World Wide Nets Recommendations: Research has shown passengers on a long haul flight are at risk of deep vein thrombosis.
When remaining still for a long time, the lack of movement of the legs means blood can begin to pool in your feet. Over time, this blood can begin to clot and then if that blood moves to vital organs it can cause serious health problems or even death.
The use of Lifesystems graduated compression flight socks can improve the circulation, relieve discomfort and help to prevent circulatory problems. Compression socks apply graduated pressure to the legs and ankles, narrowing the blood flow channels in the ankles and forcing more blood to the heart. In this way, compression socks reduce the risk of circulatory problems. Because of the risk of deep vein thrombosis, flight socks are sometimes called 'DVT' stockings'
It is important that the correct size DVT stockings are worn. Ensure that you measure yourself using this guide before use.
