This Traveller’s Leg Massager promises to banish the perils of coach class air travel or a mega sedentary lifestyle in one shiny portable package. Ignore the incredulous stares of your fellow travellers and strap this puppy to your leg once underway. The bladder will thereupon expand and contract around your extremity to prevent deep vein thrombosis and other nasties. Two AA batteries provide up to 5 hours pump action. $149.95.
This portable leg massager improves blood circulation for those who must sit for extended periods of time–office work or transoceanic flights–by simulating the expansion and contraction of the calf muscles. The massager provides the same type of pressure as hospital compression boots by helping to counteract the sedentary conditions that can contribute to deep vein thrombosis, a serious blood clot condition. The massager wraps comfortably around a calf (or foot) and when activated, the air bladder fills intermittently, compressing muscles which improves circulation.
