The GlideWear Prosthetic Liner Patch from IndeMedical.com uses a patented fabric technology designed to protect skin and reduce the friction that causes hot spots and sores. GlideWear Patches absorb shear to protect amputees’ skin where it comes into contact with their prosthetic liner. Friction and rubbing can lead to blisters, discomfort, and even open wounds. And left untreated, wounds on your limb can prevent you from using your prosthesis and limit your mobility.
We recommend choosing a patch that’s slightly larger than the area of concern to ensure the patch sufficiently covers your limb but is not too large in order to avoid the fabric from folding over itself when draped over your limb.
