Description
 
Medical grade sheepskin rugs increase comfort by relieving pressure points and reducing the development of bed sores.
This happens in two ways: First, the dense shearling wool naturally distributes pressure. This immediately increases blood flow and decreases discomfort at common and sensitive pressure points. This is especially beneficial for patients who are confined to one position for long periods of time.
Second, the wool pile provides a continuously dry environment due to the natural breathability of the wool fibres. Lambswool wicks away moisture and promotes air flow to maintain a dry and insulating comfort. This greatly reduces the development or expansion of bed sores, as bacteria can't thrive in a dry environment. This breathability occurs because merino wool is a soft and hollow spring coil fiber.

The wool pile in all of our medical sheepskin pads has been trimmed to 1.25" to reduce matting from over use. Our sheepskin pads are Australian origin hides and ultra durable. They have extra dense wool and are machine washable (simple washing instructions included).
Medical sheepskin pelts are specially selected for their larger size and high wool density. They are most commonly uses in beds and wheelchairs, but are very versatile and can also be used on recliners, chairs, and couches.

Recommend June 16, 2018
Reviewer: Ken Connick from Saskatoon, SK Canada  
Very comfortable, using it as a wheel chair seat & back cover. Would have been nice if it was about 3 to 4 inches longer but it fits ok. I think Mary must have sold her little lamb

I ordered this rug for my disabled sister who lives in another city. I ordered the wrong size but had no trouble returning and exchanging it for a larger size. Ashley was very sympathetic and helpful.

Sheepskin May 12, 2018
Reviewer: Gloria Taylor from Kitchener, ON Canada  
I recently had hip replacement surgery in Toronto.  As an old nurse I remembered using sheepskin under frail patients to prevent ulcers of the skin. Very difficult to treat....easier to prevent.
So although I have not been bed ridden for long, I enjoyed the soft sheepskin under me knowing I would not suffer any unnecessary complications.
I can't recommend them enough!!
