GlideWear Heel & Ankle Protection Socks
Left untreated, bedsores on the heels and ankles can lead to months of bed rest and hospitalization. Nip them in the bud with GlideWear Heel & Ankle Protection Socks. They use a patented technology to protect skin and reduce the friction that causes bedsores and pressure ulcers.
GlideWear Heel & Ankle Protection Socks are easy to use, comfortable, and durable. Unlike some foam or blow-up booties, they stay in place well. GlideWear Heel & Ankle Protection Socks can be worn alone, or over or under thicker socks for warmth.
They’re designed for wheelchair users, people recovering from surgery, bed-bound seniors, people who use orthotics, and for use with walking boots (cast boots) and orthopedic footwear. Unlike traditional knit socks, GlideWear® Heel & Ankle Protection Socks are designed specifically for individuals with edema (leg swelling), resulting in a larger circumference around the calf, ankle, and foot that doesn’t restrict.
