The foot is one of the most vulnerable and difficult areas to be addressed by preventive measures and heel pressure ulcers continue to account for a significant proportion of total pressure ulcers (25-30%).

When subjected to shear, the different tissue layers and blood vessels are distorted, which first manifests itself as redness and inflammation (pre-stage 1 and stage 1 pressure ulcers).

The Parafricta® Shear Protection Bootee is made using a smart, silk-like fabric - with ultra-low coefficients of dynamic and static friction - that reduces the risk of shear-related skin breakdown in patients at risk of Heel Pressure Ulcer formation
