The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) in partnership with industry experts here in Australia have developed new technologies and standards which enable the production of long life, high performance Australian Medical Sheepskins. The innovative Australian Medical Sheepskin Rug consists of between 4000 to 6000 wool fibres per square centimetre. CSIRO studies reveal a pressure reduction of more than 50% lying on these individually aligned fibres compared to a mattress. This allows user to have greatest comforts in any resting position. With the natural properties of Australian Merino wool, it regulates temperature on contacted body part, relieve pressure and absorbs moisture to make skin feels dry and cool.
