Today at the PFA Symposium in Atlanta, GA, Aetrex Worldwide, Inc. will introduce its new innovative Copper Sole Sock.

"As one of the leading foot health companies in the industry, we believe it's imperative to stay on top of industry trends," says CEO Larry Schwartz. "We aim to remain one step ahead with our new technologies and footwear products."

The antimicrobial properties of copper have been known for thousands of years. It is used today as a fungicide and bactericide treatment. Yet unlike some anti-bacterial textile treatments, bacteria have never formed a resistance to copper.

In a 2004-2005 study, Dr. Richard C. Zatcoff, DPM, tracked the foot health of 51 patients, including 21 with diabetes. His study showed that patients wearing Copper Sole Socks had significant improvement in the appearance and texture of their skin, particularly around their toes and the soles of their feet. "Our new Aetrex Socks, with Copper Sole Technology is not just another sock, it can actually help improve your foot health," adds Schwartz.

Copper socks rejuvenate the skin to improve appearance and can offer 99.9% prevention of bacteria and fungi to control odor. In addition, the socks wick away moisture to keep feet healthy, cool and dry.

The line includes athletic, non-binding, dress/casual and compression support styles. For additional information on Copper Sole Socks, please visit http://www.aetrex.com/copper or contact Lateefah Viley-Simpson at 800-526-2739 x216.
