THE SEAL OF ACCEPTANCE
Reflexa® Diabetic received The Seal of Acceptance from the American Podiatric Medical Association- a professional medical organization representing Doctors of Podiatric Medicine (podiatrists) within the United States. The Seal of Acceptance confirms that Reflexa Diabetic has been officially demonstrated to be beneficial to foot health.
The APMA Seal of Acceptance is a certificate evaluating materials, footwear, insoles, hosiery and equipment. In order to attain The APMA Seal of Acceptance, companies are obliged to present:
• Research documentation for each product
• Information on intended use
• Detail patents and composition
• Evidence of quality control procedures
Each committee member then conducts a thorough scientific evaluation of the product. The committee then sends its recommendations to the APMA Board of Trustees, which has the authority to either accept them or reject them.
Products which lack documentation to support claims, are primarily cosmetic, do not allow for normal foot function, or do not promote good foot health, cannot qualify for the Seal.
Reflexa® Diabetic was successful in all tests and evaluations, and can now proudly bear the APMA Seal of Acceptance!
The CE mark is a mandatory conformity mark for many products placed on the market in Europe, and it is also recognized in other countries. The CE marking certifies that a product has met EU consumer safety, health or environmental requirements.
Reflexa® Diabetic complies with the requirements for a Medical Device Class I:

The certificate of conformity with the requirements of the 93/42/EEC – Medical Device Directive has been obtained by a Notified Body.
STANDARDS FOR WORKING EQUIPMENT
Reflexa® Anti-Static has been tested according to the test method described in the relevant section of the European standards for protective clothing, SIST EN 1149-1:2006 and SIST EN 1149-2:1998. These two standards determine test methods and requirements for accurate measurement of surface and vertical electrical resistance of the material.
The report on examination and testing of Reflexa® Anti-Static shows that the material from which these socks are made has a surface resistivity and volume resistivity lower then 1,98•105 Ω and volume resistivity lower then 1•104 Ω and thus meets requirements for electrostatic conductive material.
