HEALING BEGINS WITH A SECURE CLOSURE
SPEED. SIMPLICITY. STRENGTH
Surgical staples do not allow for precise wound alignment, leading to arched stapling positioning shown (this is also why they should never be used on the face or neck). In most patients, stapling also makes their scar more pronounced and darker in color, especially if the staples are left in for any length of time.
BandGrip 3.5”x1.5” bandages offer a minimally invasive method of wound closure (it can also be tiled or applied along the length of the wound for large incisions). BandGrip’s ease of use allows for more precision, enabling surgeons to better align laceration edges for a cleaner look. Watch the Video.
BandGrip holds surgical incisions and laceration edges closed without needles or staples, reducing negative cosmetic outcomes. But we know a picture is worth a thousand words. Below, see for yourself the results of orthopedic surgery using staples versus BandGrip wound closure solutions.
