SEATTLE (PRWEB) November 06, 2019
KitoTech Medical, a Seattle-based medical device company, introduced two new versions of its family of proprietary wound closure products, microMend®, at the recent American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) Scientific Assembly in Denver, CO. The products utilize an array of tiny metal staples (Microstaples) attached to an adhesive backing that achieves similar holding strength to a suture with the simplicity of applying a bandage. The expansion of the product portfolio allows microMend to be used to close the vast majority of wounds encountered in clinical practice.
With the additional new products, KitoTech is now able to offer a portfolio of four different devices for closing wounds. Each is of a different size that incorporates the same basic design of microMend. The new devices give microMend the versatility to close wounds in all areas of the body, including the face, fingers, hands, and over joints. The products also make it feasible to close jagged and other complex wounds encountered in the emergency room and urgent care settings.
“At the ACEP meeting, we experienced strong interest in microMend which was reflected by the hundreds of emergency room physicians and other providers who visited our exhibition booth. Physicians were impressed with its ease of use, painless application, and the outstanding clinical results utilizing the product. They were excited about the ability to close lacerations rapidly and without the need for anesthesia in infants and children. Another clinical application that attracted strong interest was the unique ability of microMend to close skin tears, common in elderly and chronically ill patients who have fragile skin, for which there is no effective treatment”, said Ronald Berenson, MD, President and CEO of KitoTech.
microMend is designed to provide emergency medical personnel with a cost-effective, time saving and easy-to-use option for closing lacerations, skin tears, and other wounds. microMend is available for sale in the US and now being used by physicians and other providers throughout the country.
