If you’re an active person, you may get injuries while you’re far, far away from any sort of medical care. Sometimes these require stitches which can be troublesome if the hospital is way out of range. If this is a worry you have, then check out the ZipStitch, the stitches alternative for those times you can’t make it to the ER for care.
This wound care pulls the wound closed with a series of tighteners. Like you’re coresetting the wound. Unlike stitches you don’t need any advanced medical training to apply this, you just need to clean the area and stick it on.
This is a really nice thing to have in a first aid kit but it’s also probably a super good idea to check in with an actual doctor when you can about your injury. Don’t just assume you stopped the bleeding and alls well. You can get one of these for $29.99 which is more expensive than conventional bandages but also then an ER trip.
