Why Are Traditional Ice Cleats Impractical for Home Healthcare and Patient Transport?

Visiting Nurses, Home Hospice, and other Home Healthcare Workers are constantly going in and out of doors and vehicles.

Traditional Ice Cleats must be removed when making these transitions because Ice Cleats

  • damage most interior floors;
  • have sharp spikes can be slippery on hard, smooth, non-snow and ice-covered surfaces; and
  • are unsafe to wear while driving.
Ordinary Ice Cleats also present additional problems when working in the city because they're slippery when stepping on sewer grates, utility hole covers, escalators, and the steps and floors on mass transit.
