AeroSpacer Heel Off-loader
The AeroSpacer heel off-loader is a revolutionary but simple alternative that removes the many drawbacks of existing heel off-loading devices.
Comprising three layers of 3D spacer material with a top quilted layer, the AeroSpacer offers many benefits thanks to its innovative material:
· Does not cause sweating, indeed 3D spacer textile it has been demonstrated to effectively manage microclimate
· Provides enhanced pressure redistribution and reduces shear stress
· Improves comfort and increases concordance
· Does not inhibit mobilisation
· Improves governance with infection prevention and extends product life as it can be laundered between patients
· Encased in a welded Xtreme™ moisture vapour permeable, waterproof cover with a non-slip base to ensure it stays in place throughout the night
· Can be wiped clean or laundry disinfected and tumble dried
Improves governance with improved infection prevention as the AeroSpacer Heel Off-loader can be machine washed and tumble dried, meaning it can be used multiple times with different patients, delivering real value for money over an expected five-year life.
Comprises an open, breathable structure, removing heat and humidity at the skin/surface interface. In comparison to other heel devices, this will create a cooler, more comfortable environment and may increase concordance with use. The design eliminates the need for a bulky heel boot.
The heel off-loader has been specifically designed to absorb shear strain and adapt in shape during use. This means it can also be used as a positioning aid, not only to off-load the heels, but to aid patients who may need support on one side.
In addition to off-loading both heels, the design increases the loaded surface area in comparison to pillows and other heel off-loading devices, therefore providing greater pressure redistribution, support for the calf and improved comfort.
