Fort Detrick, MD – 9/28/2016. DermaClip® took part in the Military Health System Vendor Day, an event to introduce new ideas and services to the military service medical logistics agencies located at Fort Detrick. 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). Joining the team presenting the device was Dr. Jeffrey S. Freed, Chairman of the DermaClip® Medical Advisory Board.
“The military use case for DermaClip® is tremendous. It’s effective across the full range of situations soldiers or surgeons might find themselves in, from battle field to operating theater,” said Christopher Darling, DermaClip® VP of Business Development & Operations. “Given the tremendous reception we received from all military agencies present at the Military Health Science Research Symposium (MHSRS) in Orlando, MHS Vendor Day was the perfect opportunity to reach additional members of the military medical community. We are very excited to bring this innovative solution to help our armed forces both at home and abroad,” he continued.
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.
