Despite advances in modern medicine, pressure ulcers continue to challenge health professionals. Unfortunately this unglamorous condition remains a frequent occurrence in many Australian health institutions and costs the country over $350 million per year!

There are several uncomplicated clinical practices that can be followed to prevent pressure ulceration, including the use of pressure relieving aids. According to Professor Donald G MacLellan, Chairman of the Wound Foundation of Australia Monash University, one of the most remarkable devices available for pressure ulcer prevention is the Australian Medical Sheepskin.

In addition to its remarkable pressure relieving clinical properties, the Australian Medical Sheepskin is also a cost effective and durable option for the prevention of pressure ulcers. In fact, recent award winning research conducted by Doctor Ken Montgomery shows that the use of Australian Medical Sheepskins can reduce the incidence of pressure ulcers by up to 58 percent!

Our rugs feature dense and springy wool fibres to support and cushion the body and allow air to flow freely, keeping the patient cool in summer and warm in winter. Additionally, our specially treated high grade medical sheepskin rugs can absorb up to 30 percent of their weight in water without feeling damp! This makes them excellent for patients who are required to spend long periods sitting or lying down.

Other products include Aussie foot comforters, heel pads, and elbow pads. In addition to providing relief from soreness to patients who have been confined to bed for long periods, these products can assist in the relief of discomfort associated with extreme local swelling and frozen ankles, arthritic pain, rheumatic pain, and muscular complaints. The luxury wool pile allows for plenty of airflow to the affected area, and is great for chilly nights and warm periods alike.

Of course anyone can enjoy Aussie Foot Comforters as great bed-socks or lounging around slippers.
