Tamarack™ Asks People with Wheelchairs to Test New Seat Cushion Technology Called GlideWear™

Tamarack™ seeks up to 50 people who use wheelchairs to try out a new technology designed to make sitting more comfortable and to reduce stress on the skin. The technology is called GlideWear™. GlideWear™ uses a new fabric based friction management system (patent pending). The first application of this technology is a wheelchair seat cushion cover. The GlideWear™ cover can be used with any standard cushion typically used for skin protection and simply installs over the original cushion cover. GlideWear™ provides a shear absorbing, low-friction interface beneath the pelvis and hips – where the skin is most vulnerable to break down, decubitus ulcers (pressure sores), or hotspots. For the market test, Tamarack will provide one GlideWear™ seat cover at no charge. We are restricting the market test to Minnesota to enable us to meet with users if necessary. To find out details on the market test, contact Tamarack by calling: 763-795-0057 or e-mail: info@tamarackhti.com. All information will be kept in strict confidence.
