Gelbodies Heel and Ankle Protectors are designed for individuals who have been confined to a bed for a long period of time and are at risk of developing pressure sores. The Gelbodies Heel and Ankle 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 is encased in a cotton-lycra "coolband" that stretches for an ideal fit and feels soft against the skin. Gelbodies Heel and Ankle Protectors help protect the heel and ankle areas from pressure sores and nerve damage.
