The lamb’s wool linings from PMT are of medical quality and suitable for the Halo vests. These liners offer users many advantages during their immobilization period.
What happens when patients are immobilized?
While patients are immobilized, bedsores can occur as a result of tissue breakdown due to compression and blood circulation reduction. These pressure wounds can occur within four hours of immobilization, regardless of the patient’s age.
Useful to know
The use of medical-grade sheepskin reduces the risk of pressure ulcers (through-the-head or pressure wounds) as it absorbs 36% more moisture than the leading synthetic materials.Request information
PmT lambswool is of high quality
The quality of lamb’s wool can absorb up to 25 grams of perspiration over a period of four hours. Synthetic materials, on the other hand, can absorb only 0.5 grams during the same period.
A number of advantages of the lambswool of the halo vests
So, because the lamb’s wool absorbs more moisture, lamb’s wool relieves the discomfort of perspiration all over the body, especially at pressure points. A recent study shows that the use of lamb’s wool significantly reduces the number of pressure wounds. In 397 elderly orthopaedic patients, the number of pressure wounds decreased by 68% compared to the use of standard materials.
What risks does the lamb’s wool all reduce?
The lining of lamb’s wool reduces the risk of ruptured blood vessels, skin cracks and friction by being thicker and softer. The lining of lamb’s wool is also very flexible because the bottom is polished up to ten times to give the skin a clean and soft finish.
Lamb’s wool is also easy to care for
In addition to the benefits for the skin, the lamb’s wool of PMT is also very easy to care for. It can be washed by hand with a mild soap and dried to the air. The cleaning does not affect the size or appearance of the sheepskin.
“The use of medical-grade sheepskin reduces the risk of pressure wounds because it absorbs 36% more moisture than the commonly used synthetic materials.”
