The Australian AS4480.1 Medical Sheepskin rug consists of between 4000 to 6000 wool fibres per square centimetre. The unique nature of the dense fibres in our Australian Medical Sheepskins provides outstanding support. This mass of individually aligned fibres collectively reduces pressure by distributing the user’s load. In fact, CSIRO studies reveal a pressure reduction of more than 50% when lying on an AS4480.1 Australian Medical Sheepskin compared to a mattress. No other sheepskin or sheepskin products give this level of support and pressure reduction.
