Repose Foot Protectors are a unique product designed specifically to minimise the risk of pressure damage to heels by off-loading. A significant proportion of pressure ulcers occur on the heels due to a combination of pressure, friction and shear.
Whilst support surfaces assist in reducing pressure, only a specific device such as the Repose Foot Protector can ensure that pressure on the foot is relieved totally. Clinical studies have shown the heel Protectors to be effective in a wide variety of settings.
The Repose Foot Protector is now available in a range of sizes to support a variety of patient needs. New sizes include the Repose Foot Protector Small and Repose Foot Protector Extra Small products.
The low-air technology within the Repose foot protectors, ensure weight is distributed evenly and doesn’t lose its shape. Designed to relieve pressure on soft tissue areas and provide comfort, the protectors can be used with other dynamic or static support surfaces. Reducing the impact of pressure, friction and shear, the protectors will also deflate down to a compact size, ideal for cleaning and transportation purposes.
