The Bed Heel Elevator is made from a wedge-shaped foam contoured to hold a leg. The convoluted section will help with blood flow and pressure care under the calf.
The patient’s heel should rest over the end so it is suspended in the air above the mattress. As the Bed Heel Elevator is used with patients who will not move their legs off the elevator, we suggest that the Carer periodically moves the elevator up and down the leg to enable blood flow and alter the pressure on the back of the leg.
Patients can be on their sides when using the elevator and two elevators can be used for both heels if necessary.
The Bed Heel Elevator has a sweat-resistant wipeable cover. A cotton sheet can be draped over the elevator to help prevent sweating for some patients.
The Bed Heel Elevator Foot-Drop Support is an attachment for the Bed Heel Elevator to help prevent Foot-Drop.
The wipeable, water resistant nylon cover can be removed for machine or hand washing at 80°C. Do not tumble dry the cover.
Price $58, (40 Footdrop Support)
