Finally, a Solution That Works

Do you or a loved one suffer from pressure ulcers (commonly called “bed sores”) on your heels or ankles? Then you know they’re painful, debilitating, and difficult to heal. Left untreated, bedsores can lead to months of bed rest and even hospitalization.

The Ultimate Heel & Ankle Solution

GlideWear Heel & Ankle Protectors use a patented technology to protect skin and reduce the friction that causes bedsores. Unlike foam or blow-up booties, GlideWear Heel & Ankle Protectors stay in place. They can be worn alone or over or under thicker socks for warmth.

GlideWear Heel & Ankle Protectors are ideal for:

  • Elderly people with limited mobility who spend much of the day in bed, sitting, or in a wheelchair
  • Wheelchair users who have redness, pain, or bedsores on their heels or ankles
  • People recovering from surgery who are temporarily bed-bound
  • People who use orthotics, walking boots (cast boots), or orthopedic footwear

A Medical Tool

When you buy GlideWear Heel & Ankle Protectors, you’re not just buying a pair of socks. You’re buying a medical tool that will prevent the friction and shear that cause painful, debilitating bed sores. Remember, if you get one pressure ulcer, you’re at a higher risk for getting another one in the future.
