Medical Heel Protectors

Medical heel protectors are a product worn to cover and protect the heel area. Heel protectors are typically used for caring for people with reduced mobility, restricted to a bed or chair when a person may exert pressure on the heel area. Heel protectors come in different styles and are made from various materials such as sheep skin to the advanced synthetic antibacterial fabric offering protection against shearing, rubbing and offer softness and cushioning to reduce pressure to the heel. They are used as a pressure area preventative and can also assist with the healing process.

Heel protectors are specifically intended to help both high-risk and low-risk patients relieve existing pressure ulcers, and/or to prevent ulcers from developing. They reduce pain, pressure, friction and shear forces, and they also help to treat and/or prevent foot drop.
