Shear Comfort Cushion-It - Features and Benefits

 

Cushion-It provides pressure redistribution, allows greater freedom of movement by avoiding uncomfortable friction and shear associated with other cushion covers, and also wicks perspiration for enhanced comfort and skin protection. The Cushion-It can be used for on the seat or back of a chair (or both) depending on where you need comfort and protection the most. Applications include office chairs, arm chairs, car seats or wheelchair seats and is particularly beneficial when seated for extended periods of time.


The Cushion-it can also be placed over existing pressure-care cushions to improve the feel and effectiveness of the cushion. The Cushion-it features adjustable Velcro straps that can be fastened underneath any seat or on a chair back to secure it in place. Shear Comfort products are easy to care for and are able to be washed at hot temperatures up to 80°C to effectively kill bacteria without causing shrinkage unlike other wool and sheepskin products. It is guaranteed against deterioration for up to 50 washes.

Shear Comfort XD1900:

Shear Comfort provides comfort, aids restful sleep and provides protection from skin breakdown. This is because they utilize the natural properties of wool; distributing pressure, dissipating heat and water vapour, reducing friction and shear forces making it a good skin interface. They are also easy to wash and maintain.


Shear Comfort products incorporate Australian Medical Sheepskins, and Shear Comfort XD1900, an innovative and advanced woven wool product that boasts a density of 1900gsm along with 30mm of pile compared to most other woven wool products that only range from 300-500gsm. XD1900 is fabric-backed medical sheep’s wool with a fibre density higher than even the very best natural sheepskins – which gives it superior pressure redistribution properties and improved comfort.
