Transfer Board Strips with ShearBan® Technology
GlideFree™ Strips create a low-friction surface on any transfer board, making sliding transfers easier and reducing the risk of skin trauma.
ShearBan® was introduced by Tamarack Habilitation Technologies in 1998 to provide relief from hot spots, blisters and other forms of skin trauma for users of orthotic & prosthetic devices and therapeutic footwear. The same technology is incorporated into GlideFree™ Strips to help wheelchair users and caregivers perform sliding transfers.
Each GlideFree™ kit contains a pack of five 1" wide x 34" long blue transparent tape strips, and work with wood or plastic transfer boards.
Transfer board not included.
GlideFree™ kits are available for $20 per pack from our website. Click to buy now.

- Ensure your transfer board is clean, using an alcohol prep pad or soap & water, before applying Glidefree™ Strips.
- Begin applying Glidefree™ strips, working from the outside edges of the board in toward the middle.
- If your transfer board has hand holes, apply strips over the top, then slice and wrap around the back side of the board.
- Once all strips have been installed, your transfer board is ready to use.
