    People with limited mobility, especially those confined to bed, are often at risk for painful heel pressure injuries.1 Prevalon Heel Protector III helps reduce the risk of bedsores by keeping the heel floated, relieving pressure. The stretch panels help ensure a secure fit by allowing the heel protector to be adjusted to different calf sizes.

    Prevalon Heel Protector III also has an integrated wedge to help prevent the foot and leg from rotating out, helping protect against nerve damage in the leg.

    • Cushioned bottom helps keep heel floated
    • Comfort-grip interior keeps heel protector in place
    • Stretch panels comfortably adjust to calf size for a secure fit

    Okay but it has some issues

    Cons:
    • Not robust construction
    • Poor directions
    Because of my wife's issues with her foot, ankle, and lower leg, I've had six years experience with various prostheses. This one ranks in the middle ground. It does protect her heel somewhat better than anything else we've tried, however...The usage instructions are mostly about unpackaging the "boot", with very little about putting it on or any other usage guidance. There's only one hard-to-decipher picture showing what to do with the other two straps. Based on my past experience, I've winged it. Some info on cleaning would have been good, but there isn't any. It's probably worth the $110 but I'm not in love with it.
