The Darco Heelift ® Traction Boot is ideally suited for stabilization of fractures prior to surgery, pre-operative traction and pain relief in fractures. The Darco Heelift ® is also frequently used for post-operative treatment and the suspension of the heel for bedridden, high-risk patients. The Darco Heelift ® Traction Boot inventively applies skin traction to stabilize femur prior to surgery. During the pre-operative period, when the patient misses control of the leg, the Heelift ® prevents a pointed foot, a folding foot and rotation. The Darco Heelift ® Traction Boot is easy to convert to the regular Heelift ®, can be washed at 60°C, can be re-sterile and can be used left and right.
