Introduction

Diabetic socks are specially designed socks for patients with diabetes so as to prevent the chances for blistering. These socks are designed for controlling moisture, prevent blistering on the skin surface, and minimizing moisture accumulation. Basically their main function is to protect the feet and provide maximum support. Diabetic socks are cushioned with extra padding in order to prevent foot ulcers.

These socks are typically non-elastic and seamless. Diabetic socks are an important preventive tool for people who have diabetes because they work to protect the feet from potential injuries. Smart socks is the newest development in diabetic socks. Smart socks utilize fiber optic sensors to monitor pressure, moisture and foot joint ankles to warn of the potential development of ulcers in parts with nerve damage. Smart diabetic socks can greatly reduce the amount of amputations and death due to foot ulcers and infections.
