The James Leg Elevator has a convoluted is designed to reduce or prevent swelling in the leg. The foot will be raised about 40 cm. There are lateral walls to help prevent the leg from rolling off the sides. If the patient has a plaster cast, some sharp ‘edges’ or ‘dags’ on the outside of the plaster cast may damage the cover, so it is recommended that a small towel is placed on the leg rest. Cover is stretchable, breathable material, and is heat sealed to reduce cross infection. Can be wiped clean with disinfectant.
