We’re excited to announce that Tamarack Habilitation Technologies was awarded the Best New Products: Textiles category winner at the 2015 Minnesota Manufacturing Awards last night, sponsored by Minnesota Business Magazine.
Nominations for this year’s award were collected over a two-month period and reviewed by an external judging panel, consisting of industry experts across all professional platforms. The two other finalists in this category included Clothier Design Source and Safe Reflections Inc.

Tamarack recently launched a series of new GlideWear® Shear Protection products, featuring the company’s patented, dual layer strategic friction management fabric technology. GlideWear products currently include shear protection wheelchair cushion & headrest covers, underwear, socks, and prosthetic liner patches.
Unlike other dual layer products on the market, Tamarack strategically applies it’s low friction fabric technology only in at-risk areas, where skin breakdown has previously occurred or where individuals are likely to develop pressure ulcers and breakdown while using various seating, support surface, and mobility devices. GlideWear products intentionally avoid featuring low friction fabric properties in surrounding (non at-risk areas) to optimize functional stability and comfort for the user.
Tamarack would like to thank Minnesota Business Magazine and the esteemed panel of judges for considering and selecting GlideWear technology as a category winner at the 2015 Minnesota Manufacturing Awards!
