Siren Diabetes Socks To Help You Manage Your Diabetes
Consumer Electronics Show (CES) 2018 just took place and Siren Diabetic Socks scooped an award for being one of the best innovations.
In a bid to help people through the power of prevention, siren smart diabetic socks help detect problems before they become big ones. These socks help prevent foot ulceration in an effort to prevent and reduce amputations in diabetics through early recognition of ulcerative and pre-ulcerative areas. Thanks to these socks, you can easily keep tabs on any kind of injury and inflammation in real time, all from your feet.
Diabetic Foot swelling is common in both type I and type II diabetes and this can serve as a prelude to serious problems. Therefore, early detection is vital and this is where these cozy socks come into play. Siren Care’s socks use temperature sensors that are woven into the fabric to detect temperature changes. Co-founders veronica Tran and Ran Ma believe they’ve created a novel solution to a serious problem.
How Do Siren Diabetic Socks Work?
Temperature sensors embedded in the socks monitor temperature changes from 6 spots on the feet and transmit them via BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) to a smartphone. The temperature at each of these specific spots is compared between your feet and if there’s a significant difference, you’ll receive an alert on your smartphone. This helps to reduce false alarms.
Data collected by the socks is stored on your phone and in the cloud in order to ensure that you can monitor your health from any source and from anywhere. Anytime the wearables detect a high-temperature difference, they send data to its companion smart app which will alert you to the potential issue and prompt you to check your feet. This could be as simple as a shoelace that is tucked to your shoe and you can’t feel it and you can easily get injuries from that.
How Long do These Socks Last?
Each wearable lasts 6 months and once you take them off they go to sleep mode to avoid wasting energy. Moreover, they can be thrown to the wash without destroying the sensors and their smart capabilities. According to Ma, the SirenSmart Textile technology can incorporate a wide range of electronics and sensors, including pressure sensors, moisture sensors, light sensors, RFIDs, BLE, MCU, LED’s, etc. seamlessly into fabric.
How Should I Use and Care for the Socks?
Siren Diabetic Socks are sold in a pack of seven pairs to ensure that you have a clean pair of socks each day. Moreover, the socks are waterproof and thus dryer safe and machine washable. You can either connect the sensor data to your smartphone or buy a Siren Plug that you can plug into a wall outlet.
The Siren Plug sends data wirelessly to your wearables to a team of professionals who will notify you of any injuries or potential injuries by texting or calling you. The batteries should last the six months you use the socks without need for replacement. You need to purchase another pack of socks after 6 months.
These socks are designed to comfortably fit your feet and guarantee the highest comfort. They are produced using Neurofabric technology and they feature a padded footbed that cushions the soles of your feet. They are also non-binding to ensure optimum circulation. These socks can be worn at any time with or without shoes just like a normal sock. They can also be worn when exercising.
Is the sock lumpy?
The anklet disk and embedded sensors do not make the socks lumpy because the temperature sensors are incorporated into the fabric and they are designed to send data to the Siren Plug or thee companion app in your phone. The anklet on the sock holds the BLE chip and battery. The anklet has a thin profile and is designed to cover the smallest surface area possible.
Right now Siren Care is calling for all interested parties to join the company’s wait list in order to be among the first to purchase and try their Siren diabetic socks.
