Offload is an inflatable offloading device to help safely remove pressure from the heel area of vulnerable patients

Heels are especially vulnerable to pressure injuries due to the relative small surface area, thinness of the underlying tissue, and the proximity of the angular calcaneus (heel bone) to the skin surface.

  • Offloading the heel effectively reduces pressure to zero - heel sits over the ‘float zone’

  • Offers protection for the Achilles tendon

  • Reduces the impact of pressure, friction and shear

  • For use in bed or with feet elevated into horizontal position, easily secured with strap provided
