WHY YOU NEED IT
Reduce Swelling + Decrease Risk of Blood Clots
Sitting for long periods on a plane, train, or in a car can cause blood and fluid to pool in the lower legs and feet leading to swelling. We call this potato feet. 🥔👟
Even worse? Stagnant blood flow may cause deep vein clotting, which can lead to pulmonary embolism and other dangerous medical conditions. That's why many doctors recommend knee-high compression socks for long-haul flights.
HOW COMRAD HELPS
Improve Blood Circulation + Make Travel Easier
On travel days that involve sitting for long periods of time, wear compression socks to reduce the side effects of edema. Compression socks work their magic by gently squeezing the legs to increase blood flow from your legs and feet back towards your heart. Once the blood starts to move, swelling subsides (goodbye potato feet). You'll also lower the risk of developing blood clots that can lead to DVT (deep vein thrombosis). That’s why we recommend reaching for them before your next long flight or train ride.
Wherever wanderlust takes you, from New York to Tokyo, pack your carry-on with compression socks for travel. Frequent airline passengers swear by graduated compression therapy and the comfort that comes from a compression level gradient. High-quality graduated compression socks provide a larger amount of pressure at the ankle and less at the calf, promoting healthy blood flow from the feet to the heart. Our most popular level of compression, 15-20 millimeters of mercury (mmHg), also helps prevent varicose veins, lactic acid buildup, and discomfort. Air travel is easy with Comrad socks.
