CHICAGO (PRWEB) March 10, 2019
BandGrip, Inc., creator of BandGrip advanced wound closure solutions, is proud to announce that is has been named one of the Top 10 Orthopedic Solution Providers of 2019 by MedTech Outlook, an industry magazine committed to covering the trends, challenges, and solutions that impact the healthcare and medical device sectors.
BandGrip was chosen for providing orthopedic surgeons with an alternative to sutures, staples, glues, and adhesives. A quick, easy, and non-invasive skin closure device, BandGrip uses patented micro-anchors to close wounds, allowing the body to heal naturally. Not only does BandGrip reduce needlestick injuries, scarring, and infection, it’s saving surgeons valuable time—something that is in short supply as our population ages.
“The idea of piercing the skin or making additional lacerations around incisions is barbaric,” says Fred Smith, CEO of BandGrip, Inc. “We have come forward with an outstanding innovation to eliminate complexities in wound closure.”
MedTech Outlook’s distinguished selection panel agrees with these sentiments. The panel, comprised of CEOs, CIOs, VCs, industry analysts, and MedTech Outlook’s editorial board, curate a list of best-in-class orthopedic solutions providers each year that exhibit innovative technologies and strategies.
“We’re thrilled to join the other nine innovators on MedTech Outlook’s Top Orthopedic Solution Providers list,” says Smith. “BandGrip’s aim is to make life easier for surgeons, and to make surgery easier for patients. To be recognized for achieving our goal is very rewarding.”
