Smart socks for diabetics help prevent hospitalization
Foot ulcers are the most common cause of hospitalization for people with diabetes, and both Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes can cause swelling in the feet. Siren Care’s socks for diabetics use smart textile technology to monitor the temperature of the skin on the feet. By comparing data for the same spot on both feet, the socks greatly reduce the chance of false alarms. If a high temperature is detected, the socks use Bluetooth Low Energy to send an alert to the smartphone app.
