Slippy Heel Protector with Lambswool
Heel protectors are an important means of combating and preventing pressure sores. These unique pressure sore heel protectors are slippy on the outside to allow for easier movement while seated or in bed.
Interior made from 100% wool. Very soft and cosy, suitable for extended use.
This outer slippiness allows the wearer to move their feet feely and easily while in bed.
As a lack of movement is a key contributing factor to pressure sores, these pressure sore heel protectors encourage the user to engage in positive movement to guard against the formation of patches of skin that can develop sores.
Machine washable and may be tumble dried.
Early signs of pressure sores include:
Subtle skin discolouration — paler skin typically presents with pink, red or darker patches, while darker skin often shows purple or blue patches.
Spongy or hard sections of skin around joints that are warm to the touch.
Localised itchiness around bony areas of the body.
