About the Heel Rest

The Elbow Rest eliminates elbow pressure by total suspension of the elbow for treatment and prevention of ulcers and pressure sores.

Spacer fabric, dual density pads, and open cavity design allow for optimal air-flow and promotes healing.

Our unique patient specific customizable pad system allows the user to place the pads around ulcer or sensitive areas, including the ulnar nerve. Pads can be rotated frequently for new positioning.

The customizable pads are made from a soft dual density breathable core that allows moisture to move away from the skin to help prevent further skin breakdown. Silver anti-microbial treated pad fabric and liner fabric kills harmful bacteria that can cause odor.

Heel Rest Chart

Studies show that the cotton/polyester blend fabrics finished with silver nanoparticles had excellent antibacterial effect against a Gram positive bacteria, Staphylococcus Aureus. These findings agree well with the experimental data reported by Lee et al.,(2003) and Yeo et al., (2003). Kim et al.,(2007) suggested that the inhibitory activity of silver nanoparticles was influenced by free radical generated on the surface of silver nanoparticles. The result of durability to wash of the treated fabric also showed long-lasting bacteriostatic effect. The Staphylococcus Aureus was completely abated on the silver finished textile even after being exposure to20 consecutive typical careful hand launderings condition. This verifies that nanosized silver particles, as observed in SEM images, were firmly attached onto the fiber surfaces. Primary irritation test in rabbit was examined to investigate the effects of dermal exposure of the treated fabric. Based on the results, nano silver treated textile did not show any visible signs of skin irritation.
