The Socksess project is looking to understand the needs and preferences of people with diabetes in relation to managing their foot health.

Feedback from these interviews will be used to create a smart-sensing sock designed to help people with diabetes be more aware of how much pressure they put on their feet and prevent ulcers.

It is being carried out by a team of researchers at the University of Southampton.
