Are you the type of person who gets on a flight and immediately dreads the thought of swollen ankles and legs before the plane even takes off? Or someone who hates the feeling of 'pins and needles' as you wriggle around trying to still look comfortable as the random passenger next to you gives you weird looks?
I was the wriggly, uncomfortable person on planes until I invested in something that changed my outlook on flying for good; Flight Socks.
Flight Socks (commonly known as compression stockings) apply gentle pressure to your legs which then help the veins and muscles in your leg to move blood more efficiently which prevents swollen ankles and tired legs. It's an affordable way to stay comfortable during your flight and not worry about more serious issues such as Deep Vein Thrombosis. DVT is when a blood clot develops in a deep leg vein - and yes, it is as scary as it sounds. Not only would you end up with
When you travel by air, the cramped conditions, reduced air pressure and mild dehydration can all make this worse. A more serious circulation problem is deep vein thrombosis (DVT). This is when a blood clot develops in a deep leg vein; leaving you with a very inflamed looking leg and a pretty hefty medical bill in your international destination.
We have just starting stocking TRAVENO by Sigvaris compression socks and stockings in store. TRAVENO is medically tested and is proven to reduce swelling and the risk of thrombosis on long haul flights. We take your measurements in the comfort of one of our lovely consult rooms and send them off to the company to find the perfect fit and style for you. They come in different styles, strengths, and sizes; they even cater to our wider foot and calved customers. We do hold common sizes in store so you will either walk out of the store with the socks in your hand or they will take around 3 working days to get to us via order.
We're wanting to make this experience as easy and comfortable for you as possible; we're here to ensure you have a fantastic holiday!
