Why not give a useful gift to your elderly friends and loved ones that gives them peace of mind, freedom of movement, a simple way to prevent life changing injuries and possibly save their life? What if you could give them all this for as little as $17.95 ?

That's precisely what you give anyone when you give them Yaktrax. That's because they substantially reduce the risk of slipping on ice and packed snow thereby avoiding serious injuries. And that's why it's especially beneficial for elderly people.

"Great! This is the only way to describe your product. My husband and I received Yaktrax as gifts last year while visiting my son in Idaho. Now it's hard to conceive walking in snow and ice without them, especially since we are in our seventies." Dorothy Greenville, NC
Yaktrax makes walking up and down icy or snowy steps a breeze.

Why are Yaktrax the Perfect Gift for Elderly People?

Why is preventing falls so important for elderly people?

  • Falls are the leading cause of all accidental death and sixth leading cause of deaths in elderly people > 65 in the United States.
  • Approximately 20% of older people who fall 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 triple. Obviously the fear of falling is much worse in winter. Changes in lifestyle resulting from the fear elderly people have of falling is many times just as debilitating as the injuries they want to avoid.

  • They no longer participate in outdoor activities they enjoy.
  • They avoid winter indoor activities that involves travel... even simply walking from the car to the door.
  • They avoid making necessary visits to the doctor or trips to the drugstore.

Why Yaktrax make great, thoughtful gifts for elderly people for any occasion

Yaktrax make wonderful birthday gifts, Christmas gifts, or gifts for elderly people for any occasion. When you give your elderly friend or relative Yaktrax you are actually giving them:
  • Peace of mind because Yaktrax substantially reduce their risk of falling and getting injured on ice and packed snow.
  • Freedom of movement so that they can enjoy their favorite outdoor and indoor activities regardless of the time of year.
  • Prevent the cancellation of important appointments because of the weather.
  • Ability to get critical exercise so important for maintaining their sense of balance an therefore reducing their chances of falling under any circumstances.
"Yaktrax have changed my life this winter. I had hip surgery (at age 61) a year ago and my greatest fear was falling on the ice during the winter. I found your Yaktrax in a catalog and have been comfortable ever since. I am able to get to my car down a large hill where my garage is located. I also am able to walk to town if I need to. Keep up the good work and make them safer and safer for us!" Sydney Woodstock, VT

Yaktrax are easy for elderly people to use.

  • Yaktrax are lightweight.
  • Yaktrax have no sharp edges or points that could injure elderly people if they would happen to fall while wearing them.
  • Yaktrax are easy to put on and take off.
    CAUTION! You must remove your Yaktrax before you go indoors because they can be very slippery on dry smooth surfaces. This includes the floors found in most supermarkets, drugstores and post offices.
    I recommend the Yaktrax Walk for most elderly people. That's because it is easier to stretch over your shoes than the Yaktrax Pro. Both the Walk and Pro give you the same secure traction on ice and packed snow. The Pro is heavier duty and will last longer. But the added durability won't benefit you if you can't stretch it over your shoes and boots.
    If you feel that you are not able to take them off and put them back on easily consider AltraGrips-Lite Low Profile Ice Cleats.
  • Yaktrax are simple to use - you simply walk normally as if you are on dry payment.
  • Yaktrax cost just $17.95 .
"I absolutely love the product. They are the best things to happen for Northern Idaho people. Three friends and my 83 year old mother have all bought them and are very satisfied. The stability, lightness and easy removal are a big plus!" Leanne Troy, Idaho

Yaktrax Walker on Stairs
"Yaktrax… the Eighth Wonder of the World!
Seriously, Yaktrax should be used by every person who lives with snow and ice! Years ago I purchased a converted lake house with 29 steps. After a number of falls over a number of years I was getting pretty frustrated. I learned about Yaktrax by accident about four years ago, And since that time I have not had one "accident" on the ice! I have given these to so many of my friends and family members. With Yaktrax, you can walk or jog in the winter, tap dance on a frozen lake, or zoom up and down 29 icy steps with no fear! I also love giving them to my guests when they come to visit me. I’m no spring chicken... but I’m confident I won’t break anything over the winter!" Christine M., New Milford, CT 2/15/2010.
