Many men are unaware that just by changing the type of socks they wear, they could add years to their life
Peachtree City, GA (PRWEB) July 05, 2011
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.
“Many men are unaware that just by changing the type of socks they wear, they could add years to their life,” says Byron MacPhee, SIGVARIS’ vice president of Sales for the United States. “Businessmen are especially at risk for developing circulation disorders because they spend so much of their time working at their desk or traveling for work.”
That’s why SIGVARIS is excited to announce an all-new Business Casual Sock that features graduated compression therapy to help reduce this risk. Anyone that sits for long periods of time will experience less blood circulation due to gravity. Graduated compression socks increase pressure where veins are the weakest to improve blood flow and one’s overall health.
The Business Casual Sock is 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 Deep Vein Thrombosis.
These amazing new socks feature a timeless striped pattern and are available in navy, brown and black. To find them at the nearest store, visit http://www.sigvarisusa.com/find.
