Heelz Up
HeelZup Therapeutic Heel Elevating Cushion

One of the leading challenges of the wound care community is heel pressure ulceration.  Heels are naturally susceptible to pressure ulcers and even the most advanced support surfaces prove to be ineffective at prevention and treatment.  Existing modalities of heel pressure ulcer prevention and treatment have many drawbacks.  Heel "Boots" require frequent removal to inspect the skin integrity of the lower leg.  Pillows, which slide out of place and compress very easily are also a high maintenance and unreliable solution to the problem.  The HeelZup Therapeutic Heel Elevating Cushion provides the most practical solution to this complex problem:

  • Exceeds Guidelines for the use of foam as a pressure reduction modality.
  • Elevates heels a minimum of one inch off of the surface, while supporting the lower leg from the achilles area to the knee
  • Raised side bolsters prevent the legs from falling off of the sides of the cushion.
  • Stays neatly in place and does not require constant maintenance and adjustment.
  • Coated nylon cover available on reusable models.
  • Manufactured of high-density, anti-microbial, hypo-allergenic and latex-free foam.
  • Available in both single patient use and reusable models.
  • HeelZup complies with recommended AHRQ, (formerly AHCPR) and NPUAP Guidelines for heel pressure ulcer prevention and treatment.
