Medical vs Non Medical

Yes, there is a difference. Although white sheepskin is sometimes used in medical applications, it is considered non medical because it contains synthetic fibers, cannot be laundered at high temperatures and lacks the durability over time to be effective. Whereas medical grade sheepskin is dyed green to indicate its medical authenticity. It consists of all natural hollow fibers, contains approximately 75,000 fibers per square inch and can be washed at high temperatures allowing it to be used repeatedly to treat pressure injuries and heal wounds.

During my 30 years in general practice, I have witnessed the increasing technical sophistication of hospital care, but I still despair when I see my patients develop stage 4 pressure ulcers on their heels.
