A report by five Japanese university students that details the reasons why socks
may slip down a wearer's leg has been discovered by a national newspaper.
Several parts of the 2006 study, accurately named Prevention from Slipping Down of Top Parts of Socks, were published by The Guardian which detailed the study of 10 males who walked on a running machine to test what could prevent legwear
The study's prologue added: "With changing stitches of leg and heel parts partly in the socks
, pressure values of top parts of socks
during walking experiment are measured, and the slippage of the top are evaluated."
Ultimately, the five engineers used a "semantic differential method" to publish their results - a seven-sided geometric shape that links factors in leggings such as slippage, tightness and comfort.
Another recent study on Canada.com noted that socks
were a better method to help blood thinning to prevent clots, noting that many women taking warfarin medication could stop their prescription.
