Silipos Arthritis and Diabetic Gel Socks (Pair)
The Silipos Arthritis and Diabetic Gel Socks provide optimum protection for the neuropathic feet (nerve damaged feet caused by diabetes or arthritis). They help to reduce friction, abrasion, and shear forces while preventing the formation of calluses and foot ulceration.
The Silipos Arthritis and Diabetic Gel Socks also serve as soft tissue supplements or replacements for fat pad atrophy (the wearing thin of the fatty pad underneath the ball of the foot).
Who Can Benefit From The Silipos Arthritis and Diabetic Gel Socks
The Silipos Arthritis and Diabetic Gel Socks are suitable for:
- Atrophy of the fat pad
These single layer socks have a 1/16 inch (2mm) gel cushion running throughout the sole which provides pressure relief, pressure distribution and comfort, and can be used with or without diabetic shoes, making them incredibly versatile.
The Silipos Arthritis and Diabetic Gel Socks have a non restrictive cuff so as not to inhibit circulation and reduce the likelihood of ulcer formation.
Features and Benefits of the Silipos Arthritis and Diabetic Gel Socks
Silipos Arthritis and Diabetic Gel Socks are supplied in pairs, and are available in either black or white. The sock has a layer of fabric above and below the layer of gel for comfort and warmth.
Silipos gels easily conform to the body ensuring a comfortable fit that cushions and protects. Silipos gel products are made with mineral oil gels that provide cushioning protection with the added benefit of skin moisturising and conditioning when the gel is applied directly to the skin.
Silipos gels cushion and protect protect the body against impact, pressure and shear forces while simultaneously releasing moisture-rich mineral oil that gently hydrates, softens and conditions the skin without the use of additional creams or lotions.
Visco-elastic properties enable Silipos gels to move synergistically with the skin which prevents abrasion and discomfort.
All Silipos gels are clear, non-toxic and hypoallergenic.

Which Shoes Can I Use These Socks With?
These socks feature a thicker design to provide ultimate protection for the foot. Due to this, we recommend using the socks while wearing looser shoes, such as trainers.
Silipos Arthritis and Diabetic Gel Socks have a lifespan of approximately six months with average use and proper care. The ideal washing conditions are handwashed or machine washed at a low temperature, ideally on a low-intensity setting such as wool. The socks should be cleaned with a mild detergent and left to air dry.
