Heelift® Glide Suspension Boot

Price £46.00 incl.VAT£53.00 incl.VAT

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

Heelift® Glide can play an integral role in offloading the heel to help prevent heel pressure ulcers. Unlike pillows, which can actually aggravate heel cord contracture, Heelift® Glide assists in keeping the patient’s foot in the correct position for heel pressure ulcer prevention. Compared to pillows and other heel offloading devices, Heelift® Glide can also save a lot of nursing time.

What makes Heelift® Glide so unique? A soft, smooth exterior fabric allows the patient’s leg to “glide” from side to side, thereby preventing it from catching on sheets and blankets. That means:

  • The foot stays in the proper position
  • Less nursing time is needed to reposition the patient
  • Heel pressure ulcer prevention is maximised


  • Prevention and treatment of heel pressure ulcers
  • Patients suffering from large / small vessel disease
  • Diabetic foot syndrome and decubitus
  • Braden pressure-sore risk scale of 17 points or less
  • Sedentary diabetic patients with neurological sensory deficit
  • Foot pulse not palpable
  • Prolonged immobility or coma


  • Durable, Yet Soft, Smooth Exterior: Allows the patient’s leg to glide easily across the sheets.
  • Forefoot Strap: Keeps the boot in place and helps support the forefoot.
  • Friction-Free Tricot Backing: Unlike products with sharp edges, Heelift® Glide, like all Heelift products, is manufactured with a smooth tricot backing that aids in patient mobility and safety.
  • Tricot Covered Stiffener: Prevents Heelift® Glide from buckling.
  • Ventilation Holes: Provide additional air circulation to promote increased patient comfort and a cooler boot. The Glide is 40% lighter than pillow-style boots.
  • “Easy-on, Easy-off” Rounded Straps: Easy to use, the soft straps can be adjusted to accommodate the patient’s specific needs.
  • Choice of Two Interiors: Heelift® Glide is available with a choice of two foam interiors. Smooth foam is available for patients with edematous legs while convoluted foam creates a cooler boot.
  • Extended forefoot: A longer forefoot area helps protect toes.
  • Deluxe exterior stitching: Reinforces the structure of the boot while making the boot less bulky.
  • Washable/Autoclavable: Like other Heelift® products, Heelift® Glide can be washed safely in a net or mesh laundry bag and can be autoclaved for sterility.
