Herbst Cradle

Herbst Cradle patented orthosis is designed for plantar flexion contractures, pressure-free positioning and prevention or healing of decubital ulcers on the heel and malleoli. Made of soft, ripstop nylon, Herbst Cradle™ is cool and soothing to the patient’s compromised skin. Anti-bacterial filling is strategically placed, creating a soft cradle that alleviates pressure while a pocket of beads in the centerwall of the leg portion enhances blood circulation. Plastic posterior and plantar brace keeps foot at a 90-degree angle while the patient rests comfortably in bed. Anti-rotation bar prevents lower extremity rotation and adjusts for right or left foot. Hook & loop closures allow for secure and expedient application. Extremely lightweight, Herbst Cradle™ weighs only 15 oz. Designed by a podiatrist, the Herbst Cradle™ is a cost effective treatment for decubital ulcers, bed linen abrasions, lower extremity rotation and plantar flexion contractures.
