Charcot neuroarthropathy (CN) is a progressive disease that is a severe and costly complication in persons with diabetic peripheral neuropathy (DPN). CN can result in hospitalization, ulceration, deformity, loss of mobility, infection, and amputation. For persons with DPN, diagnosis and monitoring of CN can be difficult. This is often due to failure to recognize the signs of the disease, or misdiagnosis due to comorbidities. Continuous temperature
monitoring is a promising technology to assist with the early diagnosis, and monitoring of CN.

In this report we introduce sensor-embedded socks designed for home use and daily wear, which
perform continuous temperature monitoring of the plantar surface of the foot. The aim of this study was to assess the accuracy of the socks, obtain user feedback on how comfortable socks were for home use, and examine whether observed temperatures correlated with clinical observations for persons with CN.
