Seat

Discomfort whilst seated can be amplified by many factors, such as; uneven or high pressure, shear and friction forces, poor breathability, and poor ergonomics.

Once a person’s posture and seating position is corrected, some users find that they still have pain in the seated area when sitting for extended periods, particularly in the area underneath the hip-bones.

High pressure on the skin can lead to deterioration, which in turn can lead to pressure ulcers. Shear Comfort can help by distributing the pressure across the seated area, relieving the skin underneath peak pressure points.   

The natural properties of wool mean that it wicks (draws) moisture away from the skin into the air trapped between the fibres, keeping the skin dry and comfortable and creating a healthy environment for healing and skin maintenance. This effect also means that skin temperature is better regulated, the skin remains insulated from the cold and the moisture wicking aids the body’s cooling processes.

Shear Comfort sheep's wool is selected and manufactured to give the wool an extra high density (1900gsm) which increases its pressure distribution properties. Silky smooth Merino-Cross fibres also reduce the shear and friction that can cause damage to the skin when transferring from seated surfaces.
