Medical Sheepskin products have been successful nursing aids since the early 1960’s due to their unique heat regulating properties, pressure distrubtion and high comfort. Wool is not like any other fibre as it can absorb moisture up to 33% of its own weight and still feel dry against the skin. Medical sheepskins provide a number of key benefits. They can be washed repeatedly at 80 degrees for infection control. They can reduce shear forces on skin that is delicate and susceptible to skin tears. They wick perspiration away from the skin and they can help to regulate temperature which can aid in the healing of pressure sores.
