Gelbodies Heel and Elbow Protectors86600-02
When a patient is confined to a bed for a long period of time, pressure sores can form at multiple points on the body that do not have much fat to pad them, due to a decrease in blood circulation to those areas.
Depending on how severe the sore is, they can go down to the muscle and even the bone making it difficult and painful for the patient to move. Pressure sores can be very serious, especially if infected. To help prevent this painful condition, the Gelbodies Heel and Elbow Protectors were created.
The Gelbodies Heel and Elbow Protectors use a pressure relieving gel called "TRUGEL", which is found in high-end wheelchair cushions, to offer additional padding to points on the body where pressure sores tend to form. The addition of padding to these areas improves circulation to those points by evenly distributing your body weight in those areas. The gel will not bottom out.
By improving circulation, the Gelbodies Heel and Elbow Protectors not only prevent pressure sores from forming, but also provide the patient with added overall comfort helping them to relax. The gel is encased in a cotton-lycra "coolband" that stretches for an ideal fit and feels soft against the skin. Gelbodies Heel and Elbow Protectors help protect the heels and elbows from developing pressure sores, and help prevent nerve damage. Buy yours today from ActiveForever.com!
