Each year, U.S. emergency rooms treat over 2.2 million people suffering from a fall injury. 25% of these injuries require hospitalization.
CONCORD, CA (PRWEB) March 06, 2018
Bay Alarm Medical (https://www.BayAlarmMedical.com), a leading supplier of senior medical alert systems, today announced that it is giving a free pair of Bombas Gripper socks to customers who purchase the company's In-Home / GPS medical alert bundle.
Grippers are a new line of super comfortable ankle socks from Bombas, that feature slip-resistant PVC grips on their soles. Originally designed to reduce the risk of slipping during a gym or yoga workout, the socks can also reduce the risk of senior falling injuries.
"Most seniors don't wear shoes in their home," says Alan Wu, Marketing Director of Bay Alarm Medical. "Bombas socks are a comfortable alternative that improves home safety."
Wu says that each year, U.S. emergency rooms treat over 2.2 million people suffering from a fall injury. 25% of these injuries require hospitalization. Seniors who experience a fall are twice as likely to have a repeat fall in the future.
"For a senior, an accident such as a fall can be as debilitating as a heart attack or a stroke," says Wu. "We want to do all we can to prevent that fall."
For years Bay Alarm Medical has given a free pair of Bombas socks to each customer purchasing its In-Home / GPS medical alert bundle. With the release of the new Grippers socks, Bay Alarm Medical is offering the most slip-resistant socks available.
The In-Home / GPS medical alert bundle allows customers to have an in-home medical alert system as well as a GPS Mobile Help button. The bundle ensures that seniors get coverage from America's top-rated medical alert system whether they are at home or out and about.
In line with the Bombas mission of One Pair Purchased = One Pair Donated, for each pair of Grippers given to customers, Bay Alarm Medical and Bombas will make a matching donation to the "Socks In the City Program" at St. Anthony's Foundation of San Francisco, helping the city's homeless population.
This latest effort builds on other humanitarian projects carried out by Bay Alarm Medical and Bombas. The two companies have in the past donated socks to victims of Hurricane Harvey.
Founded in 2013, Bombas is a collection of highly functional and fashionable athletic-leisure socks with a philanthropic mission. After discovering socks are the #1 most requested clothing item in homeless shelters, founders Randy Goldbergand David Heath established the brand's mission to donate a pair of socks for every pair sold. Each sock is constructed using Bombas Sock Tech, comprised of seven substantial ways to improve the comfort, performance and design of the athletic sock. The collection is currently available on http://www.Bombas.com in a variety of bold colors and neutral solid for men, women and kids.
