Medical Sheepskin. Pure virgin wool fleece. Absorbs twenty times more moisture than synthetics and allows air circulation for warmth in winter and coolness in summer. Natural treatment for decubitus prevention. One Sheepskin used as a bed pad can support the back, shoulders, and thighs. Decubitus Ulcers (bed sores) have three main causes: pressure, friction and moisture. 100% Genuine medical sheepskin helps prevent all types of bedsores by reducing pressure at the point of body contact, eliminating friction and tearing of the skin, preventing the buildup of surface moisture, keeping the patient dry. Coverage approximately 8 - 10 square feet.
Best results are obtained when the patient is placed directly on the wool of the sheepskin with no other textile material intervening. A long-time favorite choice of many caregivers for providing great comfort to their loved ones confined to bed as well as pressure relief.
