microMend, A Novel And Time-Saving Wound Closure Device
Sutures and staples are the usual options for closing wounds postoperatively, but they can be painful and require surgical skills. The microMend Skin Closure Device, produced by Seattle-based KitoTech Medical, provides a potentially better alternative. The device is made of a thin adhesive backing with two arrays of tiny "microstaples" on either side. It is placed across a wound, one side at a time, so that the microstaples can insert into the skin and align the two edges of a wound.
