The convoluted foam extends under the legs to beyond the knees to help prevent hyperextension of the knee.
When the patient is lying in the supine position, the feet should be resting on the foot-drop rest. As the sheets and bed clothes will be resting on top of the foot-drop rest, this will stop extra pressure on the feet to help prevent foot-drop and rotation of the feet. If the feet are rotating, we recommend the Anti-Rotation Foot Strap that can be fitted onto the Heel & Foot-Drop Bed Support. These soft elasticised straps are easy to use and can be fitted to individual needs.
When putting the Heel & Foot-Drop Bed Support on the bed it can normally be resting against the bed’s foot board, or if used with a very short person, a pillow can be placed between the Heel & Foot-Drop Bed Support and the foot board. Another method of securing the Heel & Foot-Drop Bed Support is to tuck the top sheet underneath it or tie a ribbon from the two side loops to the bed frame.
As the lower legs and feet are slightly raised you may find this product helpful in preventing Oedema and even when patients are lying on their side the soft convoluted foam helps prevent heel pressure.
