Improved Medical Suture Invented (CBA-3230)

Share Article

InventHelp, founded in 1984 in Pittsburgh, is attempting to submit this idea, the Color Code Suture System, to applicable companies for their consideration.

Although in comparison to surgery, administering sutures does not seem as complex or involved of a process for surgeons, but that is not always the case. Physicians must suture evenly and thoroughly, a task that can become difficult when using conventional sutures in areas with dense hair or on patients with darker skin pigments.

An inventor from Darlington, S.C., has invented the patent-pending COLOR CODE SUTURE SYSTEM, a modified surgical suture that is easier to see. "I felt compelled to invent something that would facilitate safety when surgeons administer sutures," said the inventor. "This invention would help surgeons to differentiate between hair, blood and the sutures."

COLOR CODE SUTURE SYSTEM allows physicians to work more efficiently and improves speed and accuracy in situations where lighting conditions are not ideal. Its improved design serves as a more effective alternative to standard dark colored sutures, which can be difficult to see during application, while cleaning and during removal.

This invention helps physicians to suture more evenly for a better result that minimizes the appearance of scarring, as well as patient discomfort and distress during both the application and removal processes. Additionally, it offers an aesthetic appeal to patients.

The original design was submitted to the Columbia office of InventHelp. It is currently available for licensing or sale to manufacturers or marketers.
