Effectively off-loads the malleoli

These wounds are very difficult to heal due to the extremely thin overlying skin.

Manages peri-ulcer swelling

Physician-designed “Horseshoe cushion” allows lymphatic drainage and edema release in the physiologic direction toward the heart, minimizing edge effect while off-loading the ankle bone (malleolus).

Washable moisture-wicking material

Constructed from moisture-wicking fabric, the entire device (including the foam insert) is washable, making it easy to maintain a clean treatment environment.

Hemless design

Our no-hem design prevents skin irritation of the shin and foot that is common in other products. The Ankle Keeper limits exposure of the skin to stitching wherever possible.

“Dr. Finley’s design addresses critical factors, including anatomy and the physical issues surrounding an immobile patient. I have personally worn a Heel Keeper and found it to be comfortable to the point that I was unaware I was wearing it after a short amount of time.”

"I have been a caregiver for over 24 years and own an Adult Foster Care home.  I have never come across such an amazing product for pressure sores. Recently, a sweet resident with Parkinson’s developed large pressure sores on both of her heels. The resident’s son had heard of the Heel Keeper and suggested I try it.  It was the best product I have ever used for pressure sores. In a short period of time they were gone! Our resident continues to wear the products and has had no recurrence of the pressure sores. I highly recommend and am so glad I discovered this product."
