Home Kit to treat heel pressure ulcers

Evanston, Illinois . . . . DM Systems introduces the Heelift Home Kit for the home healthcare market. The kit is designed to aid in the prevention and treatment of heel pressure ulcers with home-based patients who may be at risk.

With Heelift Home Kit, patients at home will benefit physically from the use of a hospital-grade product to protect against heel ulcers or to treat pre-existing conditions. And home health aides and caregivers will benefit psychologically from knowing that they have provided their patients with superior care.

Heelift Home Kit contains one Heelift Suspension Boot, the product proven effective in prevention and treatment of heel pressure ulcers, a laundry bag and an instruction sheet in English, Spanish, German and French. The kit is offered with a choice of either an Original Heelift made from convoluted medical grade foam or a Heelift Smooth Boot made of smooth foam.

Packaged in a full-color, multi-lingual box, Heelift Home Kit makes an attractive addition to home healthcare care displays in retail or home medical equipment (HME) showrooms.

New, slimmer design Heelift and Heelift Smooth Suspension Boots with features to increase comfort, ease of use and support are used in the Home Kit. The new Heelift design includes extended stitching along the top rim of the boot to narrow the forefoot, creating a slimmer profile that is less bulky and more comfortable for the patient. The redesign also features a simplified strap design for easier, one-handed closure and adjustment of strap tension.
