Quikiks for Parkinson's
Quikiks are... unique
Quikiks are the easiest to use hands-free shoes. Unlike our competitors, each shoe can be individually donned and doffed from a sitting or standing position and without the need to use your opposing foot to pry your foot out. Less dexterity, balance, and coordination are required, rendering them the ideal shoe for Parkinson's patients.
Quikiks are... the shoe for PD
According to the Parkinson's Foundation, the common symptoms of Parkinson's include: dizziness or fainting, tremor, trouble moving or walking, postural instability, vertigo and dizziness, and fatigue. Collectively, these symptoms make it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to tie shoes and/or to bend down to take them on and off. Quikiks' unique hands-free technology solves both these problems, making our brand the shoe for Parkinson's patients.
By enabling customers to kick our shoes on and off without ever bending over, vertigo, dizziness, postural instability, and fatigue are remedied. Furthermore, our hands free technology, which extends to our pre-tied laces and/or lace-free shoes, adapts to tremors in fingers and hands. Most significantly, unlike our competitors, users do not need to be able to balance on one foot to ease the shoe off the other; they simply kick their foot down, and the shoe comes off. This is extremely useful for those who experience postural instability and trouble moving or walking which render balance difficult.
Quikiks are... the future
Over 500,000 patients in the U.S. alone are currently living with Parkinson's. This number increases to over 10 million patients worldwide. With Quikiks as the leading shoe to address the intersection between Parkinson's symptoms and traditional shoe design flaws, millions of patients have the potential of benefitting from our technology--and that's just for Parkinson's. Quikiks benefits dozens of other health conditions as well ranging from Scoliosis to spinal cord injury to pregnancy. Quikiks are the future.
