How to Choose Adaptive Slippers
Adaptive slippers, also known as indoor shoes and non-slip shoes, are a great option for those who struggle with traditional footwear. Snaps, zippers and laces on shoes can be challenging for those with limited mobility. Adaptive slippers feature Velcro closures for ease and simplicity, making them a great alternative. They’re also a great option for those with swollen feet or are dressed by a caregiver.
There are different types and styles of adaptive slippers for both men and women. They open and close differently and come in multiple widths to ensure there is a good option for everyone. If you’re interested in adaptive slippers, you’re going to want to make sure you are selecting the best pair for your unique needs.
To help make shopping easier, we’ve outlined the key benefits and functions of each style and type of adaptive footwear below. If you have any questions about adaptive slippers or indoor shoes, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team. We’re here to help!
