BEDSORES - A SENSITIVE ISSUE
Bedsores refer to the skin problem that develops due to long-term sitting or lying in a particular position. Usually bedsores develop in the tail bone area first. This is often followed by pressure sores on the heels. Other sensitive areas like the hip, knees and ears can also be affected. Look for the tell-tale redness of an impending pressure sore. In these parts, blood supply can be reduced by long-time sitting or lying in one place. Low blood flow reduces nutrient and oxygen supply to the cells and they die. This is the beginning of a bedsore/pressure sore. In worse case scenarios, the sores are left untreated and may develop into a life threatening Stage 4 ulcer or decubitus ulcer. Extreme pain and sometimes death results from an infected pressure sore or ulcer.
People who are confined to a bed and have to use a wheelchair are susceptible to the development of pressure sores. Medical Sheepskin will assist these people and prevent debilitating pressure sores. The dense Merino wool pile of Medical sheepskin makes it easy to avoid pressure problems and to add comfort.
