As recently noted by USA Today, blood clots while traveling can be very dangerous. And with people taking long flights overseas, it’s even more important to take preventative measures.
Travelsox, our Italian-made compression socks are our hands-down favorites. Not only do they have the firmest and most comfortable compression we’ve found, but they have a stylish look that we love. Their gradual compression stimulates blood flow in the legs and that increased circulation reduces swelling and cuts down on the odds of a blood clot forming. The elastic at the thigh is the most comfortable we’ve found, and the smooth toe seam is an added bonus.
What else can you do? According to Jack Hirsh in the article from USA Today, you can “Drink water, a glass every couple of hours, and flex your calf muscles against the foot rest if you can’t get up and walk around. Do not drink coffee or alcohol, because they dehydrate you.”
Don’t take any chances on your next flight – a pair of Travel Compression Socks could save you from a lot of pain or could even save your life. Visit our website to learn more or purchase a pair.
