The WAFFLE® Heel Elevator Custom is designed to cradle the lower leg in air for pressure redistribution and to float the heel while sustaining the integrity of the foot and ankle. The Foot WAFFLE® Custom provides the same protection as the WAFFLE® Heel Elevator Custom but also sustains the integrity of the calf and Achilles area as well as the foot and ankle.

The product can be used for the prevention and treatment of pressure injuries (bedsores) on the foot. It is intended for use in bed, wheelchairs or day chairs but are not intended to be used while walking.
