REDuce Falls Sox®
Our “RED” coloured GripSox® non-slip grip socks have been specifically designed to help staff visually identify people who have been assessed as a high falls risk regardless of where they are located in the hospital or aged care centre.
This makes our REDuce Falls Sox® an ideal falls prevention safety aid.
Our unique grip socks were an integral part of the Ruby Red Socks falls prevention program clinical trial that was run at St Vincents & Mercy Private Hospital in Melbourne and an award-winning clinical trial at John Fawkner Private Hospital in Melbourne.
It is not only patients who can benefit from the use of these particular GripSox®. All allied health staff, and in particular nurses and carers, can benefit from the knowledge that a patient to whom they are about to attend, is visibly identifiable as a high falls risk by the wearing of GripSox®. This means staff can be better prepared in advance when assisting with patient transfers, thus resulting in fewer staff manual handling injuries from unexpected patient slips and falls. Not only does this reduce work days lost through staff injuries, but financially speaking, a reduction in the incidence of patient falls and staff injuries can also significantly reduce an Organisation’s insurance and WorkCover premiums.
Aside from these specific purposes of our REDuce Falls Sox®, our special product also provides a great option for those people wanting to add a splash of colour to their pilates or yoga workout!
Can you or your Organisation afford to take the risk?

There are a lot of substandard imitations out there with no evidence supporting the product’s clinical benefits.
