Pressure sores are easy to prevent, both in-home and at hospitals and aged care facilities. Still, they are widespread amongst people who spend all day seated or laying down. The medical sheep's wool has a fibre density higher than even the very best natural wool - which give it superior pressure redistribution properties. In this article we are going to talk about the benefits of the Sheepskin overlays to assess users with the effect and cost.
Introducing the Ausnew Sheepskin Overlay
Our beds and chairs can be places of comfort and healing, whether we are recovering from an injury or illness or laid up due to mobility issues or frailty. Unfortunately, even when confined to our beds we can face complications that can lead to more discomfort and hinder our healing, such as pressure sores. The Overlay is placed directly on the sheet and you lie on the Overlay for best effect. Skin -Wool contact gives best Pressure Sore Prevention. If you look after it, this sheepskin will last a life time.
Benefits of Sheepskin Overlay
✔️ Pressure relief
A medical sheepskin pad can help relieve pressure and swelling you’re experiencing from being stationary a long time. Having a sheepskin pad for your chair or bed can immensely increase the quality of your life.
✔️ Absorbs moisture
Another benefit of medical sheepskin is its ability to absorb moisture that sometimes builds up from laying down or sitting too long, and in the long run, creates a pressure sore. Medical sheepskin helps you feel fresh and clean throughout the day.
✔️ Temperature regulation
Since sheepskin is very breathable, it is ideal for a full night's sleep feeling cool and calm. Due to the fibres in the unspun wool, the sheepskin has an efficient airflow and works just as well in warm weather as cold.
The outer layer of protein on the fibre of the wool makes it smooth and favour movement and comfort for the user.
