Compression Socks and Stockings

People who have sedentary jobs and people who travel long distances in the economy class generally need to be careful about the blood accumulating in the lower part of the legs.

The veins that carry the blood back to the heart become dilated and are unable to carry the blood back to heart. This causes the accumulation of blood and sometimes it can be very life threatening too. In fact it is also known as economy class syndrome and was named so after a female died mid air because of the deep vein thrombosis.

Most of the people who travel long distances should wear the compression socks. There are a lot of companies that manufacture the compression socks. These compression socks apply pressure at the ankle as well as the lower part of the leg. These are known as the graduated socks as the pressure that is applied is gradually reduced and the maximum pressure is applied at the lower part of the leg near the ankle.
