Advances in technology have improved healthcare providers' ability to rapidly diagnose patients at the point of care, screen for common conditions, and provide a variety of effective treatment options. Providers need to be aware of what innovations are available - or will become available in the near future. It is the purpose of Medgizmos to educate and inform healthcare providers regarding the latest and greatest technologies.

ZipLine Medical Closure

Another painless, suture free wound closure system comes from ZipLine Medical (Campbell, California). It was developed initially as a surgical incision closure system – but the device has been adopted by primary care providers as a method to close simple lacerations. The ZipLine system consists of an adhesive matrix of beaded plastic “zip ties” that are placed over a laceration and secured in place.  One pulls on each tie to approximate wound edges then merely removes the excess with a scissor. Again, easy, quick, painless and less likely to scar compared to traditional suturing or stapling. Zipline Medical also produces a home care product called ZipStitch intended to be used by patients and parents to close simple lacerations on their own.
