Footwear for women with ALS / Shoes and slippers for ALS men

What is Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)? How can an adult’s mobility be affected by ALS?

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a disease affecting neurons or nerve cells that are responsible for voluntary muscle action. The disease is the degeneration of the motor neurons connecting the brain to the spinal cord. In other words, the cells that go from the brain to tell the spine what to do stop working. ALS is also known as motor neurone disease (MND) or Lou Gehrig’s disease. ALS is a progressive disease that causes the individual to experience muscle weakness, reduced motor function, which is the ability to move and which lead to paralysis at a later stage of ALS.

Although they have not found a cure for ALS yet, scientists are always working towards finding a cure. Doctor's have found two main forms of als. The first one being familial als, which is hereditary, or passed down through a gene. The other form of als is sporadic als, this is where doctors aren't sure what the cause is. Current treatment processes and medication is available to slow the disease and to provide the best life you possibly can.

Silvert’s ALS footwear is ideal for ALS patients suffering from any of the following:

  • Fatigue and weakness in feet, ankles, hands and wrists
  • Muscles stiffness and cramps
  • Lowered mobility and manual dexterity

When you are living with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, finding the appropriate shoes or slippers may not be very easy. Silvert’s offers a wide range of comfortable and struggle-free footwear for ALS patients.

No lace & Easy-Touch Closures

With Silvert’s slip-on shoes and slippers, putting on footwear has never been easier. No need to struggle with those traditional shoes with shoe laces. Silvert’s uses features designed to resolve your daily footwear challenge, when you being to lose the ability of tying up laces. Silvert's footwear offers large openings, to allow for feet to slide into shoes with ease, but still have a back to them. This is done to give the ease of a slip on shoe, but still providing support and stability to the wearer. Easy touch closures allow the shoes and slippers incredible adjustability. This is important in ALS patients to allow them to continue to dress independently if they are able. If the disease progresses the large openings are incredibly helpful to a caregiver putting the shoes on.

Non-Skid Slipper Socks & Outsoles

Non skid non slip slippers, slipper socks and grip soles on shoes give adults and seniors living with ALS additional grip for their feet and help avoid a potential slip or fall. It can be helpful to have both slipper socks as well as grip on the soles of your shoes. Socks are great for night time trips to the washroom, and for times that you only need to go short distances. Shoes with grip on the soles are important for individuals who are still walking. This will not only prevent slips and falls but will promote walking and stability. Grip on the bottom of the shoes will help the individual propel themselves forward. For advanced patients with ALS who are wheelchair bound, Silvert’s anti-slip shoes and slippers will help keep their feet on the wheelchair footrest at all times. These soles are especially important for individuals living in assisted living environments. Often it is the rule to wear footwear with grip on the bottom as apart of fall prevention programs.

Lightweight

One of the major symptoms of ALS at its early stage is muscles weakness. Silvert's is constantly working on new materials and technology to make the soles of every shoe as light as possible. Lightweight shoes will take an extreme amount of stress off of the weakened muscles. This can help with any treatment for ALS and any strength building and aerobic exercise, especially if you are participating in clinical trials. Light weight footwear should be incorporated at all times, whether it be slippers, shoes or even winter boots.

Support

Silvert's has a number of levels of support in all of our shoes and slippers. You may pick from memory foam soles in slippers, for a perfect comfort while indoors. To removable insoles in our orthopedic friendly shoes. Removable insoles are helpful if you need a specific height or level of comfort versus support. With the added depth to our shoes you can be confident in placing even the thickest support insoles into the shoe and still having room for your feet. Finally, Silvert's provides footwear with a slight added heel. This heel helps in propelling the foot and body forward. As well it helps in providing stability against the feeling of falling backwards. Even if the individual is not walking, a heel is important even in standing during transferring.

Silvert’s ALS footwear is ideal for nursing homes, assisted living facilities, retirement complexes as well as home care. At Silvert’s we want to make sure that you and your loved ones experience the maximum level of footwear comfort and safety. We do this through slip resistant footwear, to aid with stability and fall prevention. Lightweight materials to allow for the least amount of strain from muscle weakness. Finally, hook and loop closures are added to footwear to ensure the most ease putting footwear on from an assisted dressing stand point as well as individual dressing stand point.
