What is Varicose Veins
Veins which have a swollen appearance due to heavy blood stagnation in legs are called varicose veins. When venous valves become faulty, they cannot prevent the blood from returning to the legs.
This increases pressure on the venous walls leading to enlargement and can cause leg pain, swelling, change in skin colour and leg ulcers in severe cases. Standing or sitting for long periods increases the risk of developing varicose veins. Other factors are pregnancy,obesity,sedentary lifestyle,etc.

Key benefits of Sit-walker
Blood stagnation in legs is a leading cause of deep vein thrombosis(OVT) episodes.
Stagnating blood tends to clot – most probable sites are the legs. These clots can move along with the flowing blood and reach the heart.
When they are pumped out from the heart, they can get stuck in smaller vessels and cause thrombotic attacs.
Often, fatal results are seen due to clots lodged in critical sites like.
1.Lungs-causing Pulmonary Embolsm (PE) or
2.Coronary-vessels causing cardiac arrest or
3.Brain – Causing brain stroke
