With so much emphasis placed on proper diabetic footwear, it is important that diabetic socks have the correct size, fit, fiber and construction. Most diabetic socks are soft, provide padding on the sole of the foot, and should adapt to the foot/leg without wrinkles. They may be seamless or have a "flat seam" against the toes/foot. The fibers should wear evenly, instead of leaving thin spots where friction can occur and offer moisture-wicking properties to minimize the risk of infection and blisters.
Available in North America, SIGVARIS Diabetic Compression Socks offer all these same features, plus the benefit of 18-25mmHg graduated compression. They are designed with the diabetic patient in mind. This soft padded sock is made with DriRelease® yarns with FreshGuard® to wick away moisture and provide odor control. Extra attention has been made to provide a flat interio seam on the toe guard, as well as a more comfortable top band.
Unlike some diabetic socks, which are measured by shoe size only, SIGVARIS socks provide a custom-like fit by measuring your ankle, calf and lower leg length to determine your size. Look at this difference as "medicine for your legs"!
