The Shear Comfort Heel Protectors shield the skin on the heels and provide protection for existing damaged skin. The wool layer wraps around the heel and ankle, leaving the rest of the foot free to move. Seams are positioned on the exterior of the protector to relieve the skin from areas of high pressure or friction.
A velcro strap provides a comforting and accommodating fit allowing a simple adjustment throughout the day if required.
Made with natural properties of fabric-backed medical sheepskin wool, unique to Shear Comfort, ensures that comfort and protection is provided. The moisture dissipation qualities of the wool ensure any perspiration is effectively wicked away from the skin.
All Shear Comfort products are machine washable and are guaranteed against deterioration for up to 50 washes. Available in sizes Small, Medium & Large.
Please note: As these are hand made sometimes there is a small dispatch delay of 1-2 weeks as they need to be made up.
The measurement to work from is the ’45 degree’ angle from the back of the heel around the foot to the crease between the foot and the lower leg and back again, measuring this circumference in cm:
Small: from 31 cm
Medium: from 38 cm
Large from: 45 cm
Material: XD1900 Fabric-Backed Medical Sheepskin
Machine washable up to 80 degrees Celsius
The fabric-backed material on which the wool is woven makes it easy to wash up to 80 degrees Celsius – for a hygienic wash.
Shear Comfort XD1900 does not require special shampoo, and can be washed with normal household detergent up to a temperature of 80°C, although you can use Shear Comfort Wool Care Shampoo to condition the wool and utilise the fungicidal and mitricidal properties of the shampoo.
