Boeing recommends that passengers do light exercises that may assist in increasing blood circulation and massaging the muscles. The Aircycle exercises do both of these things. They encourage blood circulation and as well they work and massage the muscles in feet and legs and hands and shoulders too .

As it is thought that DVT more frequently occurs during sleep, when you settle down to rest check that you are not pressed hard against something which could restrict your circulation.

Sometimes the edge of the seat can do this, especially if you have short legs. An Aircycle tucked under your knees or thighs, just where the seat sometimes cuts in, will prevent this and is added comfort while sleeping.

Using an Aircycle throughout the flight, can help avoid the chance of DVT, swollen ankles, cramps, aches and pains and helps make your flights more comfortable.
