Discomfort

Persons with low body fat, delicate skin or restricted mobility are likely to be affected by high pressure whilst in bed or when seated, causing feelings of discomfort. Anybody can be affected by this, particularly if they are recuperating from illness or injury and are less mobile.

Shear Comfort can help with discomfort that is caused by high pressure between the skin and a mattress or seat, whether it is just causing discomfort or more serious problems such as pressure ulcers. This is achieved by the superior pressure-redistribution properties of medical sheepskin, which has been proven to reduce peak pressure points by 41% (MHRA, 2004) under the pelvis, providing welcome relief.

Unlike air or foam-based cushions and mattress toppers, Shear Comfort is comfortable against the skin and maintains airflow, preventing the sweating reaction that can be triggered by synthetic materials. Sheepskin is also a silent alternative to noisy air-filled pressure care devices. 

Shear Comfort sheepskin is also an attractive alternative for people who want an aesthetically pleasing pressure-care solution that will not look out of place in the bedroom or living room. Relieve your discomfort the natural way with a Shear Comfort overlay.

For discomfort in the feet or lower legs, please visit our sore feet or legs section.
