While often lifesaving sutured and stapled reconnections don’t come without their fair share of complications. At Veltist we created a smart and universal suture support patch that assists surgeons and medical personnel with instantly and unambiguously assessing the integrity of a patient’s sutures all while supporting the healing process.
The intelligent patch is a patent pending technology that is set apart by:
- Its molecular stitch layer that ensures high performance adhesion even in the most demanding conditions.
- Triggerable imaging elements that “turn-on” or “off” depending on the biochemical stresses of the sutured tissue, detectable with readily available techniques (Ultrasound, MRI, CT).
- Therapeutic elements that act passively or actively to the tissue environment under the patch.
- Non-adhesive backing which removes the worry for adjacent tissue adhesions.
