ABOUT

How does microMend PRO work?

Designed like a butterfly bandage, microMend PRO can be applied easily and painlessly in seconds. Microstaples achieve the holding strength of sutures, so that it can be used to securely close most wounds including lacerations, surgical incisions, and port sites. The device is gentle enough to be applied to children and on fragile skin of the elderly and chronically ill, and highly effective in closing skin tears.

Benefits

Combines the speed of a bandage with the strength of a suture.

Can be used with minimal training by a broad range of medical personnel.

Achieves similar holding strength to a suture.4

Closes a wide range of jagged or straight wounds from 1 to 50 cm in length.

Preferred by both patients and medical personnel.

Comfortable to wear because microMend PRO adjusts to skin movement due to Cantilevered Springs and Elastic Backing.

Cosmetic results have been shown to be superior to sutures.

Patients can remove microMend PRO themselves.

Fast and painless application saves time and cost.

Applies in seconds significantly reducing procedure time, increasing patient throughput and saving facility operating costs.

No need for return clinic visit for device removal which is usually not reimbursed.

ABOUT

Improved wound healing

microMend PRO has been shown to achieve excellent cosmetic outcomes, because Microstaples reduce skin irritation and wound trauma, their narrow spacing eliminates wound gaps, their fixed locations on devices reduces variability of placement, and the device creates uniform tension along the wound all of which contribute to scarring with sutures and staples.1,2
