Medical Sheepskins are not new. But, prior to 1998,there was a washability problem. The CSIRO solved this problem in 1998. Scientists, at the CSIRO in Australia, developed a new tanning process which resulted in machine washable Medical Sheepskins. The Australian Standard: AS4480-1 1998 was created. The Standard ensured that all authentic Australian Medical Sheepskins had certain premium characteristics and high level washability. Sheepskins selected and treated according to the AS4480-1 1998 standard have been shown, in clinical trials, to reduce the incidence of pressure sores and bedsores in people confined to a bed.
