DVT can be prevented. Travel socks minimise the risk of DVT forming in your legs during travel. This is particularly so after long period of inactivity which can allow clots to form due to sluggish circulation. These clots can migrate to the lungs with fatal results. Wearing OAPL Travel Socks during flight can reduce the liklihood of clots forming by improving circulation. OApl travel socks should be worn continuously whilst traveling. Creasing or rolling the sock during wear must be avoided.
