How Does GlideWear Work?

GlideWear fabric uses a patented, dual-layer technology to protect skin and reduce the friction that causes rubbing, bed sores, pressure ulcers, wounds, redness, and pain. GlideWear is durable, washable, and reusable.

Now companies can buy GlideWear Pre-Ply Fabric in bulk, and add it to their own products to make them even more effective. Use GlideWear in socks, wheelchair accessories, clothing, medical devices, wound care materials, or athletic apparel.

“I immediately felt a difference in how my skin felt after getting into my wheelchair in the morning… I have noticed a significant reduction in red marks on my skin and heat rash bumps were all but gone. I have since ordered six additional pairs.” — Jason in Minnesota

  1. Elizabeth

    I had a client who found this fabric and wanted to try it out for her dog who is an amputee and wears a prosthetic leg. I called and was connected with a sales person within minutes who was more than happy to help and supply us with some of the product. She loved it and it worked wonders! Her puppy had just healed up some nasty sores and they tried it out on her new skin with great success. No rubbing or redness at all. Can’t wait to see how it holds up over time!


      Thank you so much for your feedback, Elizabeth! We are absolutely delighted to hear that the GlideWear low friction fabric technology is working well for your client’s dog.

      Coincidentally, a veterinary orthotics and prosthetics provider, named OrthoPets, is introducing a new line of GlideWear veterinary sleeves this week that we’ve been working on for months. It’s exciting to know that the products and technologies we’ve developed for human applications are also working well for our beloved pets as well. Thanks again for your feedback!
