Position Health is the pressure ulcer prevention and treatment division of DM Systems, Inc. It was founded in 1979 by an orthopedic surgeon who wanted better heel pressure ulcer prevention for his surgical patients. Over the years, we’ve learned unequivocally that the best way to treat pressure ulcers is to avoid them. In order to accomplish this, we must avoid pressure. Our team of clinicians has developed an entire suite of solutions to do just that. With our flagship line of heel offloading boots, the Heelift, and our new innovative TurnAssist repositioning system, we can avoid pressure.
But prevention is about more than just products. It’s also about education. Protocols, policies, and prevention/treatment algorithms are all a part of how we can help lower prevalence.
The next generation of pressure ulcer prevention is here. And no matter what clinical setting you’re in, Position Health have the tools and the expertise to deliver it to patients and caregivers.

At Position Health, we have long known that our operations have an impact on the environment. That’s why, every year since 1993, we have recycled all of our packaging and paper waste. Through our continued efforts, we have kept an average of four tons of waste per year from going to the landfill.
But maintaining a commitment to sustainability requires more than a recycling bin. That’s why we partnered with a local corporate sustainability consultant, Go2Green. With their assistance, we completed a rigorous process that reviewed all aspects of our business. Go 2green identified some key areas of focus where we were able to make an immediate impact, including:
Energy Efficiency: installed more energy efficient lighting throughout the office to shave five tons of CO2 from our carbon footprint
Transportation: certified as a Bike Friendly Business by the League of American Bicyclists
Employee Engagement: provided pre-tax employee transit benefits to encourage employees to use public transportation
Every one of our Heelift® Brand Boots have D2W certified biodegradable packaging. This innovation alone will remove hundreds of thousands of plastic bags from landfills. Check back for updates as we expand our commitment to sustainable business.
