This press release is an announcement submitted by EuroSocks, and was not written by Diabetes Health.
Warwick, R.I. - EuroSocks North America, a top producer of sport-specific performance and compression socks, has introduced Euros Rx for Diabetics. Developed in collaboration with a team of physicians, the patent-pending dual-tone technology design comes in white and dark dress sock colors while preserving the patented white bottom to allow diabetics to easily monitor the condition of their feet.
“Beyond the typical drug store variety of Diabetic socks, the Euros Rx for Diabetics really works with how people live. No one wants to wear white socks every day, even though doctors like myself prefer them for people with diabetes,” says Dr. Richard Reuter, a diabetic foot and ankle specialist. “Now, with dark top and white bottom, the socks are more attractive to patients for consistent - rather than occasional - use.”
The constriction-free Euros Rx for Diabetics socks feature woven arch support, a mild ankle brace, a padded terry sole and flat knit toe seam. Patented dual-tone technology white bottom design enables easy detection of wound drainage or bleeding.
“Doctors were so impressed with patient satisfaction with our compression socks ability to stimulate blood flow, increase circulation, reduce muscle fatigue and alleviate foot and leg swelling that they requested we make a constriction-free line that addresses the special needs of diabetic foot care,” said EuroSocks Chairman and CEO Alan M. Jacober, “We’re pleased to introduce this line for unsurpassed ease of use and comfort.”
Euros Rx and Euros Rx for Diabetics are currently available through podiatrists and vascular surgeons’ offices. Euros Rx compression socks are sold at OB GYN practices to reduce swelling of feet, ankles and legs during pregnancy and surgery.
