Amputees – Say goodbye to messy creams and skin-drying powders!
Now available from Tamarack Habilitation Technologies (Minneapolis, Minnesota USA), the GlideWear Prosthetic Liner Patch offers amputees a whole new way of relieving friction and shear-related skin breakdown from their prosthesis.
The GlideWear Prosthetic Liner Patch is simply placed between the at-risk area of the skin and the prosthetic liner or socket when donning the prosthesis each day for immediate relief and lasting protection. Early case reports indicate that the patella, popliteal, and distal anterior tibia are three of the most troubling skin breakdown areas for amputees. However, the GlideWear Prosthetic Liner Patch is appropriate for virtually any lower or upper extremity prosthesis as well as knee bracing applications.
Take a look at this customer testimonial video, recently submitted by Kevin Hines, CPO of Arise Orthotics & Prosthetics (Minneapolis, Minnesota USA), highlighting a double below-knee amputees experience with using the GlideWear Prosthetic Liner Patch.[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yrh_pjli1A8&w=420&h=315]
