We’re delighted to announce that Tamarack Habilitation Technologies has been announced as a finalist for the 2015 Minnesota Manufacturing Awards for the development and commercialization of GlideWear® technology.
GlideWear is a unique, dual layer fabric technology that, when sewn strategically within garments and other textile products, provides users with all-day protection against friction and shear-related skin breakdown.
Healthcare products currently manufactured using GlideWear shear protection technology include wheelchair cushion and headrest covers, prosthetic liner patches, socks, and underwear. Additional products are under development, including a “Pre-Ply” version for third party manufacturers to sew into their own textile products.
Minnesota Business’ 2015 Minnesota Manufacturing Awards winners will be announced Wednesday, September 24, 2015 at a evening ceremony.
GlideWear products are proudly manufactured, packaged, and distributed from Tamarack’s headquarters, located in Minnesota, USA.
