This type of person is best to wear slippers at home.
With a height of two or three centimeters, don’t choose a plastic sole to return home from the outside. I can’t wait to get rid of the shoes all day and put on a pair of loose and comfortable slippers.
However, for those who are 70 or 80 years old, loose slippers are likely to cause some accidents.
Why is this so?
This starts with the special design of the slippers.
Wang Kai, director of the rehabilitation department of Shanghai Jing’an Geriatric Hospital, said that the slippers are loose and the soles are generally longer than the soles of the feet. The old man wears them, and it is difficult to be as secure and heeled as the shoes tied to the feet.
In addition, the slippers are mostly flat and flat, so when wearing slippers, the soles of the feet must be pressed firmly against the soles to walk normally.
Moreover, flat shoes can increase the pressure on the feet, which can affect blood circulation or cause fatigue in the feet due to nervous tension.
If there is long-term compression and friction, it is also easy to cause skin damage, especially for people with diabetes and diabetes, it is difficult to cure after skin damage.
In order to disperse the pressure on the soles of the feet, it is best to choose a pair of slippers with a heel of 2-3 cm, or simply wear a pair of shoes, because the padded heel can relieve the pressure of the arch, which can protect the body.
When choosing slippers, the elderly should not be too loose or too tight.
The length is just as good as the plug, not too long.
The material of the sole should also be considered. The friction between the plastic and the ground is small and it is easy to slip, so it is best to choose the bottom of the cloth.
It should be noted that some elderly people with obesity or high blood pressure should choose a pair of shoes.
