While many Americans walk an average of 3,000-5,000 steps per day, or around two miles, those who work in healthcare, can accumulate far more due to the pace of the occupation. For example, according to Healthline, a nurse will take an average of 16,390 steps in an average shift.

Footwear Comfort and Protection for Healthcare Workers

Today’s health care workers are having more demands placed on them than ever before. Longer shifts, more days at work and more activity overall are taking a toll on their bodies. Having proper footwear is a critical factor in their comfort -helping to provide support, reduce back strain, alleviate pain and provide an added layer of protection.

When designing the right comfort solution, understanding the specific needs of the healthcare workforce environment is paramount. For example is the materials able to withstand:

  • Continuous pressure from standing
  • Long hours of wear
  • Dynamic pressures from walking
  • Hard unyielding surfaces
