An Interview with Steve Kaufman

Steve Kaufman is the CEO and Founder of Hands Free, Inc. The makers of Quikiks Hands-Free Shoes


Gary Barg: Steve, tell me about Quikiks Hand Free Shoes and why it's so important for family caregivers to know about them?
Steve Kaufman: Sure, Gary, thanks. Why is it important that caregivers know about hands free shoes? For many people it is a daily struggle to put on their shoes due to all sorts of conditions. Whether it be vertigo, obesity, chronic back pain, severe arthritis, Cerebral Palsy or Parkinson's—there's just a whole host of conditions that make it difficult for people to put their shoes on independently.
