13 Nov The Perfect Diabetic Sock
Medical socks are an integral part of the treatment regime for medical diseases, such as Diabetes. They provide special support and features not found in regular socks. These extra support and key features are needed because those who have Diabetes tend to have decreased blood flow in the feet, which results in a loss of feeling. A small injury, such as a blister, can go unnoticed by a person with diabetes simply because they cannot feel it. This often times propagates into an unhealing or infected wound, putting you at risk for a foot amputation.
The SIMCAN© diabetic comfort sock is the most comfortable high-stretch sock you will ever wear and is a great sock for those with Diabetes for the following 3 reasons;
1. It has a NO BIND TOP
It will not bind or restrict circulation on most legs. It is important to ensure that blood flows freely in a diabetic foot and ankle.
2. It is SAG RESISTANCE
Although it is not restricting on the ankle, it also has maximum resistance to slipping down the ankle.
3. It has a SEAMLESS TOE
To prevent frictional blisters and pressure wounds, this sock has a totally seamless toe for maximum comfort and safety.
