Test Volunteers Sought

Tamarack Habilitation Technologies, Blaine, is recruiting up to 50 people who use standard skin protection seat cushions in their wheelchair for a market test of our new product technology. Tamarack has developed a new product technology called “GlideWear”. The first application using this technology is a wheelchair seat cushion cover. The GlideWear cover can be used with any standard cushion typically used for skin protection, and simply installs over the original cushion cover. The GlideWear area on the seat cushion cover provides a lowfriction interface beneath the pelvis and hips – this reduces shear forces where the skin is most vulnerable to breaking down. Tamarack will provide one GlideWear seat cover based on the size of your cushion at no charge. Participants will need to install it on the cushion using the directions provided. A questionnaire will be provided to collect feedback, with all questionnaires needing to be returned to Tamarack by October 1.
