DermaClip Non-Invasive Skin Closure Device

The DermaClip device is a single-use, non-invasive, needle-less skin closure device that is designed to achieve full eversion on each skin closure. This is accomplished through a patented design that incorporates a plastic structures that mates a "Living Hinge" sandwiched between two layers of alkylate-based adhesive to a ratchet mechanism so as to lift the skin in the closure process and evert it.

For larger wounds, the distance between the two sides can be expanded beyond the initial width. Just gently pull the adhesive pads apart to create the additional distance between the sides. After expanding the device to bridge the gap between the wound edges, manually approximate the wound to allow placement of the DermaClip devices.

The device has been used successfully in place of sutures, medical staples or skin glues to close a broad range of procedures, including:

  • Cesarean section
  • Adbominoplasty
  • Mastectomy
  • Total hip replacement
  • Wound & laceration repair
  • Skin tears in geriatric & diabetic patients
  • Pediatric wound closure

With use ranging from the operating or emergency room to out in the field, DermaClip presents a unique solution to reduce closure time while eliminating needlestick risk and skin punctures. That's the DermaClip non-invasive approach to wound closure.

DermaClip is made of top-of-the-line, non-latex, long-duration adhesive. The adhesive is strong enough to effectively maintain wound closure for 7 to 10 days while remaining gentile enough for use on fragile skin. The DermaClip device is made from non-latex materials.

This gentile adhesive is designed to work well works well on fragile, diabetic or geriatric skin. The adhesive based spreads the tension of the closure across the entire pad, reducing the focal tension on the skin edges that leads to additional trauma and skin tearing.

The goal of the DermaClip device is to eliminate trade-offs in skin closure between time of closure and quality of patient care. The DermaClip device's ability to be used on patients with fragile skin enables it to be one of the most complete closure solutions on the market.
