The Foot & Leg Elevator is designed for both comfort and support. The patent pending, sculptured channeled position canals, allows resting of the lower extremity while awake or sleeping. Unlike traditional supporting products, the Foot and Leg Elevator is Dynamic, allowing freedom of movement, without the constraints of being immobile. This is important because being able to move the legs, increases circulation, while relieving muscle and tendon fatigue, allowing muscular activity to pump blood back towards the heart.
Elevating Feet & Legs is Good for Your Health
Elevating your legs for 30 to 60 minutes a day , can improve the health and wellness of Veins and the Circulatory System. Leg elevation can relieve the symptoms associated with varicose veins and swelling of the lower extremity. Elevating the legs can also help in prevention of developing DVT’s ( deep vein thrombosis ), a common and dangerous blood clot that can travel to the lungs, causing a pulmonary embolism.
Post Surgical Device
The Foot and Leg Elevator can be used post surgically in those individuals that require stable elevation and control of excessive internal and external rotation, as seen in post knee replacement, ankle injury, and/or foot/leg fracture. Elevating the legs reduces swelling and decreases pain to the injured area. The sculptured channel within the device will keep the legs aligned, while awake or sleeping, preventing injury from tossing and turning.
