A suture-like outcome at the speed of staples
This article was originally published in Start Up
For many years, non-absorbable and absorbable sutures and staples have been the primary method of closing the external skin layer. Both types of devices provide good incision closure to promote wound healing, but they have drawbacks. There hasn't been much innovation in incision closure over the last decade, but now, innovative companies are working to address concerns with the gold standards. ZipLine Medical Inc. hopes to be at the forefront of this evolution with a noninvasive, external skin closure system intended as an alternative to sutures and staples that decreases operating time, heals the wound in a uniform manner with minimum skin stress and a much-improved aesthetic result and is easily removed by the patient at home.
