Suspension Bariatric Smooth Boot
Heelift Suspension Boot can play an integral role in heel pressure ulcer prevention regimens for susceptible, high-risk patients as well as for patients already suffering from heel pressure ulcers. Risk factors for the development of heel pressure ulcers include:
Decreased sensation in the lower extremities from spinal cord injuries
or neurological diagnoses
Moisture from perspiration or incontinence
Friction or shearing caused by dragging or sliding a patient across bed
sheets, which can allow unprotected heels to rub on the bed surface
Use of Heelift Suspension Boot, together with scheduled turning of the patient, careful monitoring, and other prevention procedures, has been clinically proven to help reduce heel pressure prevalence over time1.
