A handle may be affixed to the backing plate for applying the adhesive strip s to the wound area by moving the mounting surface into contact with the wound area and for removing the mounting surface from the adhesive strips when the strips are adhered to the wound area. This innovative Soft Port More information. The invention of claim 10 further comprising: The inherent elasticity of the product allows the strips to elongate and yield to the movement of skin, preventing the concentration of forces at the proximal ends and reducing the chances of traction blisters or skin shear. Kinesio Tape was used on skin wounds such as burns, abrasions and incised wounds to examine its effects on the recovery rate More information. Each end of the elastic is attached to the retention button on its respective side.
Wound Closure Strips
Made from polyester, cotton, and nylon spandex.

Extending between the vertices of each pair of opposed notches are perforations comprising two die cut slits This feature ensures that the waste backing strip is sufficiently rigid that it will peel away from the tape and be pushed along bottom wall surface 64 and rearwardly through passageway 46 into the storage chamber. Wound Care and Dressings. It easily integrates into the wound and helps provide the optimal environment to repair, reconstruct and replace wound tissue.

The storage chamber is preferably quadrangular or trapeziform in shape to minimize friction between the waste liner and the walls of the storage chamber while maximizing its effective diameter. Use before and after More information. The lower end of the flap has an enlarged, generally rounded lobe or bar 68 extending horizontally along its inner side adjacent the post.
