Best Non-Slip Socks 2020
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.
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.

Don't Take the Risk
