Compression Stockings for Airline Employees
You care for your passengers health & safety. What about yours?
According to studies, the risk of deep vein thrombosis (DVT) is increased during any type of long distance travel. In some cases, blood clots can migrate to the lungs, resulting in a pulmonary embolism. Here's why:
During travel, blood circulation within the legs is reduced while your movement is constrained. Lack of movement can cause many common symptoms such as heavy, fatigued, tired legs, leg pain, or swollen feet and ankles. Sound familiar? Prolonged sitting is also a risk factor for the development of thrombosis (blood clot formation).
For women (flight attendants, ticket and gate agents, pilots): Graduated compression stockings are sheer and look great - anyone can see that. What no one can see is that they are helping your circulation by applying the heaviest pressure at the ankle, and gradually decreasing as they go up your legs. They are, in essence, "forcing" the body to act as it should - continuously moving blood and fluids from the lower legs, back up to the heart.
Men or women can have the same theraputic relief by wearing a soft and comfortable pair of compression knee-high socks which look just like a regular pair of dress socks.
Ramp and grounds crew members spend long hours on hard surfaced floors and pavement, and often in heavy boots. The heavy-duty cushioning under the foot of the "Cushioned Cotton" series will provide theraputic relief of pain and swelling of the legs, with a rugged sock that's perfect with workboots (including steel-toed).
