More doctors are recommending genuine sheepskin for patients, babies, and active men and women. Medical sheepskins help regulate body temperature, providing cool comfort in the summer and warmth in the winter. When used to sit or lie on, natural sheepskins distribute pressure evenly under the body allowing air circulation. It actually helps to relax and regenerate the body.

Helps Relieve Bedsores

The properties of sheepskins as pads in a medical environment are extremely important. In-patient comfort is often the determining factor to good and fast recovery. In addition, patients confined to a bed may suffer from a variety of ailments caused solely by the confinement itself such as:

* Bedsores (decubitus)
* Tender Pressure Points
* Poor Air Circulation around the Body
* Excessive Perspiration
* Hip Bone Pressure
* Hemiperisis
* Partial Paraplegia and Tetraplegia
* Backache
* Insomnia

All of these symptoms may be alleviated to some degree by using medical sheepskin as a nursing aid in wheelchairs, on beds, or on a favorite chair. They can also be used under wrists to help alleviate carpal tunnel syndrome.

Activates Circulation for Babies

Naturally soft sheepskins keep babies warm in the winter and cool in the summer. Studies by doctors at the University of Cambridge have confirmed that babies actually grow better and sleep more soundly on genuine sheepskins. Sheepskins can be used during travel, in playpens, in the stroller, on the changing table, in the child’s car seat, and in the crib.

Promotes a Healthy and Deeper Sleep

Medical sheepskins are also an excellent investment in good sleep, especially for active men and women who rely on a good sleep for proper recovery and relaxation. Sheepskin can be slept on directly or placed where needed under elbows, hips, or other joints. Anyone who has used a medical sheepskin can testify to the ability of pure natural sheepskin to act as a sleep inducer.

Easy to Care for Sheepskins are easy to care for - a simple shaking and hanging is usually sufficient as wool resists soiling and naturally cleans itself in fresh air. Medical sheepskins are also 100% machine washable and available in a variety of sizes.
