Warwick, R.I. - EuroSocks North America, a topproducer of sport-specific performance and compression socks, hasintroduced Euros Rx for Diabetics. Developed in collaboration witha team of physicians, the patent-pending dual-tone technology designcomes in white and dark dress sock colors while preserving thepatented white bottom to allow diabetics to easily monitor thecondition of their feet.
“Beyond the typical drug store variety of Diabetic socks, theEuros Rx for Diabetics really works with how people live. No onewants to wear white socks every day, even though doctors like myselfprefer them for people with diabetes,” says Dr. RichardReuter, a diabetic foot and ankle specialist. “Now, with darktop and white bottom, the socks are more attractive to patients forconsistent – rather than occasional – use.”
The constriction-free Euros Rx for Diabetics socks feature wovenarch support, a mild ankle brace, a padded terry sole and flat knittoe seam. Patented dual-tone technology white bottom design enableseasy detection of wound drainage or bleeding.
“Doctors were so impressed with patient satisfaction with ourcompression socks ability to stimulate blood flow, increasecirculation, reduce muscle fatigue and alleviate foot and legswelling that they requested we make a constriction-free line thataddresses the special needs of diabetic foot care,” saidEuroSocks Chairman and CEO Alan M. Jacober, “We’re pleased tointroduce this line for unsurpassed ease of use and comfort.”
