The Bariatric Heelift Suspension Boot
boasts all of the same qualities as the Original Classic Heelift, but is designed specifically for users who weigh up to 600 pounds. Healthcare professionals are increasingly recognizing obesity as a risk factor for diabetes and associated complications, including heel pressure ulcers.
The Bariatric Heelift Suspension Boot helps prevent heel pressure ulcers in patients who are particularly prone to suffer from the condition. Specifically, this large size heel offloading boot was developed for patients weighing up to 600 pounds who have a calf circumference of between 12 to 23 inches.
Like the Original Classic Heelift, the boot offloads the heel by redistributing pressure from the heel to the patient's calf. The design of this heel suspension boot minimizes contact between the patient's leg and objects that can cause pressure at the heel or at folds in the skin. Rounded, adjustable straps and a smooth, friction-free tricot backing also ensure that the foam boot will not rub against or cause impressions on the patient's other leg. Padded Velcro® straps are easy for the patient and/or healthcare professional to use and can easily be adjusted to accommodate specific patient needs.
Located along the top rim, added stitching narrows the forefoot and increases support to provide improved protection against foot drop, equines deformity, or heel cord contracture. Bariatric Heelift Suspension Boot is available in Smooth foam only. Smooth foam is ideal for patients with edematous legs as it will not create "impressions" on the leg. Ventilation holes provide additional air circulation to promote increased patient comfort. Together with diligent care and monitoring, the Bariatric Heelift Suspension Boot can help caregivers prevent heel pressure ulcers for high risk bariatric clients.
The Bariatric Heelift Suspension Boot is machine washable if placed in a net laundry bag with the Velcro® straps closed and the extra elevation pads removed.
Non-returnable if packaging is opened.
