Description

Reduction of Pressure and Shear at the heel The reduction of pressure and shear at the heel is an important point of interest in clinical practice. The posterior prominence of the heel sustains intense pressure, even when a pressure redistribution surface is used (EPUAP 2014). Attributing factors for increased risk are positioning diculties and lack of subcutaneous fat in this area.
