The Heellift family (Glide, AFO and Classic) of suspension boots use a fixed pad of latex-free foam to completely elevate the heel, redistributing pressure along the calf. Friction-free Tricot backing and soft felt closure straps for a secure fit eliminate the risk of pressure, friction and shear to the heel. The foam support of the forefoot allows dorsiflexion while preventing heel-cord contracture (foot drop) and external hip rotation (with the spare pad or a wedge).
Prolonged immobility. neurological sensory deficit, peripheral neuropathy (e.g. diabetes), older people.
Standard, bariatric and petite. Can be customised to meet individual patient needs and offload other lower extremity pressure points.
