All our Australian Premium 100% A-Grade Medical Merino Sheepskins are carefully selected to insure a high wool fibre count. It is this dense and high fibre count that causes the wool pile to stand upright when shorn to a uniform length. The combination of these attributes is what makes Medical Sheepskin so supportive, cushioning, and non-abrasive for any part of the body resting on the Sheepskin.
Medical Sheepskins has been proven to improve the comfort and quality of life for people confined to a wheelchair or bed for prolonged periods. The wool's natural ability to cushion while absorbing moisture keeps the body dry and helps reduce the occurrence and severity of pressure sores, bedsores and decubitus ulcers.
These ulcerations can develop in 20 minutes … but often take up to six months to heal. Using our Medical Sheepskin Prevention Products protects loved ones from potential discomfort, adverse medical side issues, and promotes healing when it is possible.
With dimensions of 1140 length x 760 width cm (widest point), our Medical Sheepskin should be used on beds as the ‘sheet’ on which the person lies and can also be easily moved to a favorite chair or sofa.
Not all Sheepskin products are created equal. At Sheepskin Leather Factory, we specialize in premium-grade Australian Sheepskins for our entire product range.
Since we offer authentic Sheepskin products, our rugs and underlays will vary slightly in size dimensions.
