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.

If unsure of size, please follow these steps to determine your size:

  • Draw a straight line, longer than your foot, on a piece of paper.
  • Place the paper on a flat surface. Stand on the line with your heel and longest toe centred on the line.
  • Place a mark on the line at the tip of the longest toe and at the back of the heel.
  • Repeat steps 1 - 3 for the other foot.
  • Measure the distance between the marks. Taking the larger of the two measurements, use the conversion chart to find your correct size.

Foot Notes:

  • Centimetre measurements are actual foot length not shoe sole length
  • Sizing Charts are indicative of foot length but doesn't  allow for various foot and leg widths, high insteps and any feet abnormalities.
  • No returns of incorrect size will be accepted once footwear has been worn and stretched.
  • Be sure NOT to choose a larger size for fear of the ugg being too small - your footwear should be firm fitting (but not too tight) when you receive them. Sheepskin will stretch and the wool pile will flatten and shape around your foot, giving a cosy, snugg fit. If they are too loose, as they wear in, they may become too roomy.

 

NB. Mens shoe sizes in Australia can use different sizing conventions. Dress/business shoes are usually sized in UK sizing whereas Mens joggers are sized in US sizing. If unsure of your sizing check the size marked on your joggers.

NB. Larger Youth sizing overlaps with Adult sizing so our footwear is priced according to the size of the footwear, NOT priced for child or adult.
