Diabetic socks control moisture to reduce the chance of fungal infection. In these socks, the seams are very delicate so as not to cause sores in diabetic patients. It usually has a wider toe that prevents pressure on the toe and creating a diabetic wound. Reduced chances of blistering and scarring due to erosion. Mild foot pressure and increased circulation Lack of static electricity Anti-allergic and antibacterial Any discharge or bleeding is easily seen on the sock.
Antibacterial Diabetic Socks Woven with ZnO Nanoparticles
Diabetes is a chronic, lifelong condition in which blood sugar levels are above standard. Diabetes can cause diabetic foot ulcers with several mechanisms. Usually the main cause of scarring is the lack of pain. Wounds of diabetic patients usually do not go well with the normal course of treatment and the inflammation of the wound lasts abnormally. Diabetic socks are designed to minimize foot injuries to people with diabetes, such as diabetic foot ulcers, and keep the feet dry and warm. Not all diabetic patients need diabetes socks. But a group of patients who have decreased back height (measured from the back of the foot to the back of the ankle), or their foot color and temperature have changed, or worn due to contact to socks, it is best to use diabetic instead of regular socks to protect the feet. Nowadays, due to the importance of the health of the feet, different methods such as the use of nanoparticles for socks are considered. Such socks do not cause an allergic reaction and do not harm the human body.
In nano-dimension, antibacterial effect of silver increases significantly, so that they are able to destroy over 650 bacterial species. With decreasing particle size, the release of silver ions increases, leading to increasing their antibacterial activities. Ag nanoparticles interact with sulfur and phosphorus compounds of membrane proteins affecting cell morphology and structure, causing its death.
