  • Why Ice Cleats Are So Important For Seniors
  • Ice Cleats Improve Quality Of Life
  • Gritted Ice Cleats are Not the Answer
According to the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society:
  • Falling is the leading cause of accidental death and sixth leading cause of deaths in older people > 65 in the United States.
  • Approximately 20% of falls in older people require emergency medical attention, 30% to 50% of these result in hospitalization.
  • 5% to 10% of falls in older people result in serious soft tissue damage, 3% to 5% in skeletal fracture, and 1% to 2% in hip fracture.
  • A fall precedes 90% of hip fractures and 25% to 40% of vertebral compression fractures.
  • If a person has low bone mineral density, the risk of hip fracture resulting from a fall is tripled.
  • The personal, family, and societal consequences of fractures in older people, particularly hip fracture, can be devastating. Therefore, fall prevention is an important facet of any osteoporotic fracture reduction scheme.
According the The Center for Disease Control and Prevention, about 1 million Americans are injured and 17,000 people die as a result of slip and fall injuries every year. Obviously slips and falls on ice and snow is a significant reason.
Ice cleats provide more freedom of movement and keep you healthier. Many seniors confine themselves to their homes during the winter months because of the fear of slipping on the ice. They miss family events and doctor and dentist appointments.

No ice cleat can guarantee you won't fall. Ice cleats can only reduce the risk. So it's important to get quality ice cleats that reduce risk to an acceptable level. My recommended ice cleats reduce the risk to the lowest possible level.

Sizing Help

  1. Obviously you can go by the shoe sizes. But the actual size of the shoe or boot can vary greatly for the same foot size. So option 2 below is a better way to select the correct size.
    (OR)
  2. Measure the length of the shoe or boot you want to put the ice cleat on. Then find the size on the sizing chart with the Footwear Length Range that includes the length of your footwear.

Do I need the Ankle Strap?

Winter Walking Ice Cleats fit securely on most shoes and boots and most people do not need or use the Ankle Strap. But if you walk through deep snow (especially wet snow) or mud you should consider the Ankle Strap.

The Ankle Strap also reduces the risk that you would somehow otherwise lose one. Winter Walking Ice Cleats are very comfortable. You may not notice if one is missing until you've traveled some distance or worse yet slip and fall.
