Prevents heel cord and Achilles tendon shortening when a patient is subject to prolonged bed rest. Protects the heel while maintaining the ankle in functional alignment. Entire heel is in contact with a soft, cushioning AliPlast™ foam liner. The cushioning air space between shell and liner cradles the heel in a protective hammock, reducing ulceration risk.
The patient can change position freely in bed from side-lying to supine. Only the ankle is immobilized, leaving the hip joint free to rotate and flex. Fits up to 80% of patients without modification. Accommodates patients with significant edema, larger calves and malleoli. Shell and liner can be washed and disinfected.
