SAFETY SHOES FOR NURSES

MADE FOR THE HIGHEST DEMANDS

Those who work in nursing put a lot of strain on their tendons and joints due to their physically hard work. Heavy carrying, lifting and pushing put strain on the back and joints. What’s more, you’re on your feet all day. Lightweight footwear is therefore all the more important on hard surgery floors. To prevent falls, safety shoes for nursing should be slip-resistant. In addition, they should be quick to put on and take off again and be individually adjustable. Heel straps, shoelaces or Velcro fasteners ensure an optimal fit on the foot. The breathable textile lining provides extra comfort as moisture is absorbed and wicked away. This will keep you fresher if you are on your feet a lot.

SELECTION OF PRODUCTS

NON-SLIP THANKS TO SRC

COMPREHENSIVE SLIP RESISTANCE

If a safety shoe is SRC certified, it means that it has comprehensive slip resistance. An SRC certified safety shoe can be used on ceramic floors (tiles) where water and detergents are used as well as on steel floors where glycerine is used.

ORTHOPAEDIC FOOT PROTECTION

CERTIFIED ACCORDING TO EN ISO 20345/20347 (DGUV 112-191)

Many people develop foot problems during the course of their lives. Often it is not necessary to have these conditions treated orthopaedically. If your feet still hurt, our semi-orthopaedic insoles can help. If you develop an orthopaedic condition, special orthopaedic insoles are essential. A large proportion of the ELTEN collection is certified for orthopaedic adjustments in accordance with EN ISO 20345/20347 (DGUV 112-191). The orthopaedic shoemaker / medical supply store can make orthopaedic changes, without the shoe losing its protective function.

NO TIRED FEET

WELLMAXX

Nursing staff in particular are on their feet for several hours every day. They move around a lot on hard floors, stand for long periods of time, or work in a squatting position. For the feet, this means a heavy load. We prevent this problem with our WELLMAXX series! The innovative Infinergy® cushioning material in the sole core, from BASF, noticeably relieves the feet.

   

ERGO-ACTIVE FIT CONCEPT

WHICH MATERIAL SHOULD I CHOOSE?
Besides the correct width, other factors contribute to achieving the right fit. In order to address typical problems regarding fit (too wide, too narrow, too short), we have developed the Ergo-Active 2.0 system. We distinguish between three different foot types:

  • Type 1 (for larger feet),
  • Type 2 (for average feet),
  • Type 3 (for narrower feet).

MULTIPLE WIDTH FIT CONCEPT

The feet of employees in nursing professions have to do a lot – so the shoes should fit perfectly. That is why we offer some of our models in three different widths:

  • W (For the average width foot)
  • XW (For the wider foot)
  • XXW (For the very wide foot)

The comfortable multi-width system provides each foot with the individual space it requires. Since the toe cap has also “grown” in width, the necessary volume in the forefoot area is maintained.

LADIES FIT CONCEPT

LADIES HAVE A NARROWER FIT

Women’s feet are different to men’s: they are narrower and flatter than those of men with the same shoe size. For this reason, we have special women’s models within our range, which offer appropriate solutions to meet the requirements of female foot anatomy.

WITH ONE TURN

BOA® FIT SYSTEM

The BOA® Fit System allows the safety shoes to be tightened and loosened quickly, safely, and comfortably – with just one hand! The lacing “stays put” all day long, thus ensuring a permanently precise fit. Other benefits include no loose laces hanging down and the fact that the BOA® Fit System is extremely durable – perfect for the harsh conditions of the construction industry.

 

INSOLES

Semi-orthopaedic insoles close the gap between the foot profile and the flat bottom of the shoe, thus preventing pain and damage in the knee, foot, and hip area as a result of excessive load. They are light, dynamic, and pleasantly supportive. Feet and lower legs tire more slowly.

LEATHER VS. TEXTILE

WHICH MATERIAL SHOULD I CHOOSE?

A shoe is only as good as the materials from which it is made: quality makes all the difference. This represents one good reason why we use high-quality leather and high-tech materials. Each material has its advantages. Leather, for example, is characterised simultaneously by its good breathability, durability, dimensional stability and flexibility. Textile products offer greater scope, as they are more versatile in terms of structure and surface design. The textile material, Cordura®, offers extreme tear and abrasion resistance, is dirt and water-repellent, and dries quickly.
