Non-skid or anti-slip socks are essential to preventing seniors from falling. Silvert’s best-selling diabetic socks have grips on the bottom, similar to the treads on shoes though not as stiff. Especially for loved ones in hospitals and facilities who aren’t always monitored, preventative measures like slip-resistant adaptive accessories can offer piece of mind. Non-slip versions are also great for people with arthritis, disabilities, edema, lowered mobility. The effectiveness of non-slip socks in hospitals is worth mentioning because seniors and /or patients want to feel safe and secure, especially when they are sick. The use of non slip socks in hospitals is very important because it helps reduces chances of slips and falls.
Made from a cotton blend knit, the socks are available in 3 different adult sizes that stretch to accommodate most feet and ankles. Though they are comfortably snug, they do not restrict circulation. The seamless toe closure adds additional comfort for those with swollen feet as a result of diabetes, edema, or other conditions.
