MUMBAI, (GNI): Capital First Limited, one of India’s leading NBFC has partnered with The Mumbai Traffic Police for compression socks distribution initiative amongst the police personnel. The Mumbai Traffic Police, while they’re on civic duty across the roads and at various traffic junctions has to commit long standing hours, as a result of which they end up having tired legs. This in turn in the long run causes various health related issues such as swollen/tired/aching legs and varicose veins.
Being responsive to the hardships faced by our forces, Capital First Limited has taken the initiative at addressing the problems faced by Mumbai Traffic Police force for proactively giving them some relief so as to enhance their leg wellness and enabling them to lead a better quality of life during their work hours by providing them with Compression Socks. The benefits accrued from compression socks are:
- Relief from tired and aching legs and also prevention of swollen ankles
- Improved blood circulation
- Prevent Varicose Veins
How the Pressure sock works: Veins in the legs send blood back to the heart through a series of valves that open and close with muscle contraction preventing backward flow of blood. A multitude of problems; such as age, disease, heredity, obesity, as well as prolonged sitting or standing can cause these valves to malfunction; thus allowing blood to pool/coagulate in the lower legs. The result is pain, swelling and stagnation of blood. Application of graduated compression socks helps the vein to empty thickening of blood and assists the return of blood to the heart, relieving tired/aching legs and other critical health problems of legs like varicose veins.
Speaking on the initiative, Nihal Desai, Executive Director – Capital First Limited said, “Capital First is deeply committed to the communities that it serves. As a responsible Corporate Citizen, we are honoured to have joined hands with the Traffic Police in Mumbai to raise awareness on how to safeguard the officer’s health from long work hours.”
