Mölnlycke® Static Air Heel Protectors

Lower limb air suspension therapy

Our Mölnlycke® Static Air Heel Protectors were developed by a physician. You can use them for reliable, cost-effective and easy-to-apply pressure relief therapy for your patients in all care settings. The design uses air displacement with a unique low-profile single air chamber that relieves and equalises pressure – cradling the patient’s vulnerable
Achilles tendon.

The Static Heel Protectors contour to your patient’s foot shape, for effective air suspension therapy.

Did you know? 

  • After the sacrum, the heel is the second most common site for pressure ulcer incidence.
  • The heel is also the most common site of pressure ulcers for the perioperative patient1.
  • Some of your patients are more prone to heel pressure ulcer development – due to validated risk factors such as diabetes mellitus, vascular disease, immobility and an overall Braden Scale score of 18 or less1.
  • Heel Ulcers may lead to osteomyelitis and even limb amputation2.
