- What makes HEELIFT® Glide so unique? A soft, smooth exterior fabric allows the patient’s leg to “glide” from side to side, thereby preventing it from catching on sheets and blankets.
HEELIFT® Glide is the result of 40+ years of research, development and refining to create the most innovative and effective heel offloading boot for heel pressure injury prevention ever offered. What makes HEELIFT® Glide so unique? A soft, smooth exterior fabric allows the patient’s leg to “glide” from side to side, thereby preventing it from catching on sheets and blankets.
HEELIFT® Glide Ultra and HEELIFT® Glide boots move easily over the sheets, which helps keep them in place. That means fewer adjustments and less time spent reapplying the boot. The comfortable design means better patient compliance and fewer patient complaints. They are easy to clean — both boots are washable and the interior of HEELIFT® Glide Ultra can simply be wiped clean.
Durable, Yet Soft, Smooth Exterior: Allows the patient’s leg to glide easily across the sheets.
Friction-Free Tricot Backing: Unlike products with sharp edges, HEELIFT® Glide, like all HEELIFT® offloading boots, is manufactured with a smooth tricot backing that aids in patient mobility and safety.
Tricot Covered Stiffener: Prevents HEELIFT® Glide from buckling.
Ventilation Holes: Provide additional air circulation to promote increased patient comfort and a cooler heel offloading boot. Glide is 40% lighter than pillow-style boots.“Easy-on,
Easy-off” Rounded Straps: Easy to use, the soft straps can be adjusted to accommodate the patient’s specific needs.
Choice of Two Interiors: HEELIFT® Glide is available with a choice of two foam interiors.
Deluxe exterior stitching: Reinforces the structure of the heel offloading boot while making the boot less bulky.
Washable/Dryable: Like other HEELIFT® products, HEELIFT® Glide can be washed safely in a net or mesh laundry bag and can be safely dried in a dryer.
HEELIFT® Glide is indicated for patients who are at high risk for heel pressure injuries or who have experienced pressure injuries in the past.
HEELIFT® Glide can play an integral role in offloading the heel to help prevent heel pressure injuries. Unlike pillows, which can actually aggravate heel cord contracture, HEELIFT® Glide assists in keeping the patient’s foot in the correct position for heel pressure injury prevention. Compared to pillows and other heel offloading devices, HEELIFT® Glide can also save a lot of nursing time.
When using pillows, the caregiver has to determine:
Whether the pillow is thick enough to actually prevent the heel from making contact with the bed
Whether there are enough pillows to fully elevate the heel
Whether the pillow is properly relieving pressure on the heel while also helping to avoid foot drop
Whether the patient is remaining in the ideal position for heel pressure ulcer prevention
Because HEELIFT® Glide “glides” across the sheets, the patient’s foot will stay in place even better than it would in other professional offloading devices. This not only provides more effective care for the patient, but it also means fewer adjustments and less time spent reapplying the boot.
