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.
Available in men's & women's models from adult small to 5XL sizes. Made in the USA.
