Bed sores on the heels and ankles can be painful, debilitating, and difficult to heal. Left untreated, they can lead to hospitalization. GlideWear Heel & Ankle Protection Socks Bed are designed for people in long-term care, hospice, or on bed rest — as well as people who use wheelchairs. GlideWear Heel & Ankle Protection Socks use patented technology to protect skin and reduce the friction and shear that cause bed sores (also called “pressure sores” or “pressure ulcers”). Unlike foam or blow-up booties, GlideWear socks stay in place. They can be worn alone or over or under thicker socks for warmth.

  • Seniors with limited mobility who spend much of the day in bed, sitting, or in a wheelchair

  1. Steve

    I developed big blisters on the back of my heels from my hiking boots. My skin healed right away with these socks and the blisters haven’t come back. These socks were a great gift!


      Thank you for your feedback, Steve. We’re delighted to hear that the GlideWear Heel & Ankle Socks worked well for your heel blister issues.

  2. Donald Hofmeister

    I have developed from time to time a dermatitis on top of my foot and around the ankle. The skin was sensitive not only during the day from my sock but also from the bed sheet. The heel and ankle sock relieved the symptoms and aided in a quick recovery of the area. If and when the dermatitis returns I’ll grab my GlideWear socks quickly!
