Mölnlycke® Z-FlexTM Fluidized Heel Boot

Best-practice pressure ulcer prevention for heels

We’ve heard how the demands on your time as a clinician continue to grow.  Each day presents many treatment challenges – and then there are prevention priorities, too. At Mölnlycke®, we take pressure ulcer (PU) prevention seriously and we want to make it easier for you to avoid unnecessary patient suffering and costs.


Patient compliance can make it difficult to maintain offloading of the heels over time. So our Molnlycke® Z-Flex Fluidized Heel Boot is designed with thermal regulating material to make it more comfortable. It also has a fluidized positioner that conforms to the Achilles and aids in protecting this vulnerable area too.

Adjustable shin straps to accommodate a variety of leg sizes

Facilitates use of sequential compression devices 

Anatomically neutral foot position is supported by an adjustable ankle positioning strap

Comfortable for the patient

Built-in gate allows skin assessment at scheduled intervals

Thermal regulating material helps keep legs comfortable longer

Did you know? 

  • After the sacrum, the heel is the second most common site for pressure ulcer incidence.1
  • The heel is also the most common site of pressure ulcers for the perioperative patient.1
  • 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 less.1
  • Heel ulcers may lead to osteomyelitis and even limb amputation.2
