Convoluted foam
The convoluted foam design results in better air circulation and, thus, ensures a pleasant cooling effect.

Positioning Devices, Heel Off-loading Device, Orthopedic Device. Particularly suitable for diabetes patients - Smooth foam

Smooth foam
The smooth foam version was developed especially for sensitive skin. This is particularly suitable for diabetes patients.


The Body Armor® Heel Reliever provides effective pressure relief in the heel area. The Heel Protector was specially developed for supine patients.

To avoid skin contact with the forefoot strap and to redistribute pressure, attachment of the supplied forefoot pad to the forefoot strap can be customised.

The positioning wedge can be used in a variety of ways. The extra foam pad included in the delivery can be cut to size. The fit of the Body Armor® Heel Reliever can be customised in a few steps. For detailed information on adjustment of the foam pad and use of the wedge, please refer to the instructions for use.

Cleaning the Body Armor® Heel Reliever is easy. It can be machine washed in the supplied laundry bag at 60° and can, thus, be used several times on one patient.

The product ideally complements the DARCO diabetes and wound care concept for treatment in all phases of care - preventive, acute or chronic. An added value for the care provider for optimal treatment and improvement in patients' quality of life.
