SmoothToe represents the most progressive diabetic sock available. These socks are distributed by Osborn Medical, a company providing products for people with vascular needs for over 15 years. They truly understand the special needs of the diabetic foot!
SmoothToe Socks Feature:
• No Irritating Toe Seam. People with diabetes cannot afford to have even small irritations to their feet. By eliminating the toe seam, the most common cause of foot irritations and sores is eliminated.
•Keeps Feet Cool and Dry. Cotton is not only a relatively abrasive material, but it also absorbs foot perspiration and holds it against your skin. This gives bacteria and fungus a chance to grow and attack the skin and this is the last thing that a diabetic needs. These socks are made of CoolMax®, the same material that many athletes and outdoorsmen use to protect their feet and keep them dry. CoolMax® fibers wick moisture away from your skin, keeping your foot dry, unlike moisture absorbing cotton.
•Secure Fit. Sock stays firmly in place so that it does not wrinkle. When a sock wrinkles or bunches up, it can cause irritation, sores, and restricted blood flow. These are the worse thinks that can happen to a diabetic’s foot. Spandex fibers gently keep SmoothToe Socks in place so that they will not slip.
•Unique Hourglass Construction. SmoothToe uses Lycra® throughout the sock to provide just the right amount of snugness without restricting blood flow. In addition, Lycra® has the beneficial effect of providing a light massaging effect to the foot. Great for tired, aching legs and feet!
•Heel to Toe Comfort Sole. Double weaving creates a thicker sole and extra padding to protect your toe, heel, and entire foot.
15-20mmHg Knee High are our most popular style for everyday wear. Recommended for all adults over the age of 40 to prevent venous disease, varicose veins and edema (swelling of the feet, legs or ankles).
They are particularly popular where you’re on your feet all day at work or managing any of the following:
Poor Circulation: graduated compression socks with 15-20mmHg of compression are clinically proven to increase circulation. Whether you are managing diabetes or suffering from cold feet, you will benefit immediately from the increased circulation delivered by these over the calf compression socks.
Leg Fatigue: is often experienced by people who spend hours standing or sitting still at work or at home. The increased blood flow that is stimulated by these knee high socks reduces leg fatigue by 57% in clinical studies.
Sore Feet: is often the painful result of working on hard floors, or in a job that requires lots of walking (or attending a dreaded trade show!). The mid-foot arch support in all SmoothToe® Energizing Socks was developed with this problem in mind, and is extremely effective.
