HeelMedix® Advanced Heel Protector Studies
Heel pressure injuries are common in bedbound patients and can have severe clinical implications and associated costs. Heel protectors are important devices recommended by the National Pressure Injury Advisory Panel to offload the heels of at-risk patients, to prevent and treat these pressure injuries.
This white paper, sponsored by Medline Industries, Inc., first discusses the prevalence of heel pressure injuries, especially in patients with impaired mobility, and the high costs of treatment, including issues related to Medicare reimbursement.
