Heelift® Glide Ultra Boot




You asked and we answered. Based on the results of interviews with clinicians across North America and Europe, DM Systems has developed its new Heelift® Glide Ultra offloading boot, which not only provides advanced heel pressure sore prevention, but does so with a new easy-to-clean, cool inner lining.

The Heelift Glide Ultra offloading boot features the new Ultra Grip, a comfortable, lightweight and breathable fabric lining that effectively holds the leg in place. Durable and easy to wipe clean, this offloading boot provides exceptional performance and cost benefits.

 

Like DM Systems’ original Heelift Glide offloading boot, the Heelift Glide Ultra has a soft, smooth exterior fabric that allows the patient’s leg to “glide” from side to side, thereby preventing it from catching on sheets and blankets. That means:

  • The foot remains in the proper position in the offloading boot
  • Nursing staff time needed to reposition the patient is reduced
  • Heel pressure sore prevention is maximized

Features:

 

Features of the Heelift Glide Ultra offloading boot include:

 



Durable, soft, smooth exterior:

Allows the patient’s leg to glide easily across the sheets.



Forefoot strap:

Keeps the heel offloading boot in place and helps support the forefoot.


Smooth, friction-free tricot backing and stiffener:

Aids in patient mobility and safety. Prevents Heelift Glide Ultra from buckling.

Simple application:

Easy-to-use soft straps can be adjusted to accommodate the patient’s specific needs.

Extended forefoot:

A longer forefoot area helps protect toes.

Deluxe exterior stitching:

Reinforces the structure of the heel offloading boot while making the boot less bulky.

Ultra Grip inner lining:
Made of a breathable fabric that can be wiped clean for easier day-to-day maintenance while effectively holding the leg in place.

 

Indications:

 

Heelift Glide Ultra is indicated for patients who are at high risk for heel pressure sores or who have experienced pressure sores in the past.

 

Heelift Glide Ultra can play an integral role in offloading the heel and keeping the patient’s foot in the correct position for heel pressure sore prevention. Compared to pillows and other heel offloading devices, Heelift Glide Ultra can also save a lot of nursing time.

 

Regular movement in a bed can cause a patient’s foot to dislodge from or become misaligned in a typical offloading device. With Heelift Glide Ultra, the patient’s foot can glide across the sheets, staying in place better than it would with other 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.
