Fashion & Function: Trendy Compression Socks

socks

Many of us don’t think of socks as a fashion accessory, but “sock statements” are all over the runways, magazines, blogs and city streets. As it gets cooler outside, the chicer it is to flaunt your feet in colourful prints.

BioPed offers fashionable therapeutic socks that are made from a high-performance custom yarn “Cashmerino/Bamboo” or “Lambswool/Alpaca” to ensure a luxurious feel.  The products we carry use accu-fit technology to offer an uncompromising fit, ultra-smooth toe closures and a combination of fibres that manage moisture and are odour/blister-resistant. These premium compression socks are non-binding and non-shearing, making them fashionable, functional and comfortable.

Available in a variety of patterns and 2 levels of compression, they not only look great, but keep blood from pooling below the knee to prevent swelling. They also help minimize varicose veins by increasing circulation and help prevent tired, achy legs.

Medical – An Amazing Diabetic Sock that won’t Break the Bank!

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.
