TRUST Member Caroline Portoghese was interviewed for an article about a clothing line specifically designed for children who have epidermolysis bullosa (EB) — a rare, painful disease where any amount of friction causes the skin to blister and slough off. Caroline, who is Senior Clinical and Education Specialist at Tamarack Habilitation Technologies, Inc., spoke about GlideWear, Tamarack's patented, low-friction fabric technology, “We’ve had remarkable results with the GlideWear prototypes we’ve made for kids with EB. We’re looking forward to helping even more kids by launching the GlideWear clothing line.” Read the full article in Textile World online.

Thanks for sharing this! So many people came together to make this launch possible on a short timeline so we could help kids with epidermolysis bullosa (EB) in a tangible way.
