Heelift Suspension Boot

Heelift Suspension Boot

V-M Orthotics


The Heelift family of suspension boots (the Glide, AFO and Classic) all use a fixed pad of latex-free foam to completely elevate the heel, redistributing pressure along the calf. With friction-free Tricot backing and soft felt closure straps for a secure fit, it eliminates 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).


Prolonged immobility; neurological sensory deficit; peripheral neuropathy (e.g. diabetes); older people.


None listed.

Sizes Available

Standard, bariatric and petite. Soft foam design and spare elevation pad make it possible to customise the device to meet individual patients' needs and offload other lower extremity pressure points.


Now available on the NHS Supply Chain.
