Heelift AFO, Glide and Classic all include a spare elevation pad to facilitate customization. Heelift AFO Ultra and Glide Ultra boots have a removable elevation pad cover for this very same reason. Every Heelift boot is ready to use right out of the bag, but if required, can also be customized to suit your patient’s unique needs.
Achilles Tendon: If redness occurs in this area, cut a “V” shape out of the fixed pad. If using both pads, customize the upper pad.
Malleolar Decubitus: Cut away foam on the fixed pad surrounding the ankle as needed. Cut the spare pad in half and place it along the inside of the boot increasing protective space around the injury.
Foot Rotation: Cut the spare pad lengthwise. Remove adhesive backing and attach the spare pad in a horizontal position along the inside of the boot parallel with the leg.
SCD and Heelift Boots: Apply the boot normally with the SCD sleeve and place the tubing so that it exits out of the opening as shown.
Heelift Anti-Rotation Wedge
The Anti-Rotation Wedge gives you the flexibility needed to stop rotation in immobile patients. The easy to apply, reusable wedge attaches to either side of the boot, and prevents rotation.
- Use with any Heelift Boot (Standard or Petite)
- Takes just seconds to apply
