Medical Sheepskins for  wheelchair Pressure Sore Prevention.

Pressure Sore Prevention is the logical and most humane method you have of caring for those confined to a bed or wheelchair. Pressure sores are unnecessary and, 95% of the time, can be prevented. -American Family Physician, October 1996: v54, n5, p1519 (14)

Being comfortable and protected from the development of pressure sores while confined to a wheelchair is a challenge for all. Australian HiTemp UR Medical Sheepskins will add comfort and prevent pressure sores. wheelchair pressure points

Pressure points (‚óŹ) -see right, develop in many places while sitting in a wheelchair. Pressure reduction at these points will help to prevent pressure sores. Australian Medical sheepskin will not only reduce pressure at these points it will also reduce skin moisture and shear.

Pressure sores often develop as a result of skin friction and frequently will tear when the person moves. Australian Medical Sheepskins wick perspiration away from the skin,  keeping it dry and less likely to tear and develop into a sore.
