Incision Isolation Zone
The force distribution system is designed to provide uniform closure forces as well as create an isolation zone around the incision to protect it from patient-induced distraction forces.
The integrated linkage in the Zip device is designed to provide dynamic compression during axial incision extension. Patient’s movement can cause the incision to extend along its length.
The Zip device gently compresses the incision during axial extension, allowing a secure wound closure during the wound healing process.
