Welcome to the NelDerm E-Booth - Learn about the Heel P.O.D!

The Heel P.O.D.  provides an alternative to the current pressure offloading devices in a way that is simple, effective, and improves patient compliance.  It is a hygienic option, as the removable cover is waterproof and easily cleaned with a simple sanitation wipe or damp cloth.  The P.O.D. contains 4 layers of memory foam, which is more comfortable for the patient, while also making the product conforming during continuous wear.  The single-strap provides ease-of-use for clinicians, and the unique, open-foot design offers visual assurance of effective offloading. 

Our Heel P.O.D.  benefits the patient by providing true, effective offloading of the heel in a way that is comfortable, allows for range of motion, and won't cause overheating, all of which improves compliance.  For the clinician, it provides a simple, time-saving alternative to what has previously been offered for pressure offloading.  It allows for direct visualization that the heel is offloaded and in the correct position, along with easy access for assessments and dressing changes.
