Heel Up is Levabo’s series of heel lifts for pressure relief of the heel. Developed in collaboration with leading Danish wound nurses, the range ensures optimal comfort and hygiene in the treatment and prevention of pressure ulcers on the heel.
The range includes both heel lifts for people who are bedridden and for people with a higher functional level. For example, the Heel Up Short heel lifter is optimised for use in a wheelchair, where it does not impede the user’s mobility.
Heel Up heel lifters are inflatable and covered with nonwoven felt, which is a skin-friendly material that is moisture-absorbing, heat-transporting, soft and comfortable.
You can see all our heel lifters in the product overview, and read more about each product.
