ran_maThe global diabetes pandemic affects over 400 million people with 40% of them suffering from severe nerve damage. Due to this nerve damage, a small injury can become an ulcer, infection, gangrene and amputation. In the US, the cost of diabetic foot ulcers and amputations is $17b/year, which is more than the most expensive forms of cancer. Research has shown that temperature monitoring can prevent diabetic foot ulcers by 72%. Siren Smart Socks have temperature sensors embedded inside the fabric and the data is sent to the Siren App, alerting people to potential injury in realtime. Siren Smart Socks is a tool that can help people living with diabetes keep their mobility and live healthy and independent lives!
