For some people long haul flights or regular flights in general are a main part of business or even personal life, and with this comes the risk of developing DVT (Deep vein thrombosis). Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is a blood clot that forms in the deep veins of the leg. Deep vein thrombosis in the thigh carries a risk of pulmonary embolism. This is when the clot that was formed in your leg, moves from your leg and into your pulmonary artery and also the lungs, and if large enough can even eventually cause death.
The symptoms of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) may include pain and tenderness in the leg, pain on extending the foot, the skin is red and warm and swelling of the lower leg, ankle and foot,.
All of this can be avoided if you were to wear compression socks when you are on your flight to help improve the circulation in the veins in your legs. Pro Bio’s compression socks are revolutionary in how they help to treat any venous problems, by applying maximum pressure around the ankle, reduced compression mid calf and minimal compression just below the knee.
By wearing the Pro Bio sock, you can prevent DVT as the blood tends to clot down in the extremities. The Pro Bio compression sock assists with the proper blood circulation by pushing the blood from the feet to the heart.
The Pro Bio compression sock are made from cotton and weaved together with nano silver, allowing the skin to breath, together with the anti-bacterial properties featured in the nano silver construction, therefore helping the cure of sweating on the feet and neutralising foot odour completely.
