With Permara™ renewable antimicrobial protection, chlorine bleach is bound to the material at a molecular level and remains there until it comes in contact with a microbe. When it does, the microbe is quickly killed. The actual amount of chlorine bleach present is minute and safety studies have shown that there is no adverse effect resulting from skin contact.
Each time our high quality product is cleaned or laundered with EPA-registered chlorine bleach, such as Clorox® Regular-Bleach, the germ-fighting power is renewed like a rechargeable battery and the recharging capability lasts over the useful life of the product. Permara™ is a safe, yet highly effective solution to providing antimicrobial protection on our durable
Permara™, the renewable antimicrobial protection in FreshGear™ and Akeso™ socks is:
Powerful: Permara™ antimicrobial finishes and additives are able to prolong the 99.9% killing power of simple chlorine bleach in between your FreshGear™ and Akeso™ cleanings to protect against microbes and odors. Chlorine bleach is the most used and well proven broad spectrum antimicrobial agent.
Safe: Safety studies on fabric show that the benefits of microbe and odor reduction occur with no adverse effects on skin.
Renewable: Each time the material is cleaned with EPA-registered chlorine bleach, such as Clorox® Regular-Bleach, the 99.9% killing power is prolonged to eliminate bacteria, fungi, viruses, molds and odors on the material. This antimicrobial recharge ability lasts for the life of the material.
Environmentally friendly: Chlorine bleach, which is made from salt water and electricity, simply reverts to chloride (table salt) when exhausted. Permara™ contains no heavy metals such as silver or copper that can harm the environment.
Of all highly effective antimicrobials, chlorine bleach is the simplest and safest, with a spectrum of kill that spans all types of viruses, bacteria and fungi.
Permara™ antimicrobial protection works by permanently adhering onto the fiber of the socks, and attracting all the germ-fighting power of chlorine bleach through a patent pending process. Chlorine is an EPA-registered disinfectant and the active ingredient in chlorine bleach. It is approved to kill bacteria, viruses and fungi.
For this reason, Akeso™ socks are the lowest-cost option for a powerful broad spectrum antimicrobial solution to lower extremity wound care and prevention. They are simply the most affordable, effective and proactive protection available for diabetics and those who suffer from neuropathy, arthritis, edema and poor circulation.
Caring For Your Feet
Simple lifestyle changes can go a long way toward staying healthy with diabetes. Symptoms in the feet such as redness, tingling, and cuts that are not healing can lead to diabetic ulcers and even possible amputation without prompt medical care. Your visit to a podiatrist for a foot exam can help catch any potential lower limb complications early.
