What is the Siren Care Diabetic Sock and Foot Monitoring System?
August 20, 2018
If you or a loved one has diabetes, you have likely heard of diabetic socks. Today we'll talk about what makes Siren socks special and how the larger foot monitoring system works together.
What are diabetic socks?
When you have diabetes, you are more at risk for foot injuries. Over time, elevated blood sugar levels, genetics, lifestyle, and behavior can cause damage to the nerves and blood vessels in your feet. This damage means that you can lose feeling in your feet.
This can create more problems because, if you get an injury like a blister or a cut, you may not even know it is there. If left untreated, these smaller injuries can get worse and you can easily develop a foot ulcer. Wearing diabetic socks helps protect your feet so you are less likely to get injuries.
How does the Siren Care Diabetic Sock and Foot Monitoring System work?
Siren's Diabetic Sock and Foot Monitoring system combines the idea of diabetic socks with new technology and a larger system to provide an extra level of protection against foot ulcers and amputations.
The technology used by Siren's socks is called temperature monitoring. Temperature monitoring has been clinically proven to help prevent foot ulcers and amputations by 87%.
Siren's socks work by using miniature sensors that continuously monitor the temperature of your feet as you wear the socks every day. A temperature difference between your feet is a sign of inflammation. Inflammation is a precursor to injury, so by measuring inflammation, you can prevent more serious injuries before they begin.
You can use the information collected by the Siren system to determine the best course of action with your doctor to address a potential problem with your feet. This significantly reduces your chance of developing further injury such as a foot ulcer.
The best part: Siren socks are so comfortable, you won't even notice the sensors are there! They're as easy to wear every day as your favorite pair of standard socks.
