Gelbodies Heel & Elbow Protector Small [Gbheps010]
Gelbodies Heel & Elbow Protector Small [Gbheps010] helps to protect both the heel and elbows from the development of pressure sores.
The Gelbodies protectors use a pressure relieving gel, 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 the body weight in those areas. By improving circulation, the Gelbodies protectors not only help to prevent pressure sores from forming, but also provide the patient with added overall comfort helping them to relax.
