Pillows to prevent bed sores
Special pillows can be used to prevent bed sores. This works by reducing pressure (the pillow) and reducing friction (the pillowcase)
The Parafricta® Pillowcase protects damaged and delicate skin from further damage due to friction. It is a practical product allowing a high temperature wash and is very durable. Yet it also has the feel and smoothness of silk to be cool and comfortable and help the person sleep.

Further information on pillows to prevent bed sores
Bed sores are caused by mechanical forces on the skin. These are pressure, friction and shear. Specialised pillows can be used to reduce the pressure. Special pillow cases can be used to reduce friction and shear. The Parafricta® Pillowcase uses a near zero-friction fabric to protect damaged skin for the affects of both friction and shear.
Other uses of the Parafricta® Pillowcase
The Parafricta® Pillowcase can be used for other types of wound to the head, face or ears and it helps keep wound dressings in place and prevent further damage to the skin through friction,
