Shear Comfort Heel Protectors
Shear Comfort Heel Protectors offer complete protection for the heels. 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. Velcro straps give plenty of room for adjustment. One size fits all.
Shear Comfort XD1900 Sheep’s Wool
These Heel Protectors are fabric-backed with medical sheep’s wool called XD1900, unique to Shear Comfort with a fibre density higher than even the very best natural sheepskins – which gives it superior pressure redistribution properties. This is achieved by weaving natural wool to a fabric backing, and is not to be confused with artificial sheepskins created from synthetic ‘wool.’ Natural wool is used, and treated to ensure it can be repeatedly washed up to 80°C. Plus, because Heel Protectors have no leather backing, it can be washed with normal household detergent.
All Shear Comfort products are machine washable, and guaranteed against deterioration for up to 50 washes. Heel Protectors are sold in pairs.
