Prevention of diabetic ulcers is an extremely important aspect of diabetic care. Siren socks are a new innovation that can assist in Diabetic wound prevention. They work by monitoring the temperature of your feet, which allows our physicians to remotely monitor for ‘hot spots’ before they become a bigger problem.
These socks, worn daily, will take the temperature of your feet and notify your physician about problem areas early on. This technology allows your foot to be monitored in between exams and can help prevent wounds that lead to infection, hospitalization, and even amputation. When it comes to diabetic wounds timing is very important and catching a problem area on your foot early can make a huge difference.
The data from wearing these socks daily will provide your physician with another tool to monitor your feet and care for them between visits. They don’t require anything more than to wear the socks, so there’s no added effort.
