Quikiks for Diabetes

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 Diabetes patients.

Quikiks are... the shoe for Diabetes

According to the American Diabetes Association, common complications of diabetes include: tingling in the hands and feet, fatigue, and neuropathy. Collectively, these symptoms make it extremely difficult, if not impossible, to bend down to take traditional sneakers on and off. Quikiks' unique hands-free technology solves both these problems, making our brand the shoe for Diabetes patients.

One of the complications of diabetes is peripheral neuropathy, which can cause a loss of sensation in the feet. This means that people with diabetes may not feel pain, heat, or cold in their feet, and may not notice cuts or blisters that can become infected and turn into foot ulcers.  Regrettably, these foot ulcers are the cause of approximately 200 lower limb amputations per day in the United States.  Wearing diabetic footwear can help reduce the risk of foot injuries by providing a comfortable and protective environment for the feet. Our new Diabetic-Friendly Quikiks, will not only incorporate our proprietary hands-free technology, but are designed with soft, breathable materials that reduce pressure and friction on the feet, which can prevent cuts and blisters.

Additionally, by enabling customers to kick our shoes on and off without ever bending over, fatigue is better controlled. As part of our design, additional space is also added to the shoe, allowing them to be worn even if a user is experiencing swelling in their foot from water retention or neuropathy. Our integration of Velcro as opposed to shoe laces also eliminates the need for hand dexterity in the presence of this swelling or water retention. 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. 

Quikiks are... the future

More than 37 million Americans, or one in 10 people current live with diabetes. This number increases to over 537 million patients worldwide. With Quikiks as the leading shoe to address the intersection between Diabetes symptoms and traditional shoe design flaws, 12 million patients have the potential of benefitting from our technology--and that's just for Diabetes. Quikiks benefits dozens of other health conditions as well ranging from Parkinson's to spinal cord injury. Quikiks are the future.
