Travel socks

Specific compression against traveller's thrombosis

medi travel socks support your natural blood circulation so that you arrive at your destination feeling fresh.

Studies show that compression stockings with a defined pressure gradient, like medi travel socks, can reduce the risk of traveler's thrombosis. Optimum fit ensures pleasant wearing comfort and the soft cuff ensures a very gentle, yet snug, fit.

Compression garments from medi - guardian angel on journeys

Sitting more or less motionless for long periods of time in cars, buses or aircraft slows down the blood circulation. The veins are kept busy pumping the blood back out of the legs in the direction of the heart. This is compounded on aeroplanes by the dry air and the low air pressure. This results in the legs swelling up and becoming tired - and the risk of thrombosis is increased.

Even people with a healthy venous system can then suffer traveller's thrombosis. medi's travel socks exert specific compression to support the natural blood circulation. As with other medical compression garments, the pressure decreases from the ankle upwards. The result: the legs feel light and relaxed, even after long periods of sitting, and the risk of traveller's thrombosis is considerably minimised.
