Why wear Travel Fresh Flight Socks?
Boots Pharmaceuticals Travel Fresh 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 (Deep Vein Thrombosis) and swollen ankles.
Meryl Skinlife, blends sliver particles into the fibres to help prevent bacteria growth in the textile, keeping your socks fresh and odour free. The antimicrobial agent in Meryl Skinlife provides lasting odour protection for the life of the socks.
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 any one or more of the categories listed below. Please consult your doctor if you have any of these conditions listed in the warnings section.
