Sheepskin heel protectors
Pure wool sheepskin heel protectors with soft adjustable velcro straps, designed with patient comfort in mind. The pure wool fleece features small openings at each side of the back of the foot, ensuring excellent breathability and ultimate comfort for the wearer. Reducing pressure on the heel and ultimately preventing bed sores and pressure related injuries. The adjustable velcro straps allow patients or their carers to fit the protectors easily and correctly. Ensuring the patient is comfortable wearing them, also making them suitable for a variety of ankle sizes.
Patients can wear the heel protectors in bed or when seated, these are suitable for those who have to spend prolonged periods of time lying down or sitting. Ideal for home care use, they are sometimes worn by people suffering with symptoms of diabetes heel pain, plantar fasciitis, heel nerve damage or bed sores. By adding comfort to the heels, the wearer is more likely to be able to rest and get a good night’s sleep in bed.
These sheepskin heel protectors are suitable for use in bed or when sitting. However, please note that patients standing or walking around shouldn’t wear them.
Being machine washable, they can be reused many times. The heel protectors are machine washable at up to 40 degrees. After washing, simply air-dry the heel protectors for best results. Suitable for all adult ankle sizes.
