Shear Comfort Sheepskin Wheelchair Protectors

Wheelchair users can benefit from the range of Shear Comfort sheepskin wheelchair accessories to protect seat, calves, and arms.



Shear Comfort Sheepskin Wheelchair Protectors

Shear Comfort Sheepskin Wheelchair Protectors are born from the knowledge that a wheelchair can sometimes be an unforgiving seat, built to be sturdy rather than comfortable. Medical wheelchair cushions can also be unpleasant to sit on, using non-porous fabrics that restrict airflow to the skin and trigger sweating. By covering your cushion with a Cushion-it you can improve the microclimate next to your skin without losing any of the pressure-care qualities of the cushion, and enhance your comfort.

Who’s it for?

For everyday wheelchair users and occasional wheelchair users, Shear Comfort overlays can be used to soften sling seats and backs and can be placed over existing wheelchair pressure-care cushions and solid backs to absorb vibrations and distribute pressure. Shear Comfort also wicks away moisture to keep the skin dry, so long rides become more comfortable.

Targeted protectors for wheelchairs can boost your comfort by redistributing pressure and absorbing vibrations. Sheepskin seat covers are already very popular with motorcyclists, who find that sheepskin is perfect for absorbing vibrations from the engine and enhancing the comfort of the seat on long rides. Sheepskin moulds to the body and gently holds it in position more than other cushion covers and sling materials, helping you maintain a correct posture. Calf Plate Protectors and Arm Support Protectors can also prevent feet and arms from slipping out of place.

rt Sheepskin Wheelchair Protectors

Our targeted protectors for seats, backs, arm supports, calf plates have been designed to slip over any type of wheelchair with the help of adjustable Velcro and elastic fastenings, and release quickly so they can be transferred between chairs if needed. Transform your wheelchair into a vehicle of comfort using Shear Comfort targeted protectors to soften the ride.

Arm Supports and Cushion-It Seat Supports are fabric-backed with medical sheep’s wool called XD1900, unique to Shear Comfort with a fibre density higher than even the very best natural sheepskins – which gives it superior pressure redistribution properties. This is achieved by weaving natural wool to a fabric backing, and is not to be confused with artificial sheepskins created from synthetic ‘wool.’  Natural wool is used, and treated to ensure it can be repeatedly washed up to 80°C.
