Introducing a new low friction fabric technology by Tamarack that dramatically reduces friction and related shear forces between the skin and prosthesis...
Indications for Use
The GlideWear® Prosthetic Liner Patch is indicated for amputees who experience irritation and areas of shear-related skin breakdown at various locations of the skin-liner interface, including the patella, popliteal, distal anterior tibia, and fibular head.
Simply position the GlideWear Prosthetic Liner Patch between the prosthetic liner and skin each day for immediate relief and continuous protection from skin trauma.
The GlideWear Prosthetic Liner Patch provides peace-of-mind for amputees who suffer from discomfort and recurring skin breakdown; often limiting or preventing individuals from participating in the activities of daily living they depend on and enjoy.
|Wherever discomfort and skin trauma occurs…||Use the GlideWear® patch daily at the skin-liner interface|
