What's the difference between double tread and fall prevention?
Double tread and fall prevention slipper socks are designed in the same way with tread on both the top and sole of the foot.
The reason for having the latex-free non-slip tread on both sides of the sock foot is to prevent falls, even if the sock slips around the foot in bed, or whilst walking there will always be some tread sticking to the floor.
However, the fall prevention socks are manufactured in bright colours for all sizes – to make it easy for nursing staff or care home staff to easily identify which patients or residents are most likely to fall. Double tread slipper socks are different in so much as they are colour coded by size, i.e. each size is a different colour for easy size recognition in a busy hospital ward or care home environment.
