Incontinence and Pressure Sores:
Quite often, those that are prone to the development of pressure sores are also incontinent. This usually increases the chance of developing a pressure sore in the tail bone area.
It is not suggested that you stop using diapers on incontinent individuals. However, you can reduce the chance of developing pressure sores by reducing pressure in the tail bone area. This can be done with the continuous use of the Shear Comfort Overlay or Superior Overlay. Both the Overlay and the Superior Overlay are HiTemp UR medical Sheepskin products.

Both of these products have HiTemp washability for thermal disinfection. If washed in Shear Comfort Sheepskin Shampoo & Woolwash, they will also retain a residual antibacterial, present in the wash, to reduce the chance of wound infection.
Shear Comfort Overlays and Superior Overlays are also Urine Resistant. This means that if spillage occurs, the sheepskin will not be damaged. Spillage can easily be cleaned up with an absorbant cloth. All other sheepskins are not Urine Resistant and will be permanently damaged by urine.
Care for these products with Shear Comfort Sheepskin Shampoo & Conditioner to maintain, and even enhance, the wool and leather properties.
