For patients with pressure damage, the Maxxcare Heel Pro Evolution can be an effective solution for wound healing, as its unique design allows for heel offloading.
The 2014 European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (EPUAP 2014) guidelines also recommend the practice of off-loading pressure"floating heels".
The use of heel protection devices such as the Maxxcare Heel Pro Evolution is a very effective intervention for preventing heel damage in patients and is a valuable resource in the treatment of existing pressure ulcers.
Pressure and shear protection for heels
The Maxxcare Heel Pro Evolution is light and comfortable enough to be worn by the patient in any position. When used in a supine and optimum seated position it completely off-loads pressure from the heel.
The Maxxcare Heel Pro Evolution can be used as a preventative measure. If the patient has an existing heel pressure ulcer it is an effective healing aid. The pressure inflated air capsules inside the boot create optimum comfort and stable positioning to support the foot and ensure effective pressure redistribution to the heel area.
Specifically addressing the risk of pressure damage as a result of shear, the smooth external fabriC produces minimum friction between the patient's skin and the support surface.
Improved non-slip sole means that you can safely walk while wearing the Maxxcare Heel Pro Evolution.
Anti-shear in bed
Foam free, low friction nylon outer material ensure easy movement over sheets, improving bed mobility and circulation
Improved comfort and safety
There is a label on the front that can be completed with patient details for identification purposes. The boot is edged with securely stitched piping for extra comfort around the ankle, calf and toe areas.
New inner fleece lining with two larger adjustable Velcro straps ensure the best individual fit for patients to achieve secure positioning.

Cleaning: 60 oC (machine washable) without removing the internal air cushions.
