SenseGo smart socks have multiple sensors that monitor pressure from poor posture, over-exertion, or ill-fitting shoes, all which could lead to diabetic foot ulcers. Pressure points are registered as electrical signals, and relayed to an app which informs the patient of a developing risk.
The washable sensor socks, developed by Hebrew University professor Yaakov Nahmias, can compensate for damaged nerve sensations, providing patients with data on pain that they are unable to feel. Failure to treat these issues could lead to foot ulcers, sores, or wounds that do not heal, hence the benefit of this “early warning” system.
