Product description

manual style override

Boots Flight Socks Compression Levels 14-17mmHg have clinically proven compression levels which helps reduce the risks of flight related DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis). Prevents swollen ankles and leg discomfort. Suitable for flights and long journeys.

Why wear Flight Socks?

Circulatory problems such as DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis), and fluid build up, can occur when you spend any long period of time inactive, for example on long distance flights or journeys where conditions can be very cramped. Boots Flight Socks offer a clinically proven level of compression (14-17mmHG at the ankle), which helps to increase the blood flow, therefore reducing the risk of circulatory problems including flight-related DVT.

Who is at risk of DVT?

Anyone who will be inactive for a long period of time (e.g. flights over 4 hours) may be at risk of DVT, this risk can be even greater if you fall into one or more of the categories listed below. Please consult your doctor if you have any of these conditions:

  • Those who have blood clots already/have a family history of blood clots.
  • Those suffering from or who have had treatment for cancer.
  • Certain blood diseases.
  • Treatment for heart failure or circulation problems.
  • Recent surgery especially on the hips or knees.
  • Those who have inherited clotting tendency.

Risk is also increased if the categories below apply:-

  • Over 40 years of age.
  • If you are pregnancy.
  • If you have recently had a baby.
