Whether it's a product, a lifestyle change, or a conversation between doctor and patient, Omeza supports anything that helps prevent amputations. We give our focus to the months listed below to highlight the work of The Save A Leg, Save A Life Foundation by supporting the White Sock Campaign across the world. The campaign is a powerful yet simple message, that preventing amputation can start with a simple step -- an assessment by a doctor to answer the question: "Are you at risk?"

They look to accomplish these goals by using advanced evidence-based methods, by educating health care practitioners and patients, through community outreach, philanthropy and patient advocacy.
Incorporated as a non-profit organization in 2015, The Save A Leg, Save A Life Foundation was created to address issues pertaining to the ever-increasing diabetic population at local and international levels, including non-healing wounds, peripheral arterial disease and lower extremity amputation. Education, philanthropy and patient advocacy are the principles the Foundation has been built upon.
