The advantages of HIGHLIGHT

Sitting the whole day or standing the whole day – this makes your legs feel tired and heavy. Nor is it healthy, as it can increase the risk of varicose veins.

The risk of varicose veins increases considerably if you spend much of your working day standing or sitting. Lack of movement and insufficient intake of liquids can lead to the blood in your legs thickening. Blood and water pool and long-term problems can arise. Left untreated, this can lead to venous disorders. Therefore, the more you move, the better the blood will be pumped through the veins.

HIGHLIGHT support stockings are recommended if you are already suffering from the early symptoms of varicose or spider veins. They help the legs and the tissue around the ankle to stay in shape. Using degressive compression, they support the return of the blood from the legs to the heart, helping the legs to feel lighter. HIGHLIGHT support stockings use a clinically proven concept in which the pressure is strongest on the ankles and gradually decreases upward.

Compression stockings have traditionally had an image problem, thanks to the lack of colors from which to choose. HIGHLIGHT are different: they come in both trendy colors and designs and are almost impossible to tell apart from regular socks and tights!

What you can do for your health

Support stockings are not a miracle remedy against thrombosis, heart attacks or embolism. However, they help to reduce the risks. That said, you have to put in a little effort yourself: Make sure you move as much as possible, even when the day proves to be a long one; get up from your desk to chat with your work colleagues and take the stairs rather than the elevator. Walk to the shops. If you use public transportation, get off a stop earlier and walk. Maintain a healthy diet and keep an eye on your weight.

Sunbathing for any length of time on hot days is not good for your health – your legs swell, your blood thickens. Swimming, on the other hand, is excellent! If it’s evening time and your legs still feel heavy and your feet don’t want to take another step, put cold water on them. This improves circulation without having to do anything else – and luckily every apartment and house has a shower.

Always take care of yourself! You cannot buy health. However, HIGHLIGHT support stockings can help to prevent legs from becoming swollen, painful or hot.

Tips

TIPS FOR HEALTHY LEGS

1. Move

Bewegung

Move around as much as you can, especially if you spend your working day sitting at a desk. Walk as often as you can to the coffee-machine to meet colleagues. This is as good for your legs as it is for communication.

2. Refresh your legs

Bewegung

Keep your legs cool in the evening! Do not sunbathe, avoid saunas and do not bathe in hot water. Heat dilates the veins and can cause swelling in the legs.

3. Put your feet up

Bewegung

To prevent feet from swelling, it helps to encourage venous backflow. You can do this in the office or at home by putting your feet up on a stool and rotating them. Or you can lie on your back and place your legs vertically against a wall for a few minutes.

4. Exercise

Bewegung

Do sport! Swimming, walking, biking and yoga help.

5. Maintain a healthy body weight

Bewegung

Watch your weight. Your BMI shouldn’t be higher than 24.

6. Wear HIGHLIGHT stockings

Bewegung

Wear HIGHLIGHT support stockings. They are a stylish accessory and, at the same time ensure that your ankles do not swell and become uncomfortable.
