ShearBan Diabetic Ulcer Pack | Tamarack Habilitation Technologies, Inc.


ShearBan Self-Adhesive Footwear Patches:

  • Are easy to Install – self-adhesive patches apply directly to footwear, insoles, medical devices, and sports equipment, NOT ON THE SKIN
  • Are ultra-thin – at only 0.015 inches (0.38mm) thick, shoe fit remains unchanged after installation
  • Provide immediate relief from friction & shear that cause pain and contribute to the formation of tissue injury
  • Offer durable, long-lasting protection that lasts up to 300 miles of use (as tested in running shoes) for months of worry-free skin protection.

Apply ShearBan in at-risk areas on footwear, insoles, and medical devices; wherever hot spots, blisters, calluses, and diabetic foot ulcers form to:

  • Enhance comfort and extend periods of functional activity
  • Provide a greater margin of safety for patients with sensory (pain) deficit
  • Maximize orthopedic support and correction beyond what is possible with pressure offloading alone


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).

Product Instructions

1. Apply ShearBan patch directly to insole or footwear, wherever you are experiencing discomfort or skin breakdown

2. Once installed, press firmly around the entire patch surface to ensure proper adhesion.

Optional: Using a hair dryer, apply heat 2-3 inches from patch surface for 10-20 seconds to soften the patch’s adhesive, allowing it to bond thoroughly to the opposing surface. Press firmly around entire patch surface to ensure optimal adhesion.

3. Replace patches if surface wears through to the fabric layer beneath or peels away from the opposing surface.
