SAN FRANCISCO – Health technology company Siren has launched a sock using its Neurofabric material to detect diabetic foot ulcers. The sock continuously monitors foot temperature so people can detect signs of inflammation, a method that is clinically proven to be the most effective way of catching foot injuries, and is up to 87% more effective at preventing diabetic foot ulcers than standard diabetic foot care. “We built this technology because foot ulcers are the most common, costly and deadly complication for people with diabetes, yet there was no way to continuously monitor for these massive problems,” said Ran Ma, CEO and co-founder of Siren, in a statement. “Our Neurofabric has endless applications across health care, sports, military and fashion, but it was obvious to us that solving this specific problem is where we had to start, because it impacts so many and can mean the difference between losing a limb or not.” Siren has also announced it has raised $3.4 million in seed funding.
