Ozwool.net range of 100% Australian made medical grade sheepskin bed pads and our own range of 100% Australian made Medical products have been used for the prevention of pressure ulcers ( pressure sores or bedsores) for years, Our repeat customers and results are a testimony to the love of 100% As4480.1 bed sores treatment and prevention. The value and comfort of the curly wool pile in the medical grade sheepskin bed pads products are derived from the springy 29mm pile ( about 1 1/4″) of these specially tanned sheepskin hides are fully washable at high temperatures – see our sheepskin washing page. With a high pile density of soft but supportive curly wool pile, these springy resilient wool fibres create a cushion effect that distributes body weight and pressure over a wide area. Each fibre acts like a “mini pocket spring” that will deform to a body contour, and spread the load, particularly at pressure points.
