The Anti-DVT compression flight socks are clinically proven to assist in encouraging blood circulation and preventing deep vein thrombosis during long periods of inactivity.

With a compression level of 14–17mmhg, these flight socks gently provide graduated pressure on your legs from your ankles up to the bottom of your knees. This pressure assists in getting the blood in your feet and legs moving back towards your heart, and in doing so reduces excess fluid buildup, tired, swollen, and aching legs. These socks have been approved by the Therapeutic Goods Administration (TGA) as a Class 1 Medical Device – ARTG260845.

WARNING:

Do not use if you have serious circulatory problems. Please consult a Healthcare Professional on the suitability of this product if you have any circulatory problems, have had major surgery or chronic illness or if you are pregnant.

What is Deep Vein Thrombosis?

A Deep Vein Thrombosis is a clot of blood that forms in the leg veins. A DVT is not dangerous in itself, but complications arising from it may occasionally be life-threatening. If the clots start to break free from the veins and pass through the bloodstream into the lungs (a condition called "pulmonary embolism"), a person could suffer from pain in the chest, worsened by breathing. Pulmonary embolism can also cause shortness of breath and the coughing up of small amounts of blood.

Most importantly of all, but fortunately rarely, if the blood clot is large enough, it can cause sudden death by traveling to the heart and lungs and interrupting the blood flow.

Prevention

It must be stressed that the risk of developing Deep Vein Thrombosis or pulmonary embolism during flight is low, but it can occur. The consequences can be extremely serious and therefore prevention is important.

Exercising the legs while seated, getting up and walking around the cabin, drinking water or soft drinks and avoiding excessive tea, coffee or alcohol, are all simple but vital elements in preventing DVT.

Another recommended precaution is the wearing of compression travel socks. Legs tend to swell during flight due to the low cabin pressure and remaining in one position for a long period of time.

Compression travel socks help prevent:

  • Risk of circulatory problems such as Deep Vein Thrombosis – DVT (blood clots)
  • Swollen ankles
  • Tired aching legs

The flight compression socks come in black and nude colors, and are sized at Small, Medium, Large. Measure the circumference around your ankle and calf to find the best size for you. Choose the larger size if between sizes.

(measure circumference points)

  • Small ankle: 18–21cm / widest point of calf: 28–39cm / top band of sock: 26–37cm
  • Medium ankle: 21–24cm / widest point of calf: 33–41cm / top band of sock: 31–39cm
  • Large ankle: 24–28cm / widest point of calf: 36–45cm / top band of sock: 33–43cm

Material:80% nylon, 20% elastane
Graduated pressure: 14–17 mmHg
Color: Black, Nude

Important warning: Do not fold the top band over or allow socks to roll. Not recommended for ages under 13.
