These wound closure strips take bandages to the next level. It’s known as the ‘Zip Stitch’ surgical-quality wound closure device. This advanced wound care tool allows you to securely close and heals deep cuts by yourself without the need for stitches and a laceration kit.
All you have to do is, simply apply the sticky bandage around the wound and use the zip to close. However, the inventors of this wound care device say It’s a surgical quality skin closure. On the other hand, ZipStitch wound closure strips are secured on the two sides of the wound with a couple of 1.5-inch strips.
Those strips come with a unique hydro-colloid pressure-sensitive adhesive. Also, this design will last for up to seven days when placed on dry and clean skin. The four zip ties are made from a medical-grade polymer material. They merge the two adhesives with micro-adjustable wound closing ability. So these ties allow you to safely close injuries without stitches and needles.
Those zip ties are extremely easy to handle and operate. A group of zip ties on the wound closure strips enables you to change the pulling power over the length of the wound. So it provides the appropriate amount of closure at all places of the wound.
The micro-adjustable zip ties give you complete control of the wound closure. It shields your injury from forces that lead to increased scarring. Its even force distribution also decreases the compression on both sides of your wound. So that helps to maintain smooth blood flow for quick healing. Zip stitch also acts as a protecting cage around your wound. It also secures the wound from movements that will pull on the wound and slow down the healing process.
The zip mechanism is 8 times stronger than traditional stitches. This wound closure strip is a perfect new addition to your first-aid kit. Finally, the Zip Stitch wound closure strips are a non-painful solution you can apply anywhere when you are unable to get to an ER for stitches.
