Introducing an innovative solution to skin trauma for wheelchair users
GlideWear® is a solution for wheelchair users as it helps reduce friction and shear. GlideWear® slips over most wheelchair cushions. Its dual-layered Shear Reduction Zone™ glides with the user’s skin while the single layered stability zone helps improve the user positioning and control. The GlideWear® fabric is lightweight and breathable which helps reduce moisture build-up.
• Versatile - GlideWear® slip-on covers are designed to fit most wheelchair cushions and may be installed over the existing cushion cover
• Breathable - lightweight fabric helps reduce moisture buildup to preserve skin integrity
• Positioning and stabilization - friction is retained in the areas surrounding the Shear Reduction Zone™ with a unique design within the interface, which helps maintain proper positioning and stability while sitting
• Shear Reduction Zone™ - dual layer fabric technology designed to slide against itself, absorbing friction and shear forces under bony prominences to assure a healthy margin or safety where skin is most susceptible to injury
GlideWear® Seating interface’s are constructed with 85% Nylon, 15% Spandex material with 100% polyester thread. Meets 16CFR1610 standards.
