Medicinal sheepskin extra soft long hair XL
Beside of our shorthair medicinal sheepskin, have we got the medicinal long hair sheepskins. The hair of the medicinal long-haired sheepskin is approx. 5 cm long, and because these skins are tanned in the same ecological way as the short-haired medicinal sheepskins, the hair feels silky soft.
If you are forced to sit or lie down a lot, our medicinal sheep fleeces will help you to prevent bedsores. The Texel medicinal sheepskin rugs are suitable for people who need decubitus prevention or who want more comfort in bed or (wheel)chair.
Bedsores (decubitus) are common in Dutch nursing homes. When patients are bedridden, wounds may develop on the areas with high pressure. Decubitus wounds are very painful and in many cases even preventable.
Since 1998, the medicinal sheepskin has been used in Australian hospitals. A recent study has shown that 91% of patients who lay on a medicinal sheepskin did not develop decubitus.
Our medicinal sheepskins come from the Texel sheep breed.
Due to the Texel climate, the Texel has a firm, thick, frizzy wool with a high lanolin content. Lanolin is a wool fat that has a nurturing effect on the skin.
The medicinal sheepskins have a pleasant firmness that allows them to distribute the pressure of the body, and with the beautiful long soft hairs they also look very nice in your interior.
The advantages of a medicinal sheepskin
Our Texel medicinal sheepskin is pressure regulating, moisture and temperature regulating, irritation free, antibacterial and if necessary washable on a wool wash at 30 degrees.
Because the wool regulates heat, it can adapt to the temperature of the body. This is why the medicinal sheepskin feels wonderfully warm in the winter and cool in the summer.
