Washable Sheepskin Crutches Covers: M109
Have to use crutches? We all know that using crutches is no fun. You can reduce the agony with our Medical Sheepskin Crutches Covers. Made from champagne coloured Medical Sheepskin with a 30mm deep dense pile, the crutches cover set includes a cover for each crutch arm and hand rest. The hand rests are held in place by Velcro strips. Sheepskin is very effective for this use, since it absorbs moisture readily without feeling wet. Of course, all 4 parts of this set are machine washable.
Medical Sheepskin Crutches Covers reduce armpit and hand pressure..the major problems associated with using crutches.
Wash in Woolskin to condition the leather and wool together with disinfecting the product. Machine wash and air dry.
This is one of many products offered by Down-Under Wool for the Prevention of Pressure Sores, Bedsores & Decubitus Ulcers. To see these products click"Product List

I ordered crutch covers because I was having an allergic reaction to the hand grips and shoulder pads. The sheepskin is nice but I was very disappointed with the velcro work:
- the velcro on the hand grip covers was sewn onto the wrong sides, causing the covers to be too long in one direction and too short in the other, so they don't wrap completely around the hand grips, and I still have skin contact with the grips to which I am reacting;
- there was no velcro on the shoulder pad covers so they fell off each time I used them until my mother-in-law sewed some velcro onto them.
Down-Under Wool Response: Thankyou for your feedback. Since receiving your Review, we now add a velcro strap to the underarm pad to stop it from falling off.
We have been selling these for over 20 years and this is the first negative feedback for this product. Because there is such a large variation in crutches design, we have tried to develop a universal system.
Thankyou again for your input.
