Four different lengths


Zip comes in four different lengths to accommodate the needs of various procedures and specialties. You can also trim, cut, and combine Zip for all types of incisions.

Zip 4 For closure of incision up to 4 cm in length
Zip 8i For closure of incision up to 8 cm in length
Zip 16 For closure of incision up to 16 cm in length
Zip 24 For closure of incision up to 24 cm in length


Incision Isolation Zone

The force distribution system is designed to provide uniform closure forces as well as create an isolation zone around the incision to protect it from patient-induced distraction forces.

Dynamic compression

The integrated linkage in the Zip device is designed to provide dynamic compression during axial incision extension. Patient’s movement can cause the incision to extend along its length.
The Zip device gently compresses the incision during axial extension, allowing a secure wound closure during the wound healing process.
