Anti Bedsore (Decubitus) Heel Protector brand Skeepe - medicinally tanned from Genuine Texel sheepskin
Cold, overuse and dehydration of the heel can cause cracks.
The heel warmer of the Skéépe brand is made of moisture regulating and warming Texel sheep's wool, with naturally present lanolin. The heel warmer helps to soothe and reduce the symptoms of overload, dehydration and cold. The wool also provides relief from rheumatic complaints and offers protection as well as warmth to painful joints.
Heel warmers are also a common remedy for bedsores (decubitus). Pressure sores are the result of poor circulation in the skin. The painful condition often occurs in people who have to lie or sit for long periods. The serious wounds usually heal poorly. In addition to factors such as weight, medication, resistance and nutrition, the humidity and temperature of the skin play a major role in the development of the spots.
The heel warmer is easy to put on and customize thanks to the adjustable double Velcro strap and can be used for the heel.
The sheepskins come from the world famous and unique Texel sheep breed, The Texel.
These sheep are popular for their excellent wool. The wool is nourished by the salty sea air, wind and sun. These conditions create the best wool because they make the fleece of the Texel sheep voluminous and frizzy. This makes it extra soft, resilient and optimally insulating. Because of this ideal combination of insulation and ventilation, the sheepskin adapts itself to your body temperature, as it were; wonderfully warm in winter and nice and cool in summer. A sheepskin is extremely comfortable and wonderfully soft. Because the density of the fleece is high, your body heat is retained when you stand or lie on it. A Texel sheepskin is a wonderfully soft support that provides relief from (bedsore) pain. Sheepskins also have a positive influence on our health.
What is nice to know is that the sheep are not slaughtered for their fleece but for the meat. Because Sképe believes in sustainable handling of such a waste product, we have these special fleeces tanned and in this way we give the fleece of the Texel sheep a second life! The sheep and lambs roam freely in the Texel countryside, enjoying the space of the pastures. Due to the special island climate on Texel, the sheepskin has a unique voluminous structure and is of extra good quality.
