Designed for people with Charcot foot and other midfoot problems, the GlideWear Midfoot Protection Sock reduces the harmful friction and shear that causes diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs), calluses, and skin breakdown.
Comfort Meets Protection
The Midfoot Protection sock combines the comfort of a seamless SmartKnit diabetic sock with the protection of GlideWear’s patented low-friction fabric. The non-binding top fits comfortably around the ankle and calf, and can stretch to accommodate people with diabetes and edema. The result is a comfortable, breathable sock that protects your midfoot from the friction and shear that cause ulcers, blisters, and calluses.
The Cost of a Diabetic Foot Ulcer
Diabetic foot ulcers can lead to months in a walking boot or, worse, partial foot amputation. Ulcers, which often start out as calluses or redness, can go from non-existent to debilitating in a very short time. They’re especially common in people with reduced sensation in their feet, including those diabetic neuropathy, and Charcot foot syndrome.
Diabetic foot ulcers can reduce mobility and quality of life. A diabetic foot ulcer can take months — or even years — to heal. During those months, someone with a diabetic foot ulcers is often in walking boot or cast.
