About Us

GripSox® (non slip grip socks) were designed in Australia by Melbourne Physiotherapist Luke Goodwin specifically for people performing exercises such as pilates and yoga. However, it soon became evident that there was a far greater market for this exciting new product. This excellent product is now sold extensively by retailers throughout Australia and around the world, and is now a key feature for patient safety in hospitals, aged care residences and around the home.

The main feature of GripSox® is a "non-slip" rubberised sole to help with the gripping of equipment, various floor surfaces, and mats.

Here are some of the other key benefits of these safety grip socks:

  • Improve performance.
  • Increase safety.
  • Improve hygiene.
  • Provide warmth.
  • Allow breathability with 95% cotton (essential for exercise).
  • Provide stretch with 5% elastane (important for the patient with swollen feet and ankles).
  • GripSox Stretch Top® socks provide extra comfort for those individuals with swollen feet and ankles.
  • Latex free.
  • Easily worn over compression stockings.
  • Clinically trialled in Australia and New Zealand.
  • Used world-wide.
  • Add pure comfort with a seamless toe.
  • Fitted heel to prevent socks rotating around the foot.
  • Non-cushioned for extra grip and foot sensation.
  • Available in different sizes to cater for patient's needs as opposed to the problematic and limited "one size fits all" socks.
  • Our specially designed red GripSox® means that high falls risk patients can be easily identified by all allied health staff. No more need for different coloured wrist bands!
  • A reduction in patient falls rates can help reduce an Organisation's financial and insurance costs associated with falls.
  • Special wholesale prices for bulk ordering.
  • Freight-free with select minimum order quantities in Australia.
