Micro-Anchors Make the Difference

Unique, curved Micro-Anchors gently and securely grip the skin to keep the wound edges closed during the critical healing period. By design, common problems associated with conventional closure materials are potentially avoided. BandGrip Micro-Anchor Skin Closures are designed for continuous use for up to 15 days.

With a firm grip and lasting hold, BandGrip Micro-Anchor Skin Closures hold surgical incisions and lacerations closed with simplicity and strength. Transparent and not made with natural rubber latex, BandGrip is easily applied and removed.

Save Time

We know that orthopedic surgeons have tight schedules. Anything that can speed up extemporaneous activities like closing surgical wounds makes it easier to optimize scheduling to better serve the needs of patients. With BandGrip Micro-Anchor Skin Closures, orthopedic surgeons and surgical assistants can close wounds faster than with traditional methods like sutures. Closure of a small incision was timed at <30 seconds* compared to sutures.

Happier Patients

BandGrip Micro-Anchor Skin Closures can improve patients’ experience both in recovery and at home on their own. Unlike the raised surfaces of staples and zippers, and the “whiskers” associated with sutures, the smooth surface of BandGrip Micro-Anchor Skin Closures don’t catch on dressings or clothing and patients can even shower with them on after 24 hours. And since BandGrip is non-invasive, there are no additional wound punctures to the skin, reducing the concerns of negative cosmetic outcomes and negative perception of the surgeon’s work.

Removal Instructions
