Quikiks for Multiple Sclerosis
“Your shoes are amazing! It’s
the first time I can put my own
shoes on in 20 years!”
- Jerome S., Venice, FL, 83 year-old with MS
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 Multiple Sclerosis patients.
Quikiks are... the shoe for MS
According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, the most common symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis include: walking (gait) difficulties, numbness or tingling, fatigue, weakness, spasticity, and vertigo and dizziness. 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 MS patients.
By enabling customers to kick our shoes on and off without ever bending over, vertigo, dizziness, gait difficulties, and fatigue are remedied. Furthermore, our hands free technology, which extends to our pre-tied laces and/or lace-free shoes, adapts to numbness and tingling 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 spasticity or weakness in their feet or ankles or general dizziness and gait difficulties which render balance difficult.
Quikiks are... the future
Over 400,000 patients in the U.S. alone are currently living with Multiple Sclerosis. This number increases to 2.1 million patients worldwide. With Quikiks as the leading shoe to address the intersection between MS symptoms and traditional shoe design flaws, millions of patients have the potential of benefitting from our technology--and that's just for MS. Quikiks benefits dozens of other health conditions as well ranging from Parkinson's to spinal cord injury. Quikiks are the future.
