Wool Bedding for Incontinent Clients:
Pressure sores are often a problem associated with incontinence.Bedsores and decubitus ulcers. Pressure sores often develop first in the tail-bone area. When this happens and the person is also incontinent, a new set of problems are presented. We recommend the use of diapers and pressure reduction with Hospital Nursing Fleeces, HiTemp UR Australian Medical Sheepskin or Pressure Smart XD products. However, some customers do not use diapers and use our products 24/7..with lots of washing.

- Pure New Wool- Hospital Nursing Fleece: 30" x 60" - (F103C)
Pressure reduction and comfort in one product. This extra deep ( 1.5"), luxurious pure new Merino Wool-Pile pad feels like a high quality sheepskin. It is Machine Washable and can be dried in the dryer, using the Warm setting. The Nursing Fleece is a viable alternative to the Australian Medical Sheepskin. It is larger and dries faster than a sheepskin.
The F103C Nursing Fleece ( 100% wool) is large enough to give pressure reduction from the shoulders to the heels of most people. Studies ( see Testimonials ) have shown that patients on a Nursing Fleece could be comfortably left un-turned for more than double the usual 2 hour period. Even after four hours there were no obvious pressure points or redness. In all cases, the patient reported relief and increased comfort while using the Nursing Fleece. Hospital Nursing Fleeces are Hypoallergenic and are made from anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, SuperWash wool. The backing is also an allergy barrier, breathable, soft and has 2-way stretch.
