Socks:  Looking After Your Feet & Legs

Obesity is linked with osteoarthritis (loss of cartilage in the joints), which commonly affects knees and hips. Carrying too much weight can also lead to varicose veins – dilated superficial veins which range from hardly noticeable to large bunches of grape-like structures behind the knee. About one in three women suffer from varicose veins.

Varicose veins are not life-threatening but they look unsightly and can also be painful. Being overweight can make the condition worse, as can pregnancy, when the hormonal influence of progesterone relaxes the veins. Varicose veins in pregnancy usually improve after the baby is born.

‘The most important thing is to have your varicose veins assessed properly, usually with an ultrasound scan,’ advises John Scurr, a consultant vascular surgeon from Middlesex Hospital.

You can then be advised on which treatment is most suitable – wearing elastic stockings, surgery, injection treatment or laser treatment.  Walking is also an excellent way to tone the muscles in the leg, reduce body fat and improve circulation.

Adaptawear sells a range of comfortable and warm socks available for both men and women to help keep your feet and legs in good condition; see below for our best-sellers:

Diabetic Socks Extra Wide Rib

Our range of quality orthopaedic and diabetic socks are aimed at promoting healthy feet and allowing your feet to breathe and are manufactured to ensure they do not rub or irritate your skin.  These extra wide socks stretch to 60cm giving room to wear over bandages or for swollen feet and ankles.  Comes with a soft, non-elastic cuff and hand linked toe.   2 pair pack in choice of black, navy or beige.   Price:  £13.75 ex VAT

Luxury Striped Microfibre Sock

2 pairs of luxury striped microfibre socks in choice of colours. Keeps sweat away from your feet to be reabsorbed into the air rather than remaining trapped in the fibres.  Available in Pink and Cream or Blue & Grey. Price: £6.00 inc VAT

Adapted Clothing for Fitness:  January a Time To Burn Off Excess Calories!

After a busy and hopefully enjoyable Christmas and New Year, it’s exercisetime to burn off the extra calories off!  Exercise is good for people of any age and can ease symptoms of many chronic conditions. And contrary to popular belief, weakness and poor balance are actually linked to inactivity, rather than age.

What types of exercise are possible with limited mobility?

Cardiovascular exercises that raise your heart rate and increase your endurance. These can include walking, running, cycling, dancing, tennis, swimming, water aerobics, or “aqua jogging”. Many people with mobility issues find exercising in water especially beneficial as it supports the body and reduces the risk of muscle or joint discomfort. Even if you’re confined to a chair or wheelchair, it’s still possible to perform cardiovascular exercise.

Strength training exercises involve using weights or other resistance to build muscle and bone mass, improve balance, and prevent falls. Flexibility exercises help enhance your range of motion, prevent injury, and reduce pain and stiffness. These may include stretching exercises and yoga.

Here at Adaptawear we have some discreetly adapted clothing to help when undertaking exercise.  These include tracksuit pants and swimwear for incontinence sufferers.

Tracksuit Pants with side zips

Soft unisex tracksuit pants with side zips all the way down both legs. Navy in sizes Small – XX Large. Price £30.00 ex VAT
