The DERMACLOSE Continuous External Tissue Expander device facilitates rapid tissue movement to reduce or reapproximate wounds. After the initial application has been completed the DERMACLOSE device does not require any additional tightening. Once the desired tissue expansion has occurred the device(s) can be removed and the wound can be closed with suture or staples.
Proprietary design addresses the insole issue: Rigid insoles do not allow the arch to move downward enough to fully handle the shock of a foot strike. Soft insoles collapse under pressure and cannot prevent the arch from flattening. Custom orthotics are designed to fit the patient’s flawed foot rather than make the foot healthy.
Keeping one’s feet healthy is an important component of overall health.
