Sitting still in a cramped position for long periods of time, e.g. on aircraft, long car rides, bus or rail is unhealthy and may even be dangerous. The blood in the legs grows thicker. It becomes congested and can form small clots: so-called thrombosis. This is often referred to as "Economy Class Syndrome".
Mediven Travel Socks exert gentle pressure to promote the flow of blood back to the heart and stops the legs swelling. This has been proven to reduce the risk of thrombosis.
How does Mediven Travel work? Mediven travel exerts accurately dosed and defined pressure on the tissues of the calf, which is furthest from the heart. The pressure diminishes evenly from the foot upwards to the knee. This dosed compression reduces the diameter of the veins, which in turn accelerates the flow of blood back toward the heart. The blood can no longer coagulate so easily. Every small movement you make while wearing Mediven travel also reinforces the "pump effect" of the calf muscles, which is also helped by the stocking's mode of action.
