Tamarack Habilitation Technologies
µ = 0.2 - Innovative Textile Solution to reduce technical/medical Shear
Tamarack Habilitation Technologies, originally a patient service provider, has been trusted since 1990 by professionals worldwide to help improve patient mobility and prevent skin and tissue breakdown. Recently we have developed a new line of textile friction reduction products for rubbing, blister, and decubitus ulcer prevention, Tamarack now offers a range of materials and products, textile and non-textile, designed to reduce shear and its undesired effects.
In the textile sector we have developed GlideWear® a dual ply textile material with a coefficient of friction of 0.2 between its layers. This is "extremely slippery", comparable to car tires on ice.
GlideWear reduces - under load bearing conditions - any shear stress from tangential forces in the contact area in technical, orthopedic, biomedical and wound care applications. GlideWear performs so well, that "strategic application" is highly recommended for effective and economic consideration. It is a highly inventive/disruptive innovation - please ask us for details and a demonstration.
