Pressures sores can be painful and difficult to heal — and can negatively impact your quality of life. Left untreated, pressure sores (also called “pressure ulcers,” “bed sores,” “pressure points,” or “decubitus ulcers”) can lead to months of bed rest and even hospitalization. GlideWear Skin Protection Underwear are designed for people who spend much of the day sitting or laying down, especially people with with reduced sensation (lack of feeling) below their waist. The GlideWear zone protects the buttocks, tailbone, coccyx, sacrum, and ischial tuberosities (“sit bones”) from the harmful friction and shear which cause pressure sores.
GlideWear Skin Protection Shorts use a patented, dual-layer fabric technology to protect skin and reduce the friction and shear that cause pressure sores. Seams are very flat and strategically placed away from high-risk areas. The result is a comfortable, breathable pair of shorts that protects you from the friction and shear that redness, pressure sores, and skin breakdown.
“I immediately felt a difference in how my skin felt after getting into my wheelchair in the morning… I have noticed a significant reduction in red marks on my skin and heat rash bumps were all but gone. I have since ordered six additional pairs.” — Customer in Minnesota

The Cost of Pressure Sore
Pressure sores can be life threatening. (Christopher Reeve, best known as “Superman,” died of pressure sore-related complications.) Pressure sores, which often start out as red marks on bony parts of your tailbone area, can go from non-existent to debilitating in a matter of hours. They’re especially common in people with reduced sensation, including those with spinal cord injury. Pressure sores significantly reduce wheelchair users’ and seniors’ mobility and quality of life. They can mean you’re at home, in bed, instead of going to work or spending time with your family. Even in a young, healthy person, a pressure sore can take months — or even years — to heal. During those months, someone with a pressure sore is often on mandatory bed rest for the majority of the day. Being proactive about pressure sores is essential.
When you buy GlideWear Skin Protection Shorts, you’re not just buying a pair of shorts. You’re buying a tool that reduces the friction and shear that cause painful, debilitating pressure sores.
