The Wool Bed Slipper / Arm Protector is made from 100% pure sheep’s wool. It is specially treated for Hospital conditions to help prevent pressure problems. The wool has a knitted back cloth that allows air to breathe, whereas sheepskin has a leather skin backing.
The Wool Bed Slipper / Arm Protector is placed under the foot with the heel laid in the shaped section. This is in the middle of the Bed Slipper so that it cannot be fitted the wrong way around. The Bed Slipper is big enough to protect the toes on most patients.
Sometimes this product is used to protect patient’s arms where fragile skin can easily be damaged when being attended to by nursing staff. The Wool pad can be cut with scissors if it is too large for some patients to make a more comfortable fit and the Hook & Loop Tape can also be cut shorter.
Fold it around the foot and leg, and secure in position with the Hook and Loop straps. Depending on the individual patient’s movement, the Hook and Loop straps can be a loose fit.
