Heel Protectors are the best way to prevent and heal pressure sores on the heel
Heel pressure sores are caused when pressure mounts against the heel. This pressure limits blood flow to the skin, making the skin vulnerable to damage and this allows for sores to develop. A pressure sore on the heel can occur very quickly when movement is limited. The use of a heel protector boot or pad allows for the heel area to be offloaded, and therefore increase the bloodflow. Heel protectors that are designed to offload pressure from the heel are usually constructed of foam or air-cushioning, they will support the lower leg and offload the bony heel area of the foot.
