In the latest edition of The Clinical Minute, Senior Clinical Education Specialist Liz Hillen, M.Ed., CPO, LPO, provides a quick overview of the Knit-Rite SmartKnit and Core-Spun by Therafirm AFO socks.
The Knit-Rite SmartKnit is an AFO and KAFO-friendly option for adult and children. Just like how a caterpillar spins its cocoon, SmartKnit socks are spun from the toe to the top. This results in a seamless, and wrinkle-free sock that fits like a second layer of skin. The soft antimicrobial fibers inhibit odor and wicks away moisture to keep patients feeling fresh all day.
Adult color options include white, black, grey, and charcoal. Pediatric color options include all the same colors, with the addition of pink, purple, and navy.
Core-Spun by Therafirm
The Knit-Rite Core-Spun by Therafirm socks are primarily used for pediatric and adult AFOs. Made form stretchy yarns enhance the socks’ durability, strength, and provides added thickness. Patterns available include Cheery AFO, Thin Line, Classic Diamond, and Halos 3-pack.
Knit-Rite's fun AFO-friendly socks are available on the SPS Online Store:
