ABOUT BED SORES (PRESSURE SORES OR DECUBITUS ULCER)
Bed sores pose a threat to anyone facing long periods of bed rest or bed
confinement, or anyone you is immobilized or handicapped. Bed sores develop
as a result of constant pressure on certain parts of the body, most commonly the
bony areas such as shoulder blades, hips, heels and elbows . Other factors that
contribute to bedsores include excessive moisture from sweating and friction
from rubbing against the lower sheet.
Early sign of a bed sore is a red rash that looks much like a sunburn. If left
untreated, full blown bed sores develop, resulting in open wounds with drainage,
infections and even death. Bed sores can be successfully treated by providing air
flow under the body and by removing moisture. As always, prevention is the best
cure. But even fully developed bed sores can be cured by the use of natural
medical sheepskin, wool mattress pad, sheepskin heel wraps, etc.
The value of medical sheepskin and wool mattress pad for medical use has been
known for decades, but not widely used. However, Nursing Homes, Hospices, and
Home Care services that use sheepskin wool and wool bedding find great success
in preventing and curing bed sores. Quality, 100% natural wool sheepskin and wool
mattress pad provides soft, dense fibers that wick away moisture and allow air to
circulate under all pressure points of the body.
Extensive research has been done by supplying patents in Nursing Homes,
Hospice groups and individuals under home care with medical sheepskin bed
pads, sheepskin heel wraps and elbow wraps, wool mattress pads, and recording
the results. When these results were compared to patients not using them, the
value of sheep wool becomes obvious. Of the patients using sheepskin wool
products no new bed sores were seen and those with bed sores were dramatically
