Foam heel supports

BMJ Group Medical Reference

Some doctors and nurses suggest wearing a support under your heels. This cushions your heel and relieves the pressure when you're lying in bed. One study found that a heel support made out of foam works better to prevent pressure sores than a heel support made out of wool padding. [24]
