This product is used in many hospitals and nursing homes to help prevent decubitus ulcers. Various departments may use this product:

  • Geriatric
  • Stroke
  • Orthopaedic
  • Post-Operative
  • Intensive Care
  • HIV
  • Diabetic
  • Podiatry
  • Hospice Care
  • Heart Failure
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Burns Unit

 

Another feature is some extra foam under the Hook & Loop Tape strap to try to stop the strap from touching the top of the foot. On many feet the foam can overlap before doing up the Hook & Loop Tape or if the patient has swollen feet and the Hook & Loop Tape is near the top of the foot some disposable wadding can be placed under the Hook & Loop Tape.

We use a soft convoluted foam for this product. Some people may find that the foam grips to the bedclothes and rides up the foot, or comes off the foot. Possible a better product is the Convoluted Foam Heel & Elbow Pads – Covered. These have a slippery outer cover. This means they move around the bed as the foot does, and stay in place well. Please consider this product before purchasing.
