Superior Overlay- Pressure Smart XD1900:
Easy care product: Suitable for Nursing homes and domestic use.
This new Pressure Smart XD Superior Overlay offers a new level of wool technology for the Prevention and Treatment of Pressure Sores, Bedsores and Decubitus Ulcers. This new wool technolgy has produced this machine washable fleece with 1900 g of wool /square meter of product. This is higher and nearly double the wool pile density of most sheepskins.
The Pressure Smart XD Overlay is 30" X 60" and is most effective when the user lies directly on the wool surface. This comforting Merino wool surface, 30mm high, decreases pressure points, absorbs moisture and reduces shear..the 3 major causes of pressure sores.
This significantly cheaper alternative to the HiTemp UR Medical Sheepskin Superior Overlay has some distinct adavantages.
- The Pressure Smart XD1900 Superior Overlay is produced from wool that is shorn from the sheep and is thus part of a sustainable wool industry. Merino sheep need to be shorn at least once a year because their wool does not stop growing. If the coat is allowed to grow too long, it can cause heat stress, mobility issues, and blindness.
- It is easier to care for, being machine washable AND machine dry. This reduces the recycling time when laundering is necessary.
- Because the pile is so dense ( at least 1900 grams/square metre of surface ), spillage does not readily pass through the pile. So, spillage can be easily cleaned up wiith a damp cloth. It is recommended that you wash this product when it becomes smelly. Shear Comfort warrants this product for 50 washes in Woolskin, when the recommended washing procedures are used.

I bought this for my BIL who is hospitalized with a sudden autoimmune-type illness that has caused paralysis. I ordered it on a Thursday and it arrived in BC on a Tuesday. They even called me back the same day I emailed with a question. I'm very impressed.
I have been using the medical sheepskins for years on my daughters bed and chair. She has never had any skin conditions. She is now 32 years old.
