Description:

The Heelift® Glide Suspension Boot provides effective pressure relief in the heel area and also prevents heel ulcers. We incorporated feedback from doctors and patients into the development of the Heelift® Glide so that the resultant suspension boot features all of the desired criteria.

Why is the Heelift® Glide so unique? A soft, smooth fabric cover allows the leg to "glide" from one side to the other so that it does not get caught on the bed sheet or cover. An additional forefoot strap secures the foot and helps support the forefoot.

Two types of foam:

Heelift® Glide Smooth

3 Sizes (calf circumference):

Bariatric (30 58 cm)

The smooth foam material was developed especially for patients with sensitive skin. This helps prevent the formation of oedema. This version is recommended for diabetic patients.


The Heelift® Glide can be washed safely in the enclosed laundry bag at 60°C and can be autoclaved for sterility.
