Professional drivers lead stressful lives.
According to official reports, occupations in the transport and logistics sector are often characterised by high work intensity and heavy physical strain. These working conditions are also reflected in negative health effects in these professions. In addition to physical demands, professional drivers often suffer from mental stress: alone in the truck, separated from family or partners, with only a few social contacts.
The result: professional drivers experience above-average health problems:
- One of the biggest problems is the lack of exercise, which sooner or later can lead to damage to the musculoskeletal system.
- Professional drivers are also often affected by heart, circulatory and metabolic disorders.
- Long sitting in the driver's cab can lead to venous thrombosis which, in the worst case, can cause pulmonary embolism.
PREVENT THE OCCURRENCE OF THROMBOSIS
Whether you're a courier, truck driver or pilot - compression stockings are recommended for those who have to sit at the wheel for a very long time. Not only do they relieve the veins, they can also prevent fluid retention and thus prevent a seated thrombosis.
Because compression stockings are often difficult to put on and not always comfortable to wear, they are not very popular with professional drivers.
Silver socks offer a good alternative to the feeling of heavy legs and are considered a very comfortable alternative. As the best electrical conductor, silver stockings can stimulate the microcirculation of the skin, resulting in better circulation, less moisture retention and less tired feet and heavy legs. And above all, much more comfortable than compression stockings.
