Class 1 Medical Device
Adjustable 3-15mm Raise
Fits In Most Footwear
The Heelevator is a CE marked medical device designed by leading Podiatrists in association with NHS hospital clinics. It is essentially a heel insert that can be worn in most footwear that is easily adjusted to offer different levels of heel elevation.
What Is The Heelevator?
What Conditions Does The Heelevator Target?
The Heelevator has been developed primarily to target leg length discrepancy and associated symptoms.
Leg length discrepancy or anisomelia, is defined as a condition in which the paired lower extremity limbs have a noticeably unequal length. Leg length discrepancies can be caused by poor alignment of the pelvis or simply because one leg is structurally longer than the other. Symptoms include lower back, hip and knee pain.
The Heelevator can also offer effective relief from calf tightness and achilles tendonitis as well as offering up to 15mm height gain if used in its complete formation.
How Does The Heelevator Work?
Heel elevating inserts are recognised as effective treatment as they serve to equalise leg lengths which in turn reduce postural adjustment and unequal stresses on the limbs.
The Heelevator can be adjusted accordingly by peeling away layers from the underside of the insert to offer a raise of 15mm, 9mm, 6mm or 3mm before being accommodated in footwear of the shortened leg.
Please note that if a leg length discrepancy is undiagnosed it is advisable that a Podiatrist be consulted before use.
How Do You Use The Heelevator?
Please follow the Heelevator guidelines for use as illustrated in the rehabilitation leaflet provided with every product. Within this guide, clear instructions are detailed on how to use Heelevator for leg length discrepancy, calf tightness and achilles tendonitis.
Combining the use of the Heelevator with some of the exercises detailed in the rehabilitation guide should help alleviate discomfort.
As depicted below, the Heelevator process is as simple as peel, place and position.
PEEL AWAY DECREMENTS
Peel away underside layers to adjust heel raise from a maximum 15mm lift down to 12mm, 9mm, 6mm or 3mm.
