The Bed Heel Elevator is made from a wedge-shaped foam contoured to hold a leg, and to keep the heel off the bed.
The convoluted section will help with blood flow and pressure care under the calf. The patient’s heel should rest over the end so it is suspended in the air above the mattress. As this product is used with patients who will not move their legs off the elevator, we suggest that the Carer periodically moves the elevator up and down the leg to enable blood flow and alter the pressure on the back of the leg.
Patients can be on their sides when using this product. Two elevators can be used for both heels if necessary and comfortable.
