ZipStitch has apparently been around for a few years now, but this is the first we’ve heard of it. ZipStitch panels, described as “needle-free sutures”, seem like they’d be easy enough to use. You place ZipStitch over a wound, tighten the zip ties to close the wound, and cut off the ends.
Would it be better than Steri Strips? We dunno, we’re still looking for reviews and further information online, but these certainly look interesting. Likely of more use on a linear laceration than something like, say, Meg’s bite, but that’s still a nice benefit. According to the manufacturer, ZipStitch may be used on wounds up to 1.5 in. in length…which isn’t exactly huge, but again – for the intended purpose, these could be a good addition to a vehicle medical or individual blowout kit.
ZipStitch is based on the same principles as ZipLine, a surgical product thus far used in hundreds of thousands of medical procedures, and a couple months ago it earned a Bronze Award for Medical Design Excellence in the Over-the-Counter and Self-Care Products category. That’s enough for us to want to give it a try.
Anyone reading this ever used these before? If so, chime in and let us know what you think.
They’re on Facebook too, /ZipStitch/.
