Sigvaris socks help prevent blood clot during long flights

Doug Handy, who works as a commercial pilot in Atlanta is aware that the SIGVARIS Business Casual Socks he wears to make his legs feel better also act as a preventative measure against blood clots (economy-class syndrome), particularly during long flights overseas.

“I find that the Business Casual Socks make my legs feel better when I arrive at my destination,” he says. “Even on days when I’m flying short runs, I can tell a difference in how my legs feel when wearing compression socks. I like to be proactive when it comes to my health and in preventing blood clots.”

Every year, more than 2 million Americans experience a Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT). These blood clots often lead to a Pulmonary Embolism (PE), and every year more people die from DVT/PE than AIDS and breast cancer combined, according to the National Blood Clot Alliance. However, a simple change in socks could be the key to avoiding a similar fate.

“People everywhere are unaware that graduated compression socks can help prevent DVTs,” says Judith Brannan, SIGVARIS Medical Affairs & Education Manager. “Businessmen and pilots are particularly at risk for developing circulation disorders because they spend so much of their time sitting at their desk and/or traveling for work.”

That’s why SIGVARIS is excited to announce that the Business Casual line for men recently added a new color addition. They are now available in navy, brown, and black and charcoal. They also feature a subtle striped pattern and are constructed with a soft microfiber yarn for all day comfort.

The SIGVARIS Business Casual Socks are a necessary wardrobe addition for any professional businessman who wants to add years to his life by preventing blood clots and vein disease. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends graduated compression socks as a preventative measure against DVT.
