Best Non-Slip Socks 2019

Thursday, 20 December 2018

Care homes and hospitals will often use a plastic type material covering the base layer on the floor; while this is very hygienic, it can also be slippery for those who are less mobile. Indoor activities such as yoga and Pilates are often done in sports halls, where the floor too tends to be slippery. A solution to anyone who spends time slipping and sliding across the floor is non-slip socks, an increasingly popular type of sock that uses textured soles to provide grip without using shoes.

Hospital Floors Can be Slippery to Those Less Mobile

Here at Health and Care we have plenty of non-slip socks. Some are designed for serious use inside hospitals and care homes, and others can help you out in yoga, or around the house. If you're wondering which non-slip socks are suited to you, well you're in luck, as we've compiled this list of our Best Non-Slip Socks to help you make your decision.

Best Non-Slip Socks for the Elderly

Medline One Size Fits Most Double Tread RED Hospital Slipper Socks (Pair)The elderly are most at risk in hospitals of slipping, which is why the Medline One Size Fits Most Double Tread RED Hospital Slipper Socks are a top choice among our non-slip socks. Used in hospitals across the UK, the Medline Double Tread Slipper Socks feature a special grip surface that prevents slipping even when walking in slippery environments.

They act as a cross between slippers and socks, providing outstanding comfort for most individuals who try them. With grip on all sides of the socks in case of twisting, these socks promise enhanced safety for those less mobile in hospitals and care homes.

Don't Take the Risk

We recommend that if you do struggle with slipping yourself, or you take part in indoor activities such as yoga and Pilates, that you buy yourself a pair of non-slip socks. Slipping can cause a serious injury particularly if you're older or struggle with mobility, and with these products you can help to minimise the risk.
