Socks for Elderly, Disabled or Diabetic
Non-skid socks or anti-slip socks reduce chances of accidental slips and falls. Silverts’ best-selling diabetic socks have grips on the bottom, similar to the treads on shoes though not as stiff. They are great for fall prevention and especially for loved ones in hospitals and facilities who aren’t always monitored. Silverts’ adaptive socks for seniors and disabled people provide preventative measures with their anti-slip features.
Non-slip versions are also great for people with arthritis, disabilities, edema, swollen feet or lowered mobility. The use of non-skid diabetic socks in hospitals is very important because it helps reduce chances of slips and falls.
Made from a cotton blend knit, the socks are available in three different adult sizes that stretch to accommodate most feet and ankles. Though they are wide socks, they are still comfortably snug and 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.
The anti-slip soles are made of a durable silicone tread, hence they’re perfect for patients in hospitals, post-surgery, nursing homes, retirement homes and home care. Non-skid socks benefit the patients as well as the caregivers who are taking care of seniors.
Silverts’ diabetic non-skid socks come in a variety of neutral colors so that they’re versatile enough for any outfit.
Rubber Grips on the Soles
Multiple Sizes and Colors
Silverts provides a number of other footwear options that have the same slip-resistant sole. These range from booties to full shoes.
Silverts’ booties are a great solution if your loved one wants one step above socks but doesn’t want a full slipper or shoe. The bootie has incredible adjustability and an easy touch closure that opens up. In cases of extreme swelling, getting a sock on might feel near impossible, even with great stretch. If this is an issue, our adaptive shoes made for swollen feet are a great option to make an even larger opening to get swollen feet into.
