recently it was believed that it only affected people of advanced years. It has now been proven that it can occur at any age regardless of physical fitness.
D.V.T's There is growing evidence that passengers on long-haul flights are at increased risk from developing potentially life-threatening deep vein thrombosis – DVT (blood clots).
Muscles and joints that become physically bored will feel tired, stiff and even ache due to inactivity. Sitting still for hours also inhibits poor circulation, and when the circulation of blood through your arteries and veins slows down, muscles feel weaker and tired.
Everyone is at risk, including those with no previous history of leg swelling (oedema). However, those at highest risk are:
* People over 40 years of age
* People over six feet tall, or under five feet tall
* People with varicose veins
* People with heart disease
* People suffering from cancer
* Those with a history of blood clots
* Those who have recently undergone surgery
* Those who have had recent leg injuries
* Women taking the contraceptive pill
