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.

Very Nice! January 19, 2019
Reviewer: Joanne Hinsperger-Scott from Bonnyville, AB Canada  
WOW! I was impressed with the size of the sheepskin and the thickness (density) of the wool. I originally purchased this with the intent to cut it up to make custom fitted covers for lateral supports on an electric wheelchair, but after seeing how nice the sheepskin is I didn't have the heart to cut it up.  The wheelchair supports press against the patient's inner arm thus contributing to pain. Padding the area with pillows only helped for short periods of time. Instead, the occupational therapist came up with the idea of draping the entire sheepskin sideways across the back of the wheelchair thus covering both side supports in the process. So far, the sheepskin has been successful in padding the lateral supports so the patient is more comfortable. I found the wool is a bit more coarse than I expected but the person using the sheepskin finds it soft to his touch. So everyone is different.

It shipped faster than expected and was just as they said it would be! I am happy with the service, especially as I purchased it for a loved one who would be going into hospital at any moment; really appreciated the prompt service.

Love the medical sheepskin January 6, 2019
Reviewer: Gloria deVilliers from Whitehorse , YT Canada  
We are very glad to receive the extra large medical sheepskin at Christmas time. I'm very pleased with how quickly my order arrived, in the middle of rotating postal strikes!
I bought one for my common-law husband, for his chair. We love that it's so soft and retains body heat for so long.
If only our new recliners would hurry up and arrive!
I'm getting myself one, when our recliners get here.
Then we will truly be Royalty!
We are very grateful and very fortunate, thank you.
