The Right Socks for Diabetics!
Enjoying sports and physical activities can be fun and also helps us to maintain our health and fitness. However, being diabetic presents many health issues for your feet so engaging in sports and physical activities gives you the dilemma of having the right and most beneficial footwear! Well worry no more as our socks have been specifically designed with a number of features which will help to alleviate the common challenges you face in maintaining healthy feet: abrasions, drying and cracking, circulation and infection.
Our socks were developed by a team of specialists at the Polish Academy of Sciences with the aim of helping to alleviate the challenges you face. So our socks not only have cutting edge design features but are also medically proven to be effective!
There are antifungal, antibacterial and antiodour components (silver and Santized Actifresh-hygiene function) in the textile of our socks which help to reduce infection and smell. The three layer protective terry construction helps to cushion the sole and reduce abrasions. The elasticated, top mid section band, together with the Y-shaped heel help to prevent slipping and twisting (twisting and slipping can cause discomfort, leading to abrasion and infection).
Soft flat seams and seamless linking finish (no ridge of seam for your foot to rub on) further reduce the possibility of abrasion and provide more comfort. Lycra in the fabric and specific areas of elastication not only hold the sock in place but also allow for “non-compression” capability. This means they hold but not so tight as to feel restrictive or impair circulation.
The high quality textile fibres, combined with “area specific density weaving” (sounds like science fiction but simply means some areas are woven thicker than others), allow for the feet to “breath” easier, helping to regulate foot temperature and moisture control which leads to more comfort. More importantly cooler, drier feet means less possibility of fungal and bacterial growth which helps to control infection- happier feet !
All our socks have medical EC Declaration of Conformity and can be used to aid the following conditions:
- Foot, leg, and ankle swelling
- Arterial and venous insufficiency of the lower limbs
- Recurrent fungal foot
- Inflammation of the skin
- Excessive sweating
