A sheepskin laid over the top of your mattress may prevent pressure sores. Two randomised controlled trials showed that hospital patients who had a sheepskin on their bed were less likely to get a pressure sore than patients who didn't have one. In one study, 1 in 10 people who used a sheepskin got a pressure sore. Among those who didn't use a sheepskin, 3 in 10 people got a pressure sore.
