The Convoluted Heel Boot is designed to provide a most effective solution for prevention and assistive healing of pressure ulcers at the heel, while delivering positioning and alignment of the lower limb.
By using an inbuilt wedge of soft, Convoluted medical grade foam the heel is ensured a no contact area while giving good support over the calf. The Heelift fits comfortably onto the foot and is secured with Velcro® straps. The base of the Heelift is made up of a tricot low shear/friction surface which allows the boot to slide easily over the mattress surface. This reduces friction and shear and ensures the Heelift stays in place at all times.
The Heelift comes with an extra foam piece which can be fitted to prevent footdrop or prevent hip rotation. Foam can be cut to accommodate Achilles tendon erythema.
Made from latex free medical grade foam. Friction-free tricot base for improved client mobility. Ensures Heelift stays in place at all time. Extra pad to control hip rotation, foot drop or provide added elevation.
One size fits all. Machine washable and dryer safe.

- Are at risk of, or have existing, heel pressure sores.
- Are immobile or post-operative.
- Suffer from diabetes, cardiovascular disease or dietary deficiencies. Are at risk of developing foot drop. Have flaccid paralysis.
