Travel Trade – press release

There has been little change in the basic design of commercial aircraft since the widespread introduction of jet propulsion 40 years ago, and as a result, the anticipated reduction in flight times has not occurred and in fact, new technology has been utilised to develop ultra-long-distance sectors of up to 16 hours duration. 

Additionally, commercial influences have forced airlines to maximise carrying capacity by dramatically reducing the leg space available.

This has resulted in more prolonged periods of progressively more confined seated immobility which might explain why DVT is still so often linked to travel.”

RBR legflow™ is now working with many international, long haul airlines to introduce the RBR legflow™ to their flights and to reduce the risk of DVT their customers are exposed to.
