Prevalon® Pressure-Relieving Heel Protector

Using Prevalon means you're providing your patients the most advanced heel ulcer protection available—and that's why it's the #1 hospital brand.1 Prevalon completely floats the heel for total pressure relief, and it stays on the foot. In fact, one facility using Prevalon saw zero pressure ulcers and a $1.9 million revenue preservation.2

Available with Integrated Foot and Leg Stabilizer Wedge to help prevent lateral foot and leg rotation, reducing risk of damage to the peroneal nerve.

  • Wide wedge base promotes stability, even on soft mattresses.
  • Crush-resistant foam on wedge withstands weight and constant pressure from patient's leg.
  • Built-in, pillow-style cushioning provides proven support surface.
  • Keeps heel visible for easy monitoring.
  • Reduces foot rotation inside the boot. Soft comfort grip interior minimizes friction and shear while keeping foot in proper position.
  • Easy to apply. Stretch panels adjust quickly for a secure, comfortable fit. No sharp edges or irritating straps. Breathable fabric provides good air circulation.
  • Contracture Strap delivers maximum support to bottom of the foot to help prevent plantar flexion contracture.
  • Available in three sizes—Standard, XL and Petite—for all of your patients.
