VT diabetic socks are specially designed will all the specific requirements needed for comfortable and healthy feet needed for diabetes individuals. They are made with the latest technology known as DRY ENERGY.
DRY from DriRelease® because the socks pull moisture away from skin to keep you dry and comfortable.
ENERGY from Celliant® because the socks recycle and convert radiant body heat into something that gives the body a measurable boost – infrared energy.
Diabetic socks must minimize foot injuries and keep feet dry and warm. Also, they have to reduce pressure in lower leg and foot. Ultimately, their jobs are to protect your feet and provide maximum comfort.
Here are the characteristics of VT diabetic socks and 8 reasons why to choose them:
1 – Seamless design.
The socks have to minimize friction to the nerves and minimize neurological discomfort and pain. Socks with seams can rub against your skin and cause blisters or ulcers.
2 – Moisture-Wicking.
Keeping feet dry is important for preventing skin infections. Dri-Release® with FreshGuard® and Coolmax® (at calf) remove perspiration FAST and prevents odor naturally.
3 – Breathable.
Breathable fabrics help keep feet dry. Nasty germs love warm, damp spots and that’s why moisture can increase your risk of getting a foot infection.
4 – Warm.
Diabetes can cause blood vessels to restrict, decreasing circulation to the feet. Fabrics that keep your feet warm help to improve blood circulation. Celliant® Infrared has been clinically proven to relieve pain, promote quicker wound healing, improve sleep quality, heighten athletic performance and help to regulate body temperature.
5 – Fit.
These socks simply fit well to prevent restrictions in the calf from a tight sock line that can limit circulation. When circulation is decreased, it becomes harder for the body to heal.
6 – Soft & Non-binding.
Soft feel for maximum comfort and non-binding top that gently conforms to the leg. The materials of VT diabetic socks are wrinkle-resistant to minimize the chances of material abrasion on skin.
7 – Padding.
Padding in the sock cushions the foot, minimizes sensitivity and irritations, relieves aches and protects it from injury.
8 – Color.
As you may notice the foot area of VT diabetic socks are in white off (natural) color. Show the presence of blood or other discharge from injuries. Diabetes causes small blood vessels to die thereby killing the nerves they supply and making healing of wounds especially difficult. The patient can become numb in the feet and not feel foot injuries. Wearing white socks can alert the patient to any blood that may be coming from a foot injury so that prompt medical care can be delivered.
Anyone can wear these socks just for the quality and the higher comfort features, and some people with circulatory issues can benefit from them as well. But it is the diabetes individuals would truly benefit from ALL the design features and see the change in their lifestyles.
VT diabetic socks are made in the USA.
Wearing VT socks for diabetics, choosing shoes that fit well, keeping blood glucose levels under control and ensuring you check your feet for signs of damage or changes will each also help to improve your chances of avoiding foot complications.
