The Machine Washable Sheepskin Bed Pad is designed for use by individuals who are at risk for pressure sores/ulcers. This dense pile pad can be used in a bed or chair where the 30-millimeter pile aids in reducing pressure on pressure points. Sleep directly on the wool for maximum benefit. Elastic straps hold the pad in place, but can be cut off if they are not needed. DIMENSIONS: The pad is 24 X 36 inches.
