Overall, the most effective strategy to prevent and treat heel pressure ulcers is pressure redistribution. A professional heel offloading device that floats the heel is usually recommended for successful pressure redistribution.
Appropriate offloading, adequate ventilation and friction-free materials are all important features for any product that will be used to prevent or treat heel pressure sores.
Heelift® Suspension Boot provides all these advantages and can play an appropriate role in prevention and treatment regimens.
The exact treatment regimen will depend upon the severity of the pressure sore, as indicated by the International NPUAP-EPUAP Pressure Ulcer Classification Guidelines. Contact us now for more information on how Heelift can make a difference in how your facility prevents and treats heel pressure sores. I’ve mentioned in my previous posts that pressure sores are preventable, but if you’re currently caring for a loved one with a pressure sore, these words are of little consolation.


For additional information, also see the links from Part 1 of this blog’s pressure sore series. In this blog series I will present a brief summary of what I’ve learned and experienced first hand in prevention and treatment of pressure sores.
There are numerous factors that play a role in pressure sore formation and what is true for one person may not be true for someone else. In this part of my blog series, I have outlined discussed what pressure sores are, how they are formed and most common causes and treatment modalities. Negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) with an adequate pressure redistribution device can be appropriate for large heel pressure sores. The downloadable AWMA: Heel Pressure Ulcer Poster provides more information on the stages outlined in the guidelines as well as recommendations on treatment practices. Now, even months later, her sore isn’t completely healed, but thanks to Miracle Mist Plus we are at least headed in the right direction.


In addition, I encourage anyone who is caring for a loved one confined to a bed or wheelchair to establish a pressure sore preventative program with your doctor. All the fleece products are machine washable and because of their special UR treatment last a long time. If anyone reading this blog is dealing with a pressure sore, I highly recommend giving Miracle Mist Plus a try.
