Health Socks

Our range of health socks are specifically designed to protect and prevent common foot problems and swollen legs. These socks are manufactured with a non-elasticated welt top which helps to alleviate health problems such as DVT, varicose veins and issues associated with type two diabetes.

Diabetes

Features
Diabetic socks are designed with a number of features to directly address foot issues associated with the condition.2


Moisture-Wicking Material
Wicking socks pull moisture away from the foot to allow sweat to evaporate, thereby lowering the risk of fungal infections and also preventing odour. The drier the foot, the more protection from developing blisters and other wounds as well. Acrylic fibers are better than cotton for moisture-wicking.


Seamless
Diabetic socks typically are made without seams along the toe to reduce the risk of rubbing and blisters that could lead to ulcers, especially for someone with neuropathy or chronic hyperglycemia (high blood sugar). Diabetic socks also sometimes have white soles to reveal draining of a wound that may not be felt.


Soft Yarns
Some diabetic socks are made from fine-textured fabrics such as natural cotton and wool, both of which have natural antimicrobial properties and also aren’t likely to be abrasive against the skin.
