Sheepskin for Persistent Wounds & Swelling

Australian Medical Grade Sheepskin

This high-quality product is now available at Leading Edge Mobility in Lethbridge, but, what exactly does it do? This product is meant for people who need to stop bedsores from forming, and to heal persistent wounds.The Australian Merino Sheepskin has the densest wool fibre in the world. This reduces the pressure on the bony prominence’s of the body when laying or sitting for long periods of time.

What Does It Do?

It optimizes blood flow, so the heart won’t need to work as hard. It also keeps you cool in the summer and warm in the winter, and it absorbs moisture away from the skin, so you are always comfortable. The insulation in this hollow wool fibre even helps arthritis sufferers to sleep without pain, because it allows for increased blood flow to the joints, reducing inflammation and allowing for better sleep patterns.

 

How Do I Use It?

           You simply lay out the sheepskin on your bed to sleep on or set it in your wheelchair to sit on. It can even be used as wound wrappings or in boots! Australian Medical Sheepskin has been proven to speed up the healing process, prevent the future development of bedsores on the body, and moves with the body to prevent skin shearing or tears, or any other trauma such as bumps and scrapes.

 

How Do I Take Care of It?

           Washing this sheepskin is easy! You simply throw it in the washing machine and tumble dry in the dryer. This is the only sheepskin that can do this! You can identify this medical-grade sheepskin by the dyed green colour. It also comes with the Australian medical sheepskin medical standard label, so you know you’re getting the right kind.

 

Do I Need It?

           If you lack mobility, your chances of getting bedsores increases astronomically. If you already suffer from bedsores or persistent wounds, the Australian Medical Grade Sheepskin is what you want. Get comfortable, get better, and live the best life with the help of Leading Edge Mobility in Lethbridge.
