Tamarack

Tamarack Habilitation Technologies is world renowned in the orthotic and prosthetic (O&P) marketplace for ShearBan® low-friction interfaces, fabrication tools and a wide range of journal publications related to orthotic design.

ShearBan® works by reducing friction and related shear forces at areas of concern, complementing traditional pressure offloading techniques. Low friction PTFE film allows human skin to glide smoothly over at-risk areas of footwear and medical devices. 

The GlideWear® Socks provide targetted shear reduction to 
heels and ankles that can occur due to badly fitting footwear and The GlideWear Shear Protection Underwear protects from friction that can occur between sensitive skin and the seating surface.

In addition we stock the GlideWear® Cushion Cover which slips on over most wheelchair cushions and is a solution for wheelchair users who are at risk of tissue breakdown due to friction and shear.
