BENEFITS OF SHEEPSKIN

Decubitus Ulcers (bed sores) have three main causes: pressure, friction and moisture. 100% Genuine medical sheepskin from Sheepskin Ranch 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

One Sheepskin used as a bed pad can support the back, shoulders, and thighs. Small sections added under heels and elbows are beneficial with long term patients. Best results are obtained when the patient is placed directly on the wool of the sheepskin with no other textile material intervening.

ADDITIONAL PRODUCT BENEFITS

  • Resilient and springy to evenly distribute patient weight and relieve pressure point
  • Absorbs and recirculates moisture and perspiration into the air
  • Contains natural lanolin which soothes and aids in healing when in direct contact with the skin
  • Machine washable and dryable
  • Remains soft and pliable after repeated laundering
  • Resists build-up and conduction of static electricity and naturally flame resistant
  • Remains cool in summer and warm in winter
