ActiveForever.com and BSN Medical (Jobst) are sponsoring Leg Health Days July 18-21, 2011, at retail stores and online; open to the public, this FREE event will highlight compression stockings through discounts, personalized fittings, on-site specialists, giveaways, and more. Compression hosiery are key to healthy legs and vital to preventing blood clots, but a study published in the American Journal of Nursing revealed 29% of patients were incorrectly using their compression stockings and 26% were using incorrectly sized compression stockings.
During the free Leg Health Days event, ActiveForever's retail locations (in Scottsdale and Peoria, Arizona) will not only provide personalized fittings but also offer discounts on compression garments, gifts with purchases, coupons, giveaways, and more.
On Wednesday, July 20, 2011, the ActiveForever retail store in Peoria, Arizona will also have free food, drinks, prizes, and on-site compression stocking specialists. Enjoy all of the same at the Scottsdale, Arizona retail store on Thursday, July 21, 2011. Customers will have a chance to ensure they are purchasing the correct product at the correct size, learn how to correctly use them, and then use coupons or discounts with their purchase.
Medical supply stores aren't frequently thought of as a fun shopping experience but be prepared to have your assumptions challenged when you attend Leg Health Days at ActiveForever.
People who are not able to be at the physical store locations can still enjoy the same discount on all Jobst compression products when shopping at ActiveForever.com online or over the phone. Customers can use the discount code JOBST to receive a discount on their purchase of compression garments.
As obesity becomes more common among Americans, the increased weight (and lack of activity) adds stress on the lower body muscles, joints, and circulatory system which causes leg/ankle fatigue, swelling, blood clots (potentially fatal), and more.
Once thought of as a curse to be worn only by elderly women, compression stockings are the latest trend among athletes, frequent travelers, pregnant women, and many more who all rave about the positive effects of compression stockings.
Based in Scottsdale, Arizona, ActiveForever.com consistently seeks worldwide for top-quality, innovative medical supplies and health products to bring to customers, and carries only the best compression garments. Education is an important part of the company's mission, and they strive to help consumers be informed and knowledgeable in order to maintain an active and healthy lifestyle. The free Leg Health Days event is one of many events ActiveForever sponsors to inform the public. For more information on Leg Health Days at ActiveForever, call 480-767-6800.
