The heels are the most common site for facility-acquired pressure injuries in long-term care facilities and the second most common site for pressure injuries overall1. According to clinical experts, the most effective pressure injury prevention for the heels is pressure relief known as offloading1,2. Offloading is achieved with heel protection devices that relieve pressure by elevating the heel.

Heelmedix heel protectors, designed with the help of clinicians, offer supreme offloading and foot drop protection as a vital part of your comprehensive skin management program.
