A heel protector pillow is designed to offload pressure from the heel to help prevent decubitus ulcers on the bony prominence of the foot. These cushions are specially fashioned to relieve pressure on the feet, ankle, and heels of immobilized people confined to bed or wheelchair. They are constructed from resilient polyester fiberfill and are super cozy that provide great comfort and support.
Non-ambulating patients are at risk of developing pressure ulcers on or around bony prominences, such as the heel. Heels are prone to skin breakdown because the posterior heel is only covered by a thin layer of skin and fat. So, the heels are minimally protected from the applied forces of pressure, shear, and friction. Heel pillows help offload heel pressure and provide cushioned foot support and comfort to the patient. These pillows stay in place and protect from friction and shear, thus preventing decubitus ulcers. The heel pillow keeps the heel off the mattress to relieve excess pressure for individuals who spend most of the time in bed.
Health products for you offer a wide range of heel pillows that help protect heels from ulcers, pressure sores and aid those recovering from heel injuries. These pillows are from our esteemed vendors Medline Industries, Patterson Medical/Performance Health, CareActive, and many more.
