About our Medical Sheepskin

Medical sheepskin can work for people with various needs. It is great for someone who spends a lot of time in a chair, bed or wheelchair; it can reduce or prevent bed and pressure sores. Medical sheepskin pads have been used in hospitals and nursing homes for their healing and preventative qualities since the early 1960's.

When producing medical sheepskin, our team selects sheepskins with the highest pile density; this dense pile provides support. Medical sheepskin is sheared to an even length of approximately 1 inch (30mm), which distributes weight. Medical sheepskin mattress pads are specially tanned to ensure that the leather is pliable, and the entire pelt is easy to clean. This pliability allows it to conform to many positions. During the tanning process the sheepskin is also Sanitized®, which prevents fiber loss and makes the pelts very bacteria resistant.

Benefits of Medical Grade Sheepskin

Evenly distributes weight

Evenly distributing weight is important when reducing and preventing bedsores. 1 inch is the ideal pile height to evenly distribute weight. The fibers are soft and springy, so it conforms to a person’s body. This relieves pressure where it tends to build, improving blood flow.

Reduces excess moisture

Excess moisture is a reason why bedsores develop. Medical sheep skin is perfectly suited to deal with this. It can absorb up to 33% of its own weight in moisture without feeling wet.  The fibers also release moisture back into the air at a quicker rate than other materials. Medical sheepskin’s ability to cut down on moisture makes it useful for skin irritations including rashes, itchy skin and eczema.

Acts as a natural thermostat

Sheepskin regulates body temperature; keeping a person warm without overheating. Sheepskin has hollow fibres, making it very breathable. This also works to reduce moisture buildup caused by sweat. 

Improves the health of skin

Lanolin in wool has qualities that can improve the health of skin; it moisturizes the skin while protecting against the buildup of excess moisture. This enhances the feel of skin and everyday comfort. Sheepskin is also naturally hypoallergenic and antibacterial. Lanolin has self-cleaning properties when left to air out.

Comes in many shapes and sizes

Medical sheepskin can be used on a chair, bed, wheelchair, or almost anywhere you can think of. It can also be used to ease soreness caused by crutches. To make sure that our medical sheepskin can help in as many situations as possible we offer wheelchair covers, chair pads, bed pads and crutch covers. We also have medical sheepskin wraps that can be used on a person’s elbow, knee, forearm or ankle. Take a look at all of the ways Australian medical sheepskin can improve quality of life.

Easy to clean

All of our medical sheep skins are machine washable. Our ivory medical sheepskins can be washed at 100°F / 38°C, while our hi-temperature medical sheepskin can be washed at 176°F / 80°C. Washing the sheepskin at a higher temperature allows for a more thorough disinfection. The hi-temperature sheepskin is also resistant to staining such as blood and urine.

"I am absolutely delighted with my sheepskin forearm critch covers. After being on crutches for 3 years i was beginning to develop pressure sores on my forearms and on searching the internet for a solution i saw these. I received them in NZ within a few short weeks and the sores began healing almost imediately. They not only add a touch of 'class' to my crutches but feel wonderful against my skin. I cant recommend them highly enough plus the shopping experience was fantastic."

"Unable to find a medical sheepskin local and on the weekend I searched online. This site had the best price which left me wondering about the quality. I purchased this for my son who is recovering from a catastrophic motorcycle crash He was already beginning to get bed sores. This product has made him comfortable and the sores are gone. I'm grateful that a friend suggested to use a sheepskin to avert the bed sores."

"Our recent purchase of the double sheepskin has been a good choice for our mother. The product arrived quickly and was well packaged. The sheepskin is very high quality, beautiful, soft and clean, as well as very comfortable. It is a good length with enough to tuck over the top and bottom of her hospital bed, and has helped in creating a more comfortable sleeping surface, promoting healing of our mother's pressure sores which have been a problem due to her limited mobility. Very easy purchase and quick delivery."
