Heelift® Traction Boot
The Heelift® Traction Boot stabilizes femur fractures with up to 10lb of skin traction while preventing heel pressure ulcers.
• Customizable foam boot with fixed elevation pad
• Spare pad with adhesive backing to customize the boot for any unusual problems or for specific needs
• Velcro® side traction straps
• Removable traction bar and rope
The Heelift® Traction Boot helps prevent heel and lateral malleolar ulcers and avert peroneal nerve pressure injury at the fibular head, as well as providing forefoot support to avoid heel cord contracture. During the pre-surgical period when the patient lacks the ability to control the leg, the Heelift® Traction Boot elevates the leg and controls foot drop and rotation.
After surgery, the side traction straps, traction bar, and rope can be removed, converting the Traction Boot into a Heelift® Standard Suspension Boot to help prevent pressure ulcers.
