Heelift Suspension Boot


Heelift Suspension Boot has long set the bar for heel pressure ulcer prevention and treatment. Heelift effectively eliminates pressure from the heel by offloading all pressure from the heel and redistributing the pressure to the calf, preventing the development of heel pressure ulcers. A gentle cradling and cushioning of the lower leg with the heel elevated in protective space reduces the chances for irritation or pressure points.

Features

 

Extended stitching: Located along the top rim, the added stitching narrows the forefoot and increases support to provide improved protection against foot drop, equines deformity, or heel cord contracture.

“Easy-on, Easy-off” Rounded Straps: Easy to use, the soft straps can be adjusted to accommodate the patient’s specific needs.  

 

Friction-free tricot backing:Unlike other suspension products, which can have sharp edges on the back that can rub against the patient's other leg, Heelift is manufactured with a smooth tricot backing that aids in patient mobility and helps ensure patient safety.


Two types of foam: Heelift Standard is available in Smooth foam or in Convoluted foam. Smooth foam is ideal for patients with edematous legs as it will not create "impressions" on the leg. Convoluted foam is slightly cooler to wear.

Ventilation holes: Ventilation holes provide additional air circulation to promote increased patient comfort. Heelift is 40% lighter than pillow-style boots.


Tricot covered stiffener: This feature prevents Heelift from buckling for added patient comfort and safety.

 

Forefoot support: Spring back technology helps to keep the foot upright.

 

Washable/Autoclavable: Like other Heelift products, Heelift can be washed safely in a net or mesh laundry bag and can be autoclaved for sterility. For more information visit the Heeliftinstructions page.

 

Indications:

Heelift Standard 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:

• High Risk Assessment Scale Score (eg: Braden Scale<15)
• Prior History of Pressure Ulcers
• Prolonged Immobility (hip fracture, coma)
• Compromised Circulation (diabetes, arterio-sclerosis)
• Neurological Disorder (paraplegia)
• Advanced Age (>65)

 Use of Heelift Standard 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 time.
