Knitted compression sock for reducing heel pain

mtxnov20 fig4A knitted compression foot garment that is claimed to reduce heel pain has been developed by ING Source of Hickory, North Carolina, USA. The sock incorporates first and second high-compression zones, and a compression-release zone between them.

The first high-compression zone applies circumferential compression to the foot below the plantar fascia between the calcaneus and metatarso-phalangeal joints and generally around the midfoot.
