Whether you are travelling by plane, train or car, sitting still for too long can slow down the circulation in your lower legs. This can cause problems associated with poor circulation such as tired and aching legs, swollen ankles and even lead to more serious problems such as Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT).
People on long flights are particularly at risk of DVT so Scholl has developed these special Flight Socks. Tighter at the ankles, they gradually ease off as they go up your calf giving graduated compression that helps push the blood up your legs and back to the heart. These socks offer a Compression Factor of 14-17 and are clinically proven to help blood flow, ensure correct circulation and reduce the risk of DVT. You’ll also find that they alleviate that heavy aching feeling in your lower legs.
Great for those that have to endure long journeys or even if you find yourself sitting at a desk for long periods of time, they will feel tighter on your leg than normal socks but they are still comfortable enough to wear all day. Knitted with a very fine rib, they look just like ordinary socks and are suitable for both men and women.
Improve your circulation and reduce the risk of suffering DVT on long flights with these clinically proven Flight Socks from Scholl.
