WESTPORT, Conn., April 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Soxxy CEO, Sarah Stabile introduces a new line of stylish compression sox to the health and wellness community at the Fairfield County Women's Expo. The Expo is sponsored by Stamford Hospital, featuring products and services from apparel and fashion accessories to beauty, fitness, medical and nutrition. The largest event for women in Fairfield will be held at the Crowne Plaza in Stamford, April 25 – 26.
Soxxy is recommended by top doctors, nurses, athletes and flight crew. Whether you're traveling, pregnant, recovering from surgery or training for a marathon, Soxxy will increase your circulation and leg energy. Other benefits include reduced swelling and decreased risk of blood clots and Deep Vein Thrombosis.
"We're thrilled to participate in the Fairfield County Women's Health Expo," said Stabile. "I grew up here, it's a health conscious market with some of the top Doctors in the world. The community embraces compression, but has struggled to find high-quality, stylish compression sox offered in a variety of lengths and levels. Soxxy is filling the gap and making compression sox more accessible and acceptable to the masses."
Soxxy's first vending machine came off the line and is fully operational at the Vascular Experts Clinic in Stratford. Patients can simply walk out of their doctor's office and into the waiting room to purchase compression sox. The machine is filled with unisex thigh-highs in 20 – 30 mmHg (sizes: Large and Extra-Large); unisex knee-highs in 15 – 20 mmHg, 18 – 22 mmHg and 20 – 30 mmHg (sizes: Medium, Large and Extra-Large). The machine accepts credit and debit cards. There's also a sizing chart and tape measure to help guide patients towards the correct fit.
"Vascular Surgeons recommend compression socks to all of their patients," said Dr. Marsel Huribal, MD, FACS and Senior Partner at the Vascular Experts. "In the past, patients often bought the wrong size or didn't bother going to the medical supply store because it was inconvenient. By installing a vending machine in our waiting room, we're taking the guess work out of the purchase process and ensuring our patients are in the right style, size and level of compression."
Soxxy compression sox are the brainchild of Sarah Stabile, who is toeing the line of style and health with her sox creations. Soxxy's graduated compression not only increases circulation, but also reduces swelling and muscle soreness. Made of ultra soft micro-nylon and Lycra, Soxxy provides ultimate stretch and recovery. Soxxy's influencer "Soxpert" network is comprised of Olympic athletes, pilots, entrepreneurs, surgeons, yoga, pilates and spin instructors. Soxxys are sold onboard airlines, in hospitals, vein clinics and online at www.soxxyair.com.
