The Multiple Sclerosis Socks have been developed using VOXX HPT (Human Performance Technology). They are meant for people who have difficulty with balance, stability, coordination, or range of motion. This might include elderly adults, and people with back pain or neurological diseases such as MS. These socks work immediately to improve the individual's strength, their range of motion, and their balance. MS Socks were developed by Jay Dhaliwal, who also founded the company Voxx Life which markets and sells the socks. He developed the idea for the MS Socks after his mother was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis.
The cost of Multiple Sclerosis Socks is $40.00 plus $9.95 shipping, for a total price of $49.95.

The technology behind the way the sock functions is called Human Performance Technology. There's a raised pattern on the bottom of the sock close to the toes. It interacts with some of the sensory receptors on the bottom of the feet, and in doing so improves the user's balance and stability. The sock is just the vehicle through which this technology is implemented. This technology has been proven scientifically to be effective in reducing pain, increasing energy, improving posture and balance, and extending mobility.
These socks are made out of special nano-tech yarn which prevents blisters from forming on the feet and protects them against bacteria. They are very warm and comfortable, and they're also water-proof.
These socks have an ankle hinge, whose purpose is to improve the range of motion of the wearer. This is particularly helpful for people whose range of motion has become quite limited. It really improves the quality of life of the wearer.
At the top of the sock, there's a soft touch gentle elastic which encircles the sock and prevents it from sliding down the wearer's leg or drooping.
The ergonomic Y-heel is designed to stop the heel from sliding out of place while wearing the sock.
The arch has been specially engineered to provide greater support and stability to the wearer.
Lateral stability or balance is the key to functional movement. For example, elderly people who have weak lateral stability are at risk of having a fall. The MS socks dramatically improve lateral stability. They begin working immediately after the wearer puts them on to correct this issue.
Dynamic stability is the key to our gait control. It is key to how we walk, run, or stand. Improved dynamic stability will decrease the chance of an elderly person falling. The MS socks will increase dynamic stability. This has been demonstrated under controlled conditions many times.
The socks activate the sensory receptors and this has the effect of increasing the range of motion. Naturally, that will greatly expand the number of activities that the wearer is able to do for themselves. This can really increase their feeling of expanded independence.
The socks have been scientifically tested to determine whether they would be effective in treating diabetic pain, and they passed. So these MS socks are certified as being able to treat this problem.
These socks are incredibly helpful for people who have low energy levels, or who have trouble getting energized. They do greatly increase energy, allowing people to be more productive at work and in their personal lives. Every customer who reported their results back to the company said that their energy levels had really increased.
There have been numerous testimonials by customers extolling the virtues of this product, and many of them have carried out live demonstrations on video. These were often customers who had MS, or who suffered from some other kind of movement difficulties. By all accounts, they all said that the product worked very well and that it had really improved the quality of their lives.
The MS socks have been endorsed by several chiropractors, who have recommended them to patients with back pain and other movement issues. They have been fairly adamant about how effective these socks really are and how they could improve their patients' lives.
You can either pick and choose when you wear these socks and when you don't, or you may find that they dictate what you wear outside of the house. It's not really possible to wear a dress or skirt with these socks on, especially pulled all the way up the way they're meant to be. So in the name of comfort and range of motion, women may find themselves wearing pants quite often.
These socks are very expensive, especially compared to the competitors. Granted, most of the less expensive socks don't have the same technology as these ones do, and are basically just compression socks that help prevent blood clots. The socks may well be worth the cost. However, some people are going to refuse to pay that much money for a pair of socks.
Due to the cost, it would also be difficult to buy more than one or two pairs. That means you may end up doing an awful lot of laundry if you want to wear these socks every day.
The socks aren't ugly, but none of the color or pattern options are particularly nice or special. It's true that the main point of these socks is the technology, but for this price, they could have come up with some classier possibilities.
Socks made of yarn are going to be far too hot to wear in the summer, and perhaps even some days in the spring. This is a material that gets quite heated up inside. Some customers mentioned this point in reviews.
MS Socks use human performance technology as a method of improving people's balance, stability, coordination, pain, and low energy. The socks are the vehicle which delivers the performance-enhancing technology. On the bottom of the sock, there is an orange strip across the material. It includes a pattern of raised material which corresponds to certain sensory points on the base of the foot. The bottom of the feet are very sensitive, and they are filled with receptors that correspond to different parts of the body. Stimulating specific receptors leads to the response in the body, which is stability, balance, coordination, and pain control.
There are really no competitors in terms of this specific, proprietary technology developed by Jay Dhaliwal. The other similar-type socks available are compression socks with no special technology beyond the compression. They are meant to increase circulation, lower the chance of injuring yourself, and preventing blood clots. Multiple Sclerosis Socks really are a very unique product in the market, and apparently a very helpful and effective product.
