InventHelp Client Invents Germ Proof Footwear for Hospital Patients (ORD-2347)

Share Article

A leading inventor service firm, InventHelp is submitting the ASP SOCKS to companies in the hopes of their good faith review.

All too often, there are reports of illness and death as a result of hospital acquired infections. This is exactly what an inventor from Deltona, Fla., was concerned about when she pursued an idea that would protect patients against such danger.

She developed the patent-pending ASP SOCKS to reduce the incidence of hospital acquired infections like C Diff. As such, it inhibits the transfer of bacteria from hospital floors to patients. Besides preventing the spread of disease, it reduces the incidence of falls. Therefore, it has the potential to save lives and shorten hospital stays. As a result, it reduces hospital costs associated with treatment for infections not reimbursed by insurance. Also, it is comfortable, safe and easy to use. Additional advantages include convenience, effectiveness and affordable pricing.

The inventor’s professional experience inspired the idea. “Working as an infection control nurse, I treated many people who became seriously ill or died because of infections they contracted in the hospital. I wanted to reduce the risk of exposure to bacteria that could threaten the lives of hospital patients,” she said.

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