January 18, 2014 (PRLEAP.COM) Business News
For those who wear prosthetics, the irritation and breakdown of skin that comes from the friction between the skin and the prosthetic is one of the biggest problems encountered. Glidewear prosthetic liner patches form a protective liner between the residual limb and the prosthetic liner, sock, or socket to make wearing the prosthetic more comfortable and prevent potential damage and infection. Ithaca Sports is the only online resource for purchasing Glidewear prosthetic liner patches which are available in 2 sizes to provide targeted shear and friction protection and reduce irritation to skin.

The technology used in Glidewear is a patented low-friction design that has been used for years to provide protection between skin and clothing, footwear, orthotic, prosthetic devices, wheelchair seating, and mattress covers. It is the first opportunity to use this product specifically for transtibial amputees. To use the patch, wearers simply place the patch over the area of concern. The interface material conforms to bony contours without compromising the fit of the liner and socket. Glidewear patches come in packages of 2 and are available in sizes of small and large to fit a variety of needs.
