HeelSafe™ DVT Hose

HeelSafe DVT Hose is a new graduated compression hose product from DM Systems, Inc, manufacturer of the Heelift® family of products. HeelSafe is made from a super-stretch fabric that makes HeelSafe easy to put on and easy to remove.

 

Graduated compression hosiery plays a vital role in the prevention of deep vein thrombosis. However, the pressure that graduated compression hosiery exerts on the heel can sometimes cause heel pressure ulcers, especially if patients are at risk for developing pressure ulcers. That's why DM Systems created HeelSafe DVT Hose. The unique open-heel "window" design not only relieves pressure on the heel and Achilles tendon, but also allows for easy visualization and palpation of the heel for the prevention of heel pressure ulcers.

 

Features:

 

Unique open-heel "window" design: Allows for easy visualization and palpation of the heel to help prevent heel pressure ulcers.

 

Two Available Lengths: HeelSafe DVT Hose are available in thigh-high and knee-high lengths to accommodate all of your patients.

 

Latex-Free Construction: Safe for patients with latex allergies.

 

Graduated Compression: Helps prevent pooling of the blood in the legs.
