Fort Detrick, MD – 6/22/2017. DermaClip® took part in the Military Health System (MHS) Vendor Day, an event to introduce new ideas and services to the military service medical logistics agencies located at Fort Detrick. The event targeted products and devices relevant to operational / deployable medical kitting, components, and the military's Stop-The-Bleed Campaign, all of which fall into areas where DermaClip® can be effective.
Among those present were the Defense Health Agency Medical Logistics Division (DHQ MEDLOG), U.S. Army Medical Research and Materiel Command USAMRMC), U.S. Army Medical Materiel Agency (USAMMA), Naval Medical Logistics Command (NMLC), Air Force Medical Operations Agency (AFMOA), and U.S. Marine Corp Systems Command (MARCORSYSCOM).
This was the second DermaClip® visit to Vendor Day to show its non-invasive skin closure device. In a military setting, DermaClip® is effective across the full range of situations soldiers or surgeons might find themselves in, from battle field to operating theater. "The team is very excited about the potential to work with the United States Armed Force and bring this innovative solution to help our forces both at home and abroad," said Christopher Darling, VP of Business Development & US Operations who was representing the DermaClip® team at the event.
DermaClip® is a revolutionary, new non-invasive skin closure device made of hypoallergenic adhesive coupled with a polypropylene bridge that allows for the quick and easy closure of surface wounds and the final stage of surgical incisions. With no puncturing or crushing of the skin, the patented single-use, needle-less device is designed to evert the skin on every closure to promote healthy healing while being quick and easy to use.
The DermaClip® team believes that high quality skin closure should be available to everyone, regardless of access to high-end services. The team aims to eliminate the trade-offs in skin closure made between time of closure and quality of patient care.
The US operations of DermaClip® are owned and operated by DermaClip® US, L.L.C., a Texas based company.
