Removable traction bar and rope: Holds up to ten pounds straight skin traction and is easily removed post surgery.
Extended stitching: Located along the top rim, the added stitching narrows the forefoot and increases support to provide improved protection against foot drop, equines deformity, or heel cord contracture.
“Easy-on, Easy-off” Straps: Easy to use, the soft straps can be adjusted to accommodate the patient’s specific needs.
Friction-free tricot backing: The smooth tricot backing aids in patient mobility and helps ensure patient safety.
Tricot covered stiffener: This feature prevents Heelift Traction from buckling for added patient comfort and safety.
With up to ten pounds straight skin traction for fracture pain relief, latex-free 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.
After surgery, the side traction straps, traction bar, and rope can be removed, converting the Traction Boot into a Heelift Suspension Boot to help prevent pressure ulcers.
