KENDALL travel socks

Warding Against Travel Thrombosis:
The KENDALL* Travel Sock is designed to help increase blood flow in the veins of the legs and thus help minimise the risk of blood clot formation. Blood clot formation and poor circulation can be caused by extended period of immobilisation during travel by car, bus, train and air flight. Once a blood clot develops, it can break away from the vein wall and travel to the lungs causing a potentially fatal condition known as a pulmonary embolism.

Travel Thrombosis, Economy Class Syndrome, and DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) are all names for the condition that results from blood clot development in the legs during extended periods of travel.

The Travel Sock impacts Travel Thrombosis by providing the recommend pressure to increase blood flow and diminish the risk of vein damage or stretching by actually compressing the vein diameter. The enhanced blood flow helps reduce the ability of clots to form and the compression of the vein diameter helps reduce the potential sites for clot formation.
