ZipStitch is surgical quality wound closure to help close minor lacerations quickly with no needles or puncturing of the skin.
ZipStitch is the most advanced wound closure device available without a prescription. It is designed to enable virtually anyone to professionally treat cuts that can’t be closed with bandages, on the spot, wherever they may be. Ideal for a first aid kit, ZipStitch can save time and money and provide peace-of-mind for workers who are out of range of a hospital.
The innovative design is both easy to use and effective. The device consists of two 1.5 inch strips of a unique hydrocolloid pressure-sensitive adhesive and four precision zip-ties made of a medical-grade polymer that connect the 2 adhesive strips. The zip-tie strips enable micro-adjustment to precisely close the wound.
This design has several benefits:
- Wound closure without needles, skin puncturing and associated pain
- Easy to handle and control
- Ability to adjust and customize the tension across the length of the wound so users can precisely control how they close the wound.
- ZipStitch acts as a scaffold or cage around the wound, isolating and protecting the wound from user movement that can pull on the wound and disrupt healing.
FDA-cleared ZipStitch is truly surgical-quality wound care. The technology has been used in operating rooms and ERs around the world since 2014. To date, Zip technology has been used as a non-invasive alternative to stitches to close wounds in over 500,000 procedures. It has been proven safe and effective in over a dozen clinical studies, delivering 8X better wound protection and less scarring than stitches or staples. In fact, most patients preferred Zip to stitches.
ZipStitch is a substantial upgrade versus butterfly or strip closures that are basically just strips of tape.
