In order to create the first smart wearable that offers real-time biofeedback data, the “Smart Diabetic Socks” initiative is working on a pair of diabetic socks. A foot that is wet is a perfect environment for bacteria to develop in a wound and spread infection. Dry feet are made possible by the moisture-wicking fabric used to make diabetic socks.
This could be a mixture of synthetic fabrics or wool. There has been development of a completely cordless, programmable, and washable “smart sock.” The fabric used to make it is knitted in such a way that measurements of the pressure placed under and all around the foot under actual walking conditions are produced.
The Global Smart diabetic socks market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
For people with diabetes, Siren has introduced smart socks. The Siren Diabetic Sock and Foot Monitoring System and its companion software track users’ foot temperatures as an early indicator of inflammation and, ultimately, diabetic foot ulcers.
It developed this technology because there was no way to constantly check for these serious issues, despite the fact that foot ulcers are the most frequent, expensive, and fatal complication for diabetics.
The Neurofabric has countless uses in the fields of healthcare, athletics, the military, and fashion, but it was clear to them that tackling this particular issue was where they needed to start because it affects so many people and can mean the difference between losing a limb or not.
Siren claimed that the material can be made affordably and effectively using common industrial machinery because the Neuro Fabric textile is designed with its microsensors integrated right into the fabric.
Additionally, when worn, clothing manufactured from the material has the same appearance and feel as other clothing. With Siren’s recently released smart sock, users can continuously watch their body temperatures at a clinical level all day long.
Wearers can watch the current foot temperature at six different locations through the app or online web portal, and they can opt to receive push notifications or text messages whenever there is an increase.
