“Since routinely using the Rooke boots, a practice which we started over five years ago, this problem has been virtually eliminated.
I cannot remember the last time one of our patients developed a decubitus heel ulcer while on our service…..We look forward to further innovations by your company.”

“I have used different Rooke boots in the last several years with great satisfaction and all of my patients who undergo distal revascularization wear the boot in the postoperative course…”

“I am a firm believer in the effectiveness of the Rooke Boot. Both times they were brought into Benefis Healthcare the incidence of heel ulcers has decreased.”
Jeanne Knecht RN, CWON
“We had a 0% incidence of heel/toe ulcers for patients that wore Rooke Boots….
The patient himself was not a believer until he finally saw the results, and walked out of the inpatient rehab on his own two feet.”

“I feel very strongly that these boots decrease the incidence of decubitus ulcers on the heel of the patient with peripheral vascular disease in the 90-95% range.”

“We are currently using the Rooke boots routinely in patients undergoing any lower extremity revascularization or abdominal aortic aneurysm procedures. Our impetus to use the Rooke boot initially was due to a dismaying number of patients who developed decubitus heel ulcers during their perioperative course. Despite increased vigilance and care on the part of our resident and nursing staff, this had remained a persistent problem. Since routinely using the Rooke boots, a proactive which we started over five years ago, this problem has been virtually eliminated. I cannot remember the last time one of our patients developed a decubitus heel ulcer while on our service. To my knowledge there is no product on the market which eliminates this problem as effectively as the Rooke boots.
Additionally, the boots are very well received by our patients. The majority of our patients really enjoy wearing them. We will continue to use the Rooke boots in all of our vascular patients.”
