New Socks Improve Patient Comfort and Health

Transcend now offers socks specifically designed to wear with orthoses. Conventional socks can be uncomfortable under devices, causing sweating, odor, infections, and athlete’s foot.

In contrast, Transcend socks made with high-quality X-static fabric provide patients with: 

  • Thermal Regulation: They improve moisture evaporation from the skin
  • Comfort and Fit: Socks are seamless and have no heel, ensuring a great fit on any size and shape of feet

Long-lasting Value: They stretch for comfort but retain excellent shape memory of their original specifications

X-STATIC Advantages

Transcend socks are made with an advanced fabric called X-STATIC. In this technology, silver is bonded to nylon threads, and silver ions are released by proximity to the skin during everyday wear.

These silver ions have antimicrobial properties, which inhibit the growth of bacteria and fungus. Additional benefits include: 

  • Reduced odor
  • Fewer infections
  • Control of athlete’s foot
  • Reduced skin irritation
  • Improved wound healing (by controlling surface contamination)

Available at Transcend

Transcend socks are available in multiple sizes for patients of all ages using many types of braces. Each pack contains one sock, which is convenient when only one brace is prescribed.

Encourage your patients to discuss their sock needs with a Transcend clinician. Transcend socks are recognized by a variety of insurance plans, with some exceptions and exclusions. 

Recommend Transcend socks to your patients for greater comfort and quality of life. They’ll thank you for it.
