Buy hospital socks online

Non-slip hospital socks are widely used in hospitals, nursing homes and care homes. They particularly help the elderly and infirm to prevent unnecessary accidental falls happening to inpatients. However, non-slip hospital socks can be used to aid recovery from surgery or other medical reasons. Comfortable and easy to put on and take off, the non-slip socks are inexpensive and convenient for all healthcare providers and nursing homes.

Double tread socks with tread on both sides


Fall prevention socks, double tread in bright colours


These socks are available in many sizes, from small to fit a toddler through to 3XL (in double tread style) for adults with UK shoe size 13. Each size is colour-coded, making it quicker for nurses and carers to quickly find the right size in the storeroom.

View the size chart – please note that we strongly advise that you buy the next size up, for a comfortable fit. If you have swollen feet, you will need to size up to ensure your comfort and safety.

Double vs. Single Tread

Dependant on what you need, non-slip socks are available in single or double tread. Single tread socks have a non slip tread on the bottom of the foot. Whereas, double tread has this non slip tread on the bottom and top of the foot, so if the sock twists around the patient is always protected. If the patient is a high fall risk, we recommend double tread for peace of mind.
