Medical Uses of Wool:


Pressure sores or ulcers ( commonly known as Bed Sores) continue to challenge the health professional. Pressure ulcers occur too frequently when one considers that they can probably be avoided. Pressure relieving devices can protect the skin from the effects of pressure, friction and moisture. Australian Medical sheepskins are one of the best devices available for prevention of pressure sores. They provide excellent protection when placed under the back, calves and heels.

The new HiTemp Urine Resistant Australian Medical Sheepskin confers all of the above benefits and can be washed at 80o Celsius, to disinfect it. When washed with Woolskin, both thermal and chemical disinfection occurs.

The dense 30mm wool pile of HiTemp Urine Resistant Medical Sheepskins provides an interface between the patient and the bed that reduces pressure, friction and moisture- the primary causes of pressure or bed sores.  

                            HiTemp UR Sheepskins are used in Hospitals.

Not only do HiTemp UR Medical Sheepskins give pressure relief, they are extremely comfortable; contributing greatly to the well being of the patient. They are large enough to give protection from the shoulders to below the buttocks.

HiTemp Urine Resistant Medical Sheepskin is also used in the production of the Sheepskin Pressure Care Boot ( M171). This elegant boot assures a comfortable fit for all feet. The foot is placed on the sheepskin sole and the sides and back then wrap the foot in the high density fleece. Being completely adjustable, all feet can be fitted perfectly. Use Woolskin  for washing.

Wool is also used for footcare. Footcare Lambswool- L101 is used to wrap around toes to cushion corns. The soft lambswool rope is also used in the toes of ballet shoes.

                                        Wrap Lambswool around your toes for improved comfort.

Sheepskin is used extensively where pressure reduction is needed. See our On-Line Store for pressure reduction products .

Wool-pile, a cheaper alternative to sheepskin, has a number of advantages. You get the benefits of wool, but are not restricted by the size of the sheep. Machine Washable wool-pile is easy to wash and dries quickly. See our On-Line Store for  wool-pile products.
