There are various patients who are bed-ridden for a protracted period. Pregnancy, surgery and illness are some of the common causes for patient being bed-ridden. Doctors always suggest them the use of anti embolism stockings. These socks or stockings are ideally built for such patients as it helps to maintain the proper circulation of blood within the legs of the patients. As you’re lying flat in bed for a long time, the normal blood conduction in legs is hampered. The valves inside the veins work as per the gravitational pull which is impossible and this may also result in the coagulation of blood at certain places.

In the absence of the gravitational pull, the proper working of the veins is not possible. The moving of the blood from the heart to the legs and back is hindered. Thus the use of the anti embolism stockings becomes inevitable. Also known as the deep vein thrombosis socks, these socks are also useful in certain other scenarios too. While you’re standing static or sitting without much moving, the same problems could be faced and the solution is obviously these socks. If you’re not in favor of using the anti embolism stockings while you’re sitting or standing still, you have to do certain free hand exercises. They are quite simple like walking, stretching, spinning of ankles, flexing your muscles etc..

If people are still unaware about what deep vein thrombosis socks are, here lies the answer. The clotting of blood in veins of the legs is the disease. If the clot breaks, then no harm is caused to the patient, but in case that doesn’t happen, it may cause fatal heart attacks or brain strokes by moving towards heart and brains respectively. In bed-ridden situations, there is no better alternative to anti embolism stockings.
