The majority of travel socks available are made from nylon. Nylon generates heat, which leads to sweating and results in foot odour. Not what you want in a confined space at 30,000 feet with a few hundred fellow travellers. Therapeutix travel socks are made from 67% cotton. Cooler, healthier and very comfortable to wear. Inside each pack is an information booklet explaining the following. • what is dvt? • what are the symptoms? • who is most at risk? • what should you do? • fitting instructions as well as care instructions. To safe guard against dvt, compression hosiery should be worn when sitting or standing for long periods of time.
