Increased pressure in weight bearing areas of the foot, especially in insensate feet may lead to the development of pressure sore. The creation of socks with pressure relieving areas by special weaving technique may prevent the development of these complications.
Three (3) volunteers will be examined walking on a Tekscan pressure mat, barefoot and then wearing socks weaved in a new technique, from cotton, nylon and acrilan.
