Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) August 29, 2014

Floors of hospitals and other medical facilities tend to be slippery, especially when wearing socks. Also, many patients are relegated to lying down or sitting due to ambulatory problems, poor balance, surgery recovery, Alzheimer’s, etc. Two inventors from Perrysburg, Ohio, have designed the patent-pending Safe-T-Socks in order to optimize patient safety.

This special pair of socks helps prevent slips and falls on medical-facility floors. It also keeps patients who are relegated to beds or chairs from standing and walking around if unsafe, which avoids injuries. In addition, it allows for effective monitoring by medical staff and self-monitoring. The socks can be produced in design variations.

The original design was submitted to the Bingham Farms office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
