DESCRIPTION

Often the resident will range out, but it may be necessary to float the heel and support the foot to prevent foot drop. This device allows you to support the foot at various angles by adjusting the straps accordingly, thereby inhibiting foot drop.

Measurement Instructions

All measurements are to be taken in inches with the patient lying in the supine position. It's best if measurements are taken with a yard stick.

  • A. Measure from behind the knee (Popliteal) straight down to the surface of the mattress.
  • B. Measure from behind the knee (Popliteal) to the heel. Do not measure the curve of the patients calf.
  • C. Place the ruler flat on the mattress surface and measure from the heel to where the thigh or buttocks first meets the bed
  • D.While holding the heel off the bed in the position needed to float the heel, measure the distance between the heel and bed. This would be the thickness of foam needed to "float" the wound.
Please Indicate Measurements before ordering:

Before ordering you will need to have measurements for A, B, C & D and also we will need to know on which leg side the device is to be used.
