Description

The microMend™ Skin Closure Device is an easy-to-use alternative to sutures or surgical staples when skin closure is required. The device is fast and easy to apply like a bandage, with the holding strength of sutures. MicroMend’s patent-pending microstaple technology reduces procedure time and increases points of contact with the skin along then length of the wound compared to sutures and staples. Also, the device improves patient experience, as they are more comfortable and easier to remove than standard invasive methods of skin closure. Removal can be performed at home by the patient. MicroMend devices can be used on a variety of lacerations and incisions and with wounds of various lengths, as the devices can be applied right next to each other.
