Heel Protector

Our Medical Sheepskin Heel Protector is designed to provide protection for the at-risk heel and ankle areas. They are scientifically constructed to ensure that needed seams do not create pressure points. Our Medical Heel Protector is easy to position properly then secure via wide adjustable Velcro straps.

Our Australian Premium 100% A-Grade Medical Merino Sheepskin Heel Protector is made from exactly the same extraordinarily high grade wool as all our other Medical Sheepskins and 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-abrasivefor heels and ankles.

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.

Bedsores, pressure sores, and decubitus ulcers can develop in only 20 minutes and many take up to six months to heal. Using our Bed Sore Prevention Products to protect those who are confined to a bed or wheelchair is a logical and humane way of caring for your loved ones. 

Please note: Medical Sheepskin Heel Protectors are sold separately and not as a pair.


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.
