Elevate Heel Elevation Cushion

by Evergreen Medical Products

The Elevate is a heel elevation and suspension cushion designed to safely protect and off-load high-risk ankles and heels. The contoured shape of breathable gel-infused memory foam provides maximum immersion and pressure redistribution along the calf, so the heels can be free from contact with the mattress surface.

The Elevate is suitable for clients at high risk for skin breakdown due to circulation and/or skin issues, or for those who have an existing pressure injury on the heels or ankles. It promotes maintained leg positioning through raised side bolsters and stays in place against the mattress surface with a non-slip bottom cover. The simple design allows for ease of use in any care environment.

Made in Canada and environmentally conscious, the Elevate features CertiPUR-US® certified foam (free from harmful chemicals) and BioFlx® sustainable foam (same comfort as traditional foam but with a smaller environmental footprint).

Features

Clinical Benefits for Skin Protection:

  • Immersion: The contoured shape of breathable gel-infused foam provides maximum surface contact for the posterior lower extremity.
  • Off-loading: High-risk heels and ankles can be safely off-loaded with pressure redistributed along the calf area. All contact surfaces are contoured to promote even weight-bearing, and gel-infused foam edges reduce the development of pressure points.
  • Friction and shear reduction: The highly immersive gel-infused foam top layer reduces any contact with firm surfaces/edges as clients move while sleeping. Cooling properties of the gel-infused foam and breathable cover fabric reduce temperature and humidity buildup to decrease the risk of skin “sticking” to the cover, causing friction and skin tears.

Additional Clinical Benefits:

  • Positioning: Side bolsters maintain the position of legs on the surface. Gel-infused foam promotes maximum immersion and protection should lower legs move during sleep and make contact with the cushion.
  • Comfort: Gel-infused foam reduces heat and humidity, leading to discomfort. Immersion allows full contact and reduces pressure points along the lower extremities. The cushion is not attached to the body and therefore allows for movement of legs while sleeping, enhancing client comfort.
  • Breathable Stretch Cover: The cover is designed with pressure distribution characteristics (stretch and breathability) to ensure optimal performance of the gel-infused foam. The cover incorporates ultrasonic welded seam technology to meet infection and pest control standards. The GripEx bottom fabric reduces movement and sliding against the mattress surface to maintain position. The zipper is placed on the bottom of the cover to reduce any potential contact with the skin.
  • Durability: A high-density base layer is used to maintain shape, provide structure, and keep the Elevate in place. High-density foam has a longer useful life and will ensure the Elevate stays in place.
  • CertiPUR-US® & BioFlx®: The CertiPUR-US® seal means the Elevate has been tested to meet rigorous standards for emissions, content, performance, and durability. The foam is made without ozone depleters and other harmful chemicals. Our BioFlx® foam has the same high comfort and performance with a smaller environmental footprint by replacing fossil fuel ingredients with natural seed-based oils such as soybeans, which lessens greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Easy-to-clean: The cover is designed to be cleaned with hospital-grade disinfectant wipes to promote ease of cleaning and infection control. The cover is fluid-resistant, non-allergenic, antibacterial, and tested to ensure a long life in all care environments.
