Travel is one of the deep-seated desires of almost all people. The longing to explore new places, meet new people and experience different cultures can be exciting and engaging, even intoxicating. Whether it's a long trip on the train, a bus trip between far flung towns or a plane trip taking you to your long awaited destination, the joy of travel can be numbed by the discomfort and pain of leg swelling and vein pain.
Bauerfeind have an extensive range of comfortable travel stockings. Whether you're after compression stockings for flying or something to keep you comfy when you hop off the bus between cities, make sure you've got compression sorted.
Are these just for plane travel?
While plane travel is the main activity that compression stockings are helpful for in terms of travel, it's not by any means the only one. Long bus trips, road trips to another city or even state or an overnight train are among others just to name a few. They're also suited for working in the office or driving for work for all day wear.
Can I wear these all day?
Virtually all our medical supports are designed to be worn for any length of time, whether it's half an hour after exercise to recover the muscle, or first thing in the morning to last thing at night.
How long do they last?
Bauerfeind's high quality construction and design mean that all of our products go the distance, especially when cared for properly. Below is a rough outline of how long products last before they start to lose their effectiveness over time.
Compression Stockings - 6 to 9 months of daily wear
Braces & supports - 1 to two years of daily wear
Insoles - 9 to 12 months of daily wear
It's important to note that this is a rough guideline, and each person's usage and general care can change the longevity of the product either way
How do I take care of these products?
Virtually all of our products can be machine washed on a cold gentle cycle and air dried out of direct sunlight. Putting them on and taking them off carefully is recommended, and for specific product care, refer to the product manual or contact our friendly staff.
What is the warranty for these products?
All supports and insoles come with a 12 month warranty, and compression stockings with a 3 month warranty for any manufacturers faults. At any point if you've got issues with the product or aren't sure if something is wrong, just contact our helpful staff.
How do I know they'll fit?
Bauerfeind have an incredibly extensive sizing system for our products based off of hundreds of thousands of patient measurements. The perfect anatomic fit system we use means that the supports are designed to fit your body, not the other way around. (We also offer custom options for a range of our products for those rare few who still can't fit into our sizing range).
