The Original GripSox® – Safety Socks
GripSox® is the world’s leading form of independently, clinically-trialed non-slip, grip socks. GripSox® has established itself as an internationally recognized brand and a leader in falls prevention.
One clinical trial comparing GripSox®’s standard socks and bare feet was conducted at John Fawkner Private Hospital (JFPH) in Melbourne, which showed a 73 percent reduction in patient falls.
The trial, which used the company’s REDuce Falls Sox® product as part of the hospital’s High Falls Risk Management Protocol, reduced the hospital’s falls rate from 7.15 falls per 1,000 bed days down to 1.80 falls.
The success of the trial eventuated in JFPH winning the 2010 Healthscope Service Recognition Award for Quality Improvement.
