Searching for a great pair of travel compression socks? DME-Direct carries the largest online selection of brand name products ideal for airplane and train travel. Unlike typical socks, they're uniquely designed to prevent DVT (deep vein thrombosis) formation in your legs as a result of sitting for long periods of time. Travel compression socks are designed to apply graduated compression to reduce pooling of blood that can cause symptoms like cramping, dull aches, and swelling. No passenger is immune - it can affect anyone from first class back to those seated in coach. The resulting clot can travel fast and can lodge in your lungs or heart and result in death in a matter of seconds.
