I admit, I don’t know much about stitches. What I do know is that doing them right requires doing them carefully in a sterile environment, and in an emergency where someone needs stitches quickly you may not have either. However, an Israeli plastic surgeon may have fixed this by mixing band aids with a zip tie for Zip Tie Bandages!
Seriously, it looks like zip ties! But the idea is absolutely brilliant. A medic can quickly close a wound more tightly than a regular bandage, stop bleeding quickly, and hopefully minimize scars and further damage. Is there anything zip ties can’t do?
For a more technical explanation on these Zip Tie Bandages, check out this YouTube video below, and check out the official Top Closure Tension Relief System site for more information!
