The Tamarack Story

At Tamarack Habilitation Technologies, we’re dedicated to finding innovative ways to improve people’s lives. Tamarack was founded in 1990 in St. Paul, Minnesota.

Our active brand, ENGO, helps people continue to do what they love – and get rid of blisters for good. ENGO Blister Prevention Patches help runners, women who wear heels, hikers, athletes, and anyone who suffers from blisters.

Our GlideWear® products help amputees, wheelchair users, and people with limited mobility prevent painful wounds and bedsores.

Our Tamarack brand products are world renowned in the orthotic and prosthetic (O&P) industry, especially the Tamarack Flexure Joint® for custom orthopedic bracing and ShearBan® low friction patches for foot blister and neuropathic ulcer prevention.

Tamarack is a small, privately held business, wholly owned by the Marty and Peg Carlson family. We’re based in Minnesota and our products are proudly made in the USA. Meet the Tamarack team.
