About the Sheepskin – Full Medical
Medical Sheepskins are prepared from specially selected sheepskins which are treated according to the Australian Wool Corporation standards. These sheepskins have dense springy wool fibres which help support the body and allow air flow. This can keep the patient cool in summer and warm in winter. The fibres can absorb up to 30% of its weight in water without feeling wet. These features make it comfortable and help prevent bed sores.
Sometimes there can be marks on the back of the skin. This can happen in manufacturing, but they do not affect the function of the sheepskin.
The sizes indicated may vary, as individual sheep may vary in size.
