Pressure Relief Bed Fleece

When you're susceptible to pressure sores and ulcers, it's integral that you keep your skin dry and allow it to breathe. The Pressure Relief Bed Fleece is made from 100% pure new wool, which has the unique ability of being able to absorb perspiration and keep the skin dry. Unlike polyester, real wool is exothermic and can absorb up to 33% of its own weight in moisture without feeling damp so your skin can breathe more effectively.

Key Features and Benefits

  • Made from 100% pure new wool with a woven polyester backing
  • Absorbs perspiration to keep skin dry and enables skin to breathe
  • One inch deep pile distributes pressure evenly
  • Covers are pre-treated and can therefore be autoclaved or washed at up to 40°C
  • Can be washed up to 50 times and still provide softness and comfort
  • Makes an excellent 'interface' on beds and chairs

Comfortable Design

Wool will not feel cold even when damp, allowing you to remain warm and comfortable during use. As real wool has a remarkable natural resilience and the real lamb's wool found in the cover distributes pressure more evenly, the fleece offers immediate and comfortable relief from pressure. The bed fleece also has a soft feel that prevents friction burns from occurring.

Where Should I Place the Fleece?

For the best results when using the Pressure Relief Fleece, we recommend using the fleece below your normal bed sheets. This reduces the frequency of washing necessary and can also improve the user comfort, without impinging on the pressure relief provided.

Will the Pressure Relief Fleece Keep Me Cool?

The Pressure Relief Bed Fleece works to keep you cool, preventing overheating by absorbing persperation in order to keep you sleeping peacefully. However, if you need a topper specifically targeted towards symptoms of menopause, try the Layer of Air Cooling Mattress Topper. By creating a cooling layer between you and your mattress, the Topper specifically targets:

  • Aggressive hot flushes
  • Night sweats
  • Hyperthyroidism

Versatile Pressure Relief Fleece

The Pressure Relief Fleece is ideal for the relief and prevention of pressure sores and pressure ulcers. Versatile in design, the fleece can be used to cover the entire sleeping area or specific parts of the sleeping area where the body is most prone to pressure sores. This makes it suitable for use on your bed, chair, sofa, a wheelchair, and any other sitting or lying area.

Excellent value, has certainly helped with the injury to my glute. The density has not diminished after using it in bed and chair after one week

I am unable to rollover due to multiple sclerosis.

Using a fleece is the most wonderfully simple solution to prevent pressure sores. From the moment I start lying on one is the moment I can rest comfortably.

A little Firm
Thursday, 2 April 2020  | 

Bought this for my 95 year old mother who has a pressure wound on her lower back and has difficulty sleeping in comfort. Tried it the first night and she said it helped but seemed very firm on the underside so I washed it the following day. Seemed to come up very fluffy and was said to be more comfortable. However I think the product after a few washes will soften considerably and by then hopefully will do the trick.. I think it is a good buy so fingers crossed.
