Span+Aids® Heel Manager

Heel Manager helps with heel ulcers as they are the most common facility-acquired pressure ulcer in long-term acute care facilities and second most common pressure ulcer overall.



Wider, skin-friendly design for 30% more heel relief


Heat and moisture reduction capabilities


Extreme comfort and support for both legs

Heel Offloading Elevator with high-end support features for care of damaged, weakened skin

Effective offloading is essential for the care of the bony prominence in the heel – one of long-term care’s vulnerable tissue sites.   In addition to fully offloading both heels, the Span-America Heel Manager’s gentle slope aids in circulation – key for patients with diabetes, neu­ropathy, and peripheral vascular disease.  The 30 percent larger, tissue-friendly, dual layer design with ultra-high per­formance foam supports the calves with new levels of comfort and stability. Total heel offloading is the only effective method for heel ulcer prevention

As the second most common pressure ulcer site, heels require special attention and care. Heel ulcers can lead to serious complications, increase healthcare costs and lead to regulatory ramifications (i.e., compliance issues with F-314).
National Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel (NPUAP) directive: “Ensure that the heels are free of the surface of the bed. Heel-protection devices should elevate the heel completely (offload them) in such a way as to distribute the weight of the leg along the calf.” 1
