|Official title||Evaluation of Foot Pressure in Volunteers Wearing Socks Weaved With Pressure Reducing Soles|
|Principal investigator||Uri Givon, MD|
|Description||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.
