Diabetic Gel Socks
Gel socks are great for reducing friction, abrasion, and shear forces on your feet, which can often result in uncomfortable calluses. They also often occur as a side-effect of some major systemic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, or arthritis. Gel socks provide optimum protection for the neuropathic foot as well. They can be used as a soft tissue supplement for fat pad atrophy. The gel in the bottom of the sock conforms to the shape of your foot to provide added support and cushioning while being comfortable and non-restrictive. The gel is thin and placed on the sole of the sock with a single layer so it’s more washable and reusable than other brands of socks.
