Eculage™ Diabetic Socks


A Breakthrough in Diabetic Hosiery

Skin infections of the diabetic foot

Patients with diabetes are particularly susceptible to foot infection because they often lose the protective sensations for temperature and pain, which decreases awareness of trauma and foreign body penetration. Once the skin is broken, the underlying tissue is exposed to pathogenic organism infection that can lead to a more severe and deeper infection.

The most common symptoms include fungal and bacterial skin infection, nail disease, and diabetic dermopathy. Other less commonly observed conditions include rash with reddish bumps, reddening of the soles, vesicles, and ulcers.

Fungal infection, although relatively inconspicuous, is a very common foot problem in diabetics. People with diabetes are nearly 3–5 times more likely to develop nail infection and tinea pedis (skin infection).

Fungal infection virtually always begins on the skin on the sole of the foot and spreads to other parts of the foot. The inter-digital areas of the foot can also harbor infections. Typically, fungal infection produces little in the way of symptoms and often goes unnoticed, mistaken for dry skin, as the normal epidermal skin water content of 15% drops and the skin becomes dry and loses resilience. This dry skin condition, which is common in diabetic patients, predisposes an individual to fissuring and cracking of the epidermis, which, in turn, can lead to secondary infections of the foot.

This is further aggravated by the neuropathy that is common in many diabetic patients. Thus, fungal infections, when left untreated, reduce skin integrity and leave it vulnerable to secondary infection through fissures and splits and to the spread of the bacterial infection to just below the skin surface. An untreated infection may spread to the lymphatic system, the lymph nodes and the bloodstream, or into deeper tissues.

ANTI-MICROBIAL AND SKIN ENHANCEMENT

Copper is an essential mineral in the human body that has been used for health and wellness for thousands of years. With its two distinct properties – broad-spectrum anti-microbial efficacy (proven against fungi, bacteria, and viruses) and skin enhancement (up-regulating collagen, elastin, and other proteins) – copper is an optimal element to improve a diabetic patient’s health and well being

COMFORTABLE AND NON-BINDING

Eculage™ Diabetic Copper Socks, based on Cupron scientifically proven technology, are non-binding and comfortable. The tops are loose-fitting to ensure they WON’T cut into your skin. There are NO prominent seams to prevent rubbing even after a long day on your feet.

MOISTURE WICKING AND HYPO-ALLERGENIC

The hypo-allergenic blend of fabrics draws sweat and moisture away from the skin helping to keep your feet feeling dry and comfortable, reducing friction that can cause blisters and minor abrasions.

EXTRA PADDED BUT NOT EXTRA BIG

Eculage™ Diabetic Copper Socks, based on Cupron scientifically proven patented technology, are extra padded in the toes and heels and the carefully contoured material maintains shoe size, which means they won’t take up too much space- simply order according to your shoe size.

SCIENTIFICALLY FORMULATED

A wealth of scientific data has gone into the creation of Cupron’s Diabetic Copper Based Socks making Eculage™ Socks one of the leading products on the diabetic’s medical market in innovation and effectiveness.

CUPRON TECHNOLOGY

Eculage™ Diabetic Socks, based on the scientifically proven Cupron® proprietary technology that integrates copper into fabrics, surfaces and other polymers with applications for everyone from medical professionals to consumers. When embedded in socks, the regular socks are transformed to an essential device that protects the diabetics’ feet in addition to it being anti-odor and improving the skin appearance.

THE POWER OF COPPER

Enhanced Wound Healing

Copper is an essential mineral in the human body that has been used for health and wellness for thousands of years. With its two distinct properties – broad-spectrum anti-microbial efficacy (proven against fungi, bacteria, and viruses) and skin enhancement (up-regulating collagen, elastin, and other proteins) – copper is an optimal element to protect the soldiers’ skin health.

Copper has two key properties that are being exploited in consumer and medical device products in the last decade. On the one hand, copper has potent biocidal properties. On the other hand, copper is involved in numerous physiological and metabolic processes critical for the appropriate functioning of almost all tissues in the human body. Copper plays a key role in the synthesis and stabilization of skin proteins, and it also has potent biocidal properties.

Enhanced Wound Healing

The presence of copper in a wound dressing was proven to enhance wound closure and to increase blood vessel formation in a diabetic mice model (compared with a commercial wound dressing containing silver and a standard dressing).

Diabetic Foot Fungal Infections

Diabetic patients are at a high risk for developing fungal infections. Cupron outperformed in its anti- fungal activity against a range of commercially available silver technologies (see graph).

Reducing the Risk of Skin Pathologies

Reducing the risk of skin pathologies in diabetics by using copper impregnated socks: Diabetic individuals frequently suffer from skin pathologies, especially in their feet. Co-existing peripheral vascular disease and neuropathy exacerbate the capacity of these individuals to cope with infections, minor cuts and wounds, often leading to hard to treat and chronic ulcers.

USE THE UNIQUE PROPERTIES OF COPPER TO PROTECT YOURSELF

CUPRON®

Cupron® is a patented copper-based antimicrobial technology that harnesses the unique properties of copper for healthcare applications. Unlike topically applied solutions, the embedded copper technology does not wash or rub off, even when repeatedly subjected to the industrial laundering process, with high temperatures, high pH values, long cycles, and harsh chemicals.

COMFORT

The socks are designed with heel and toe padding for extra cushioning comfort, and a seamless toe to prevent pressure and stress on the skin. Using the socks does not require any change to your regular shoe size.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS

Even better, Eculage™ Diabetic Copper Socks are easy to take care of! They are machine washable and tumble dryer friendly. Just don’t bleach them or use cleaning products containing silicone.

HUMANITARIAN HELP TO TRAPPED CHILEAN MINERS

In 2010 the world followed the amazing story of the 33 Chilean miners who were trapped in a collapsed mine, almost 2000 feet underground for 69 days. The physical conditions they encountered in the mine – dirt, high temperature and high humidity – were an ideal environment for fungal and bacterial growth. Therefore, the condition of their health, in general, and the condition of their skin, in particular, was a paramount concern.
Cupron Enhanced socks were supplied to the trapped miners through the capsule on day 36 of their ordeal and protected them until their rescue.
