Travel socks have been proven to reduce the risk of developing a DVT (deep vein thrombosis) or blood clot in the leg which can turn into a life-threatening pulmonary embolism. They also prevent your legs and feet from swelling due to sitting in a confined space for an extended period of time. If you have ever taken your shoes off at the beginning of a long-haul flight, you know how difficult it can be to put them back on when you land. If you keep your shoes on, you’ve felt how tight they become. Compression travel socks will help prevent this problem.
The improved circulation also alleviates some of the aches and pains in your legs associated with sitting for a long time.
Jobst Travel Socks have a graduated compression of 15-20mmHg. Graduated means the compression is higher at the ankle, and gradually decreases up the leg. This is one of the ways the stocking helps your circulatory system push blood from the lower extremities back to your heart. This level of compression is considered moderate and is the recommended level of compression for travel, assuming you don’t have any other venous issues.
If you prefer a fabric other than cotton, BrightLife Direct has a large selections of other fabrics and styles to choose from. If your summer vacation plans include traveling for more than 3-4 hours, don’t forget to wear your travel socks.
