Bed Sores, also known as Pressure Sores and Skin Ulcers, occur when there is pressure and moisture against the skin, and can develop in as little as a shocking 20 minutes.
These sores are painful and can take up to six moths to heal. Sadly, in some cases they can even lead to fatal complications.
Pressure sores will also develop when the body is prevented from receiving proper blood flow, like those suffering with a chronic condition, such as diabetes or vascular disease.
Elderly with thinning skin are prone to bed sores, as well as patients with limited mobility and those confined to wheelchairs.
The most common places for pressure ulcers to form are over bones close to the skin; elbows, heels, hips, ankles, shoulders, back, and back of the head.
So many people suffer needlessly, 95% of bed sores are preventable! There is a simple solution not only for preventing pressure and bed sores from developing but will also aid in healing those that are suffering right now. That solution is authentic sheepskin medical products.
Sheepskin should really be called a miracle fibre! No other man-made or other natural fibre comes remotely close in comparison.
Sheepskin fibres wick away moisture so skin is always kept dry. Sheepskin can absorb up to 30-40% of its own weight in moisture. The porous structures of the fibres not only retain that moisture but create air pockets to keep the body temperature perfectly regulated, never too warm or cold.
Sheepskins spring like fibres are strong, always supporting and providing cushioning that evenly distributes and relieves pressure, all the while comfort and softness never being compromised. It has been said that sheepskin fibres are actually stronger than steel, so the fibres won't breakdown, meaning this is a product that will be durable and last for a long time.
Sheepskin has so many health benefits; hypoallergenic and dust mite resistant, which is important for those that may suffer from asthma or allergies. Sheepskin is durable and naturally safe! Sheepskin does not have to be treated with harsh chemicals to be fire resistant because wool cannot support a flame it doesn't melt so will not stick to skin or cause serious burns.
Sheepskin is easy to care for, machine washable and versatile. Use sheepskin in beds, chairs and anywhere extra comfort is needed.
Make sure you are purchasing authentic sheepskin; imitations will not have these capabilities or qualities and could actually cause further complications.
