heelift Traction boot - case of 2
Heelift Traction Boot provides an inventive method of applying skin traction to help stabilize femur fractures prior to surgery. With up to ten pounds straight skin traction for fracture pain relief, 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, Heelift Traction Boot elevates the leg and controls foot drop and rotation.
Tricot backing provides the full traction benefit with no boot-bed friction.
For post-operative use, remove the traction straps, bar and rope and the product easily converts to a Heelift Smooth Suspension Boot for heel pressure prevention.
