What is GlideWear?

GlideWear is a brand of Tamarack Habilitation Technologies, where we’re dedicated to finding innovative ways to improve people’s lives. GlideWear products help amputees, wheelchair users, and people with limited mobility prevent painful wounds and bedsores.

Tamarack was founded in 1990 in St. Paul, Minnesota and all of our products are made in the USA.

Who Can Use GlideWear?

GlideWear products are designed for amputees, wheelchair users, bed-bound seniors, and people with neuropathy and foot pain. They’re great for anyone who gets friction, pressure, and shear-related injuries, including bed sores, pressure ulcers, calluses, wounds, sores, and blisters.

Using a patented technology, GlideWear reduces friction and prevents the painful rubbing that causes ulcers, sores, and skin breakdown.
