Offering patients a new level of support, the TruVue Heel Protector is constructed with an anti-shear pad that serves as a barrier to shearing forces on the heel from a bed. The Achilles pillow is positioned under the Achilles tendon to provide heel elevation and to cushion the tendon from pressure locations. Additionally, the product’s removable external wedge and stability rails deliver a stable base necessary to overcome torsional forces and resist leg rotation.
EHOB’s TruVue Heel Protector mirrors the natural shape of the leg, securely holding the leg and foot in place while allowing for full range of motion. Its anti-foot-drop straps attach to each side of the boot, rather than the back, to alleviate pressure points around and on the base of the foot. The straps also give caregivers the ability to pull the foot back to a neutral 90-degree orientation. A foot gate that fully opens provides complete visibility to the foot in addition to adjustability in width for a custom fit. Its deep, v-cut heel well fully offloads the heel without any product interaction and provides relief from product-to-heel engagement with foot flexion.
