microMend consists of an array of miniature stainless steel staples (Microstaples) attached to an adhesive backing that combines the holding strength of a suture with the simplicity of applying a bandage. It represents an easy-to-use, time-saving, and cost-effective option for closing lacerations, skin tears, surgical incisions, and other wounds. microMend’s consumer products make it possible for people to treat lacerations at home, in the outdoors or elsewhere, and avoid ER or Urgent Care Clinic visits. microMend’s medical products are being used in the ER, Urgent Care Clinics, and Operating Rooms throughout the US.
