Birch Hill Trading Co. Products
Medical Sheepskins & Medical Sheepskin products help to prevent the formation of bed sores otherwise known as Pressure Ulcers (PU's) by reducting pressure on the skin, reducing friction and preventing the build up of moisture. (Please refer to our Info page for more information on Pressure Ulcers)
Wool Fibres are naturally soft, springy and resilient, with the added bonus of resisting combustion. The springiness of the wool pile distributes pressure evenly over the body allowing air circulation and the non-build up of moisture, resulting in coolness in summer and warmth in winter.
Wool is capable of holding up to 33% of its own weight in moisture without feeling wet to touch, perspiration is therefore readily absorbed and then dissipated by evapouration. Sheepskin naturally repels dirt and bounces back after washing.
