ShearBan’s patented ultra-low friction PTFE film with durable self-adhesive backing reduces the friction and shear that contribute to the formation of blisters, bunions, calluses, corns, and foot ulceration. ShearBan is ideal for patching troublesome areas of orthopedic braces, prosthetic sockets, footwear, insoles, athletic equipment, and more.
Target Rubbing at the Source!
ShearBan works by reducing friction only in specific, at-risk areas of footwear, insoles, medical devices and sports equipment to protect sensitive tissue from wound formation. Friction is retained in surrounding areas to optimize mobility and stability for users. Unlike on-skin bandages designed for temporary coverage, ShearBan provides months of lasting protection with a single application.
ShearBan Works To:
- Enhance comfort and extend the user’s ability to walk, run, work, and play each day
- Provide a greater margin of safety for individuals who are highly susceptible to skin breakdown; especially individuals with neuropathic foot conditions, amputations, or foot deformities
- Maximize orthopedic support and correction beyond what’s possible with pressure offloading alone due to the reduction in tissue deformation where ShearBan is used
Learn How ShearBan Reduce Friction & Shear
By targeting at-risk areas within footwear, insoles, and medical devices, ShearBan protects sensitive tissue without compromising stability necessary for traction and propulsion (walking, running).
