When measuring the foot, measure from the tip of the big toe to just above the ankle. Then compare that measurement to the “Sock full length” shown in the size guide above. Please note that the size names can be misleading – they are the size names and sizes required by the NHS. So please do measure the sock wearer’s foot before purchasing.
Please note that the size shown is suitable for non-swollen feet. If you are buying slipper socks for feet that may be swollen, we recommend you order the next size up from the usual shoe size.
For patients who are at a higher risk of falling over can wear fall prevention socks in bright red to highlight the extra risk to nurses and carers. Popular as non slip socks for the elderly in hospital, at home and in care homes. The non-slip tread is on top of the foot and on the sole of the foot. Therefore, even if the sock twists around, the patient is still protected from falling. Most importantly, these unisex stretchy socks are comfortable when worn as non slip socks for the elderly. Please note that these are not launderable. These slipper socks are designed to be patient specific.
Please note that the size shown in the Data Sheet (below) relates to the size of non-swollen feet. However, if you are buying slipper socks for swollen feet, we recommend you order a larger size.
