Canica Design Launches SutureSafe

October 2, 2008 - Canica Design Inc., said its new SutureSafe is now available.

SutureSafe is a noninvasive, adhesive- based wound care device which applies as simply as a bandage, bridging the wound line over sutures or staples. There are 2 main functional elements: The RipStop allows application of SutureSafe at the ideal tension. If the wound is subjected to sudden forces (e.g., coughing or sneezing), the RipStop acts like a safety belt, stopping the wound from pulling apart (dehiscence). The silicone elastic center helps pull together the edges of the wound with a reportedly gentle-but-constant force, counteracting painful pulling against sutures or staples, increasing mobility and speeding the healing process.

SutureSafe is available in 2 sizes: 1/2 in. x 4 in. (13 mm x 102 mm) and 5/8 in. x 8 1/2 in. (16 mm x 216 mm).
