When it comes to things like compression socks and compression devices for your legs, their main task is to help keep blood flowing and help repair damage done to them, or prevent the loss of a leg over time.
One of the major problems of compression socks is that while they do push the blood from one place to another, it doesn’t continue pushing the blood. So once you take the socks or items off, the blood just returns to the area that it was removed from.
One of the major differences and benefits of Spryng 2.0 is that it helps with the process of moving your blood, and does so by pushing the blood up the leg with slow motions to specifically help force the blood to actually continue its process of moving through the leg.
Traditionally these devices are suggested for athletes who have been injured, or have overworked their legs. It also is helpful for diabetes patients who have bad circulation problems and need this type of device to prevent them from losing their legs.
I, however, know of another group of people who would benefit from using this device, people who are prone to the formation of blood clots. While the device isn’t specifically listed for this use, and hasn’t been approved for it, for this group of people, the idea of a long flight can be scary because they can’t get up and move around. Inactivity for these people can specifically lead to the formation of blood clots. Devices like these can help prevent blood clots from forming by keeping the blood moving in their legs as if they were being active.
It’s also good news that the Spryng 2.0 is also TSA approved.
While this device is not currently available on the market, you can keep track of its release and other products from Spryng Here.
