Whether you travel by plane, train or automobile, if you are on a trip that lasts more than a few hours in cramped conditions, it can be extremely uncomfortable. But, did you know that it could also be dangerous, even life-threatening?
Travel Thrombosis, Economy Class Syndrome and Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) are all names for the condition that results from a blood clot developing in the legs during long periods of travel. Usually when you travel, you are seated for extended periods of time. This does not allow you to stretch or exercise your leg muscles. These muscles are responsible for helping the blood flow back to your heart. As you continue to sit, and as the hours of inactivity add up, your circulation slows down, and blood clots may develop.
So, how can you reduce your risk of travel-induced blood clots? Wear Kendall Travel Socks whenever you're on the go, and you'll benefit from improved circulation, reduced leg swelling and proven protection against potentially fatal Travel Thrombosis.
The Travel Sock is designed and manufactured by Tyco Healthcare/Kendall, the company that designed and manufacture the leading compression stocking for the prevention of Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) in hospital patients, the T.E.D. Anti-Embolism Stocking. This means the Travel Sock has benefited from over 50 years of knowledge and expertise in DVT prevention.
