KENT STATE UNIVERSITY DEPARTMENT OF FASHION, THE LIQUID CRYSTAL INSTITUTE AS WELL THE COLLEGE OF PODIATRIC MEDICINE HAVE DEVELOPED A FABRIC THAT HAN BE USED AS A SENSOR FOR DIABETICS.

PODIATRIST, DR. JILL KAWALEC STATES, "ANY INFLAMMATION, ANY INFECTION WILL CAUSE AN INCREASE IN TEMPERATURE, , SWELLING WILL CAUSE AN INCREASE IN TEMPERATURE, POOR  CIRCULATION WILL CAUSE A DECREASE IN TEMPERATURE AND ALL OF THESE THINGS CAN BE DETECTED BY THIS SOCK WE'RE DEVELOPING.  PATIENTS WOULD PUT THE SOCKS ON IN THE MORNING AND IF THEY NOTICE A CHANGE IN COLOUR, MOST LIKELY BLUE OR GREEN WHICH WOULD INDICATE HEAT, THEY WOULD KNOW TO CALL THEIR DOCTOR."
