The silicone gel heel protector is a soft, flexible pad designed to cushion and protect the heel from pressure, friction, and impact. It is typically worn inside shoes or sneakers, and can provide relief from pain and discomfort associated with conditions such as plantar fasciitis, heel spurs, or general heel pain. The silicone gel material conforms to the shape of the heel, providing a comfortable fit, while also absorbing shock and reducing pressure on sensitive areas. Silicone gel heel protectors are often recommended by podiatrists and other healthcare professionals as a non-invasive and affordable way to manage heel pain and prevent further damage to the foot.
An alternative use for the silicone gel heel protector is to help manage cracked heels. After using a foot file to remove the hard dry skin, and applied a good cream, then wear this silicone gel heel protector overnight, so the cream is well absorbed into the skin. Using this approach substantially speeds up the treatment for that dry and cracked skin around the heel.
Frequently asked questions about the Silicone Gel Heel Protector:
How long does shipping take?
We ship every day. Most orders are sent the day we get them. However, we are at the mercy of Australia Post or the different couriers that we use after that. This can vary from a few days up to a week or so and obviously more during the festive season. We do try our best to get them to you as quickly as possible.
What size is the Silicone Gel Heel Protector?
They only come in ‘one size fits all’. They are flexible and can easily adapt to large and small feet.
Can the Silicone Gel Heel Protector be reused?
Yes. If it gets dirty or if cream builds up in as you wear it overnight for cracked heels, then it can be gently washed with water.
