Bruise on heel

Hello,

Is there a product or method of padding my heel, so that it is less likely to bruise in a shoe? I amn a c3-4 quadraplegic with no sensation in the foot. The reddened or bruised area is a circle with two-thirds of of the circle's radius on the bottom of the foot. My concern is that developing a decubitus ulcer will make matters worse.


Thanks.
