It’s common knowledge that our doctors and nurses are on their feet all day, sometimes standing for hours and hours (especially if you are a surgeon).
Luckily, trainer and sportswear giant, Nike have created a range of shoes that are practical and comfortable for long days of treating patients. The Nike Air Zoom Pulse collection features a lace less, easy clean design with a rubber outsole and a flexible drop-in midsole to make them comfortable to wear for long periods. Even running around a hospital has been taken into consideration when designing them, where even the pattern on the sole allows doctors and nurses will have plenty of grip.
There are six designs created by patients at the OHSU Doernbecher Children’s Hospital and all profits from the sale of the shoes will go to them.
The range is available online from 7 December, so it will be a perfect Christmas present for the medical professional in your life (or for you!).
In keeping with the Christmas spirit, we will be running a little competition so that some of our amazing doctors can win a pair for themselves, so keep your eyes peeled for your next ProMedical newsletter for details on how to enter!
