These protectors have been developed especially for people at risk of bedsores. It is particularly at the heels with their convex shape and the pressure that can then build up on them that the risk is relatively high. Heel protectors made of genuine lambskin can provide real relief in such situations.

With the protectors worn right next to the skin you will feel the gentle stimulation of the fine wool fibres and the pleasant, soothing warmth of the lambskin with a shorn depth of pile of approx. 30mm. The two Velcro fasteners make it ever so easy to put on the elbow
protectors, knee warmers and heel protectors and to adjust them for a perfect fit.
Warmth is one of our basic needs. Lambskins provide us with this warmth through the perfectly natural process of creating a cushion of air in the thick wool and by countless wool fibres gently stimulating us. Thermotherapy is one of the oldest medical techniques used in the wide variety of medical systems and is found not only in conventional western medicine but also in naturopathy and Chinese medicine. There are a host of different ways in which medical professionals use the beneficial effects of warmth. These include
to relax muscles, improve blood circulation, reduce the viscosity of synovial fluid, improve the elasticity of collagenous connective tissue and to relieve pain.
