Medical Foot Care

 

Feet of people confined to bed are very susceptible to the development of Pressure Sores, Bed Sores or decubitus ulcers. Pressure sores occur too frequently when one considers that they can usually be avoided.

Footcare Lambswool ( Footwool) should be used to reduce pressure associated with corns, blisters and bunions. Footcare Lambswool is sold in a 6-pak. Each pack contains a 15" rope of very fine Merino wool. To order click:  Footwool
