The GlideWear Skin Protection Pillowcase from IndeMedical.com uses patented technology to protect the scalp, ears, cheeks, and face from harmful friction and shear. GlideWear is a two-layer fabric that absorbs harmful friction and shear between its two layers, protecting the skin from friction and rubbing. The GlideWear Skin Protection Pillowcase absorbs friction where the head comes into contact with the pillow.
If you have limited mobility and spend much of the day and night in bed, your pillow might be the problem. When your head moves on a standard pillowcase, the fabric resists the movement and causes friction. That friction can lead to scalp damage and hair loss. People in long-term care and people with spinal cord injury are at a particular high risk for injury, including sores on their ears.
