How the GlideWear Pillowcase Works

The GlideWear Skin Protection Pillowcase used patented technology to protect the scalp, ears, cheeks, and face from harmful friction and shear. GlideWear is a two-layer fabric that absorbs harmful friction and shear between its two layers, protecting the skin from friction and rubbing. The GlideWear Skin Protection Pillowcase absorbs friction where the head comes into contact with the pillow.

GlideWear & Kids with Epidermolysis Bullosa

The GlideWear team’s work with kids with EB started with one 4-year-old girl in Minnesota. We designed custom clothes for her to protect her armpits, knees, elbows, and back from harmful friction that causes blistering. Now we are working with children with EB across the country to design effective skin protection solutions.

The GlideWear Pillowcase is currently being used by all children with epidermolysis bullosa in a nationally recognized, specialty EB center at a major hospital.

“GlideWear is a gamechanger for children with EB!” — Mother of a daughter with EB

The GlideWear Pillowcase is comfortable and soothing to touch. Your child will be able to move her head on the pillow without having to worry as much about her skin being pulled or rubbed. The pillowcase is especially good for kids who have friction-induced blistering on their cheeks, ears, scalp, and face.

GlideWear for People with Limited Mobility

If you have limited mobility and spend much of the day and night in bed, your pillow might be the problem. When your head moves on a standard pillowcase, the fabric resists the movement and causes friction. That friction can lead to scalp damage and hair loss. People in long-term care and people with spinal cord injury are at a particular high risk for injury, including sores on their ears.
