Qantas has become the first airline in the world to launch an exercise video on all its international flights to help prevent deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
The four-minute exercise video was developed by academics at the University of Melbourne in a partnership with Physitrack, a global health-tech provider, and Sports Medicine Australia's official exercise technology partner. Sports Medicine Australia has endorsed the exercise video.
Whilst the risk of DVT is extremely low, it is always important to take preventive measures as the threat is always there. Through simple, regular stretching, mobility exercises, and walking around the cabin mid-flight your risk of DVT is dramatically reduced.
