Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to describe the development of a standard method for testing anti-slip devices and discusses the main results from testing the anti-slip devices on a large group of healthy individuals. Methods for evaluations of perceived walking safety and balance, video recordings of walking postures and movements, measures of time to put on and take off each anti-slip device, advantages/disadvantages with each anti-slip device as well as evaluation of priority for own use according to three criteria; safety, balance and appearance are discussed. In a test on healthy individuals three different anti-slip device designs: a heel device, a foot blade device and a whole-foot device, were evaluated on different slippery surfaces: gravel, sand, salt, snow and ice. The results showed that the heel device was perceived to be the safest. It was perceived to fit the shoe and to be stable at heel-strike and on ice. It also had the highest rating of walking safety, walking balance and choice for own use
