Relief from shear-induced skin trauma caused by wheelchair cushions, back supports and headrests, prosthetic socket liners, orthopedic knee braces, and more!
GlideWear by Tamarack Habilitation Technologies is a breakthrough in the treatment and prevention of skin trauma. GlideWear technology reduces shear stresses in at-risk areas of human tissue to promote wound healing and prevent tissue damage altogether.
Initially introduced as a shear management technology for wheelchair cushion covers, GlideWear is now under development as a prosthetic liner interface for transtibial amputees and for users of knee braces; all who suffer from irritation and tissue damage due to shearing between layers of the skin.
