Who Can Wear the Travel Socks With Silver Fibre?
Raynaud's sufferers know the pain of uncertain cabin temperatures when you're flying and on long haul flights, having cold feet can be extremely agonising. That's why these travel socks with their silver fibres are ideal due to their thermoregulating properties as well as minimising the risk of swelling or even blood clots in the legs.
What Are the Benefits of Wearing Travel Socks?
The main reason doctors recommend travel socks are to improve your blood flow during long periods of inactivity in the legs. They help to boost circulation and lower the chances of swelling and orthostatic hypotension which causes lightheadedness when you stand.
Will These Travel Socks Keep My Feet Warm?
Yes. Not only are they great at diminishing leg swelling, the 9% silver fibres help to reflect the heat your own body generates back to you. As well as being reflective, silver also retains heat, and this low radiant heat loss helps to keep your feet feeling warmer.
What Conditions Can These Socks Help With?
Besides being great for long haul travels or for stationary jobs, these silver coated socks can be worn to reduce the symptoms of various conditions such as:
- Athlete's foot
