The GripSox Non-Slip Safety Socks – Medical are anti-slip socks made to feel beautifully soft, warm and comfortable to wear.
The GripSox Medical socks have a higher length than the anklet model GripSox that sit just below the ankle bone. You can wear them on their own, and also in place of regular socks (inside shoes) as they are made from 95% cotton making them very breathable.
They are machine washable and designed to withstand high temperature laundering. In addition to this, they have been independently clinically trialed and are a proven ‘falls prevention’ product.
All GripSox socks are ideal for walking on tiles, floorboards, wet areas such as bathrooms and laundries, and outdoor areas. You can also use them for general comfort and warmth for your feet. Being non-slip, they are perfect to wear for Dancing, Yoga, Pilates or Indoor Sports. These are activities often played or performed on slippery floors; surfaces that can be quite difficult to stop yourself from slipping and sliding on.
Stretch Top Medical GripSox are currently already in use in over 150 Hospitals and Care facilities. Staff and carers find these Gripsox prevent unnecessary injuries as their patients are steadier in their feet. They will provide an added sense of confidence, security and peace of mind knowing that no matter what the surface of the floor is, the GripSox / Non-Slip safety socks will keep you steady on your feet. Whether the floor is slippery or moist; or if your balance or movement is not the best.
These “RED” coloured GripSox have been specifically designed to help hospital and carer staff visually identify people who have been assessed as a high risk for falls.
