Pressure ulcers are a huge problem in long-term care facilities and heel ulcers are the second most likely form of pressure ulcer that happens. Medline has developed heel protection in the form of their Heelmedix®, Heel Raiser® Ultra and Heel Raiser® Pro. These protection devices enable a patient’s heels to be elevated without muscle strain.
To help inhibit odor-causing bacteria, Medline partners with Ultra-Fresh. The treatment Ultra-Fresh provides helps to keep the heel protector device smelling fresher and cleaner during its useful life – perfect for long-term care of patients.
