Description:

The Heelift Glide Suspension Boot provides effective pressure relief in the heel area and also prevents heel ulcers. We incorporated feedback from doctors and patients into the development of the Heelift® Glide so that the resultant suspension boot features all of the desired criteria.

Why is the Heelift® Glide so unique? A soft, smooth fabric cover allows the leg to “glide” from one side to the other so that it does not get caught on the bed sheet or cover. An additional forefoot strap secures the foot and helps support the forefoot.

  • diabetic foot syndrome and decubitus

  • economical prevention strategy for high risk or sedentary patients
