Direct Textile Store offers socks for a variety of needs. We carry hospital slipper socks in bulk and retail compression socks for healthcare providers' and patients' comfort alike.
Patient falls are a daily occurrence and complication in the healthcare setting. Without appropriate footwear, patients, especially elderly patients, are at risk for severe injury from slipping. Hospital non-slip slipper socks with grips are used for the safety of patients by providing traction on typically smooth surface flooring. They can be used in many settings, including on kitchen floors for at-home patients, on wooden floors in nursing homes, and around the house as a general diabetic sock.
Compression socks are crucial for those who work long hours on their feet, like healthcare workers and warehouse personnel, as well as provide benefits for anyone experiencing discomfort in their joints. Doctors recommend compression socks for men and women for a number of reasons. Compression socks increase blood circulation in the legs, prevent venous ulcers, improve lymphatic drainage, and manage orthostatic hypo tension (low blood pressure when standing up after a long period of sitting down) among many other positive effects.
