What are Pressure Sores
Pressure Sores can be an expensive and painful issue. For many Pressure Sores are found too late, and the path to cure is long and painful. As bodies get frail or less mobile, the pressure on spots increases due to the reduced body mass and the increased time spent in one position or another. When a person is bedridden or spends an increasing amount of time in one spot, when they turn in the bed their elbows, feet, arms and knees take a lot of friction which causes sores and sometimes infections. The elderly and frail have more problems with this than anyone, but anybody can get these problems when they are stuck in a bed or chair long enough.
Australian Medical Sheepskin offers fantastic protection for these very problems and the cost compared to other treatments and equipment that the medical establishments offer is very affordable. Also, Medical sheepskin have been developed to prevent pressure sores, and prevention is better than going through the curing process

How does sheepskin aid in helping these problems? Well, Sheepskin is very supportive, much more than these stretchable wraps you get from the doctor’s office or hospitals. It is also a Natural Product.
In some cases, there are options, these include, the stretchable wraps made from cotton and polyester are wrapped around the body and usually fit tight. Even if you wrap these loosely, they end up being tight because of swelling. These other materials fit right up against the skin causing the skin to get hot and sweaty. These factors cause the skin to break down and get sores. The heat and sweat can cause a breeding ground for bacteria to flourish and grow, causing infections.
Sheepskin is unique because the natural wool pile allows the space needed to keep good blood flow. The medical sheepskin is specially treated to keeps things nice and fresh because sheepskin provides for air to continually circulate the body part being protected. This airflow cuts down on the heat and stops perspiration. Even if there were some sweating the sheepskin would naturally absorb it away from the skin keeping it nice and dry. What happens to this perspiration? The airflow that continually flows between the sheepskin fleece keeps any sweat dry.
There is no reason not to use Australian medical sheepskin, as it is very affordable. Sheepskin will protect and keeps things dry and fresh. People are always amazed at how cool sheepskin is.
