Travel Compression Benefits

For those that travel long distances, compression products are recommended to help promote better circulation. Sitting for prolonged periods of time can compromise circulation and may result in swelling and/or tired and achy legs.

Gradient Compressing Products help to promote improved circulation. Compression stockings are designed to deliver a controlled amount of pressure which is greatest at the ankle of the garment and gradually decreases towards the top of the stocking. This gradient pressure promotes better circulation to help control swelling and relieve tired achy legs.

You may consider using compression during travel if you experience:

  • Foot and ankle swelling
  • Tired, achy legs
  • Leg discomfort

 

If you feel you may need compression, consult your health care provider to determine the best compression level and compression product for you.
