Heelift Glide represents a brand new chapter in the Heelift story.

DM Systems is proud to introduce Heelift® Glide, the most recent addition to its family of pressure offloading boots.
“Heelift Glide takes heel offloading to a whole new level,” said DM Systems founder Denis B. Drennan, MD. “The smooth exterior allows patients to change positions without catching the boot on sheets or blankets, while the forefoot strap helps keep the boot properly positioned on the patient’s leg.”
The new features mean the new suspension boot stays in place, moves with the patient and provides greater patient comfort, Drennan noted.
“This saves time for staff at hospitals and long-term care facilities because the Heelift Glide helps to eliminate the need for repeated adjustments and reapplications,” he said.
The new pressure offloading boot offers the same benefits as other Heelift products, Drennan observed, adding “a boot that reduces pressure on the heel can help prevent costly heel pressure ulcer treatment.
“For those who have an existing heel pressure ulcer, the effective offloading and comfort of our Heelift products mean healthcare professionals can concentrate on healing the wound,” Drennan said.
Incorporating years of feedback from clinicians and patients, the new pressure offloading boot:
- Incorporates a soft material that cradles the calf, redistributing pressure over a wider area and providing interior grip
- Is 40% lighter, cooler and less bulky than a pillow-style boot
The boot’s fabric covering, tricot backing and innovative stitching protects the patient’s sensitive skin, Drennan reported.
“Heelift Glide represents a brand new chapter in the Heelift story,” he said.
