Quikiks for Gout
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 Gout patients.
Quikiks are... the shoe for Gout
According to the Arthritis Foundation, common complications of Gout include: inflammation of the joint, intense joint pain, and limited range of motion. 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 Gout patients.
By enabling customers to kick our shoes on and off without ever bending over, any gout in the hips and knees is better mitigated. While gout of the hip or knee is less common than the big toe, it is possible,and Quikiks aims to be part of the solution for this lesser know symptom. More importantly fo gout, 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. Our integration of Velcro as opposed to shoe laces also eliminates the need for hand dexterity in the presence of this swelling or pain. 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 muscle weakness.
Quikiks are... the future
