DynaClose Topical skin closure – close wounds without grafts or negative pressure
Open Wounds Under Low Tension
DynaClose provides an easy and non-invasive method to close retracted or dehisced wounds up to 5 cm in width. It acts dynamically, moving with skin as it is stretched, while always providing a consistent appositional force.
DynaClose provides a second chance at skin closure for failing wounds. The clear elastomeric strip is anchored by an adhesive fabric tape on either side. Continuous traction is maintained by regularly changing the DynaClose until the wound is closed.

A Dynamic Tissue Systems® Solution Open wounds impose serious clinical consequences
Gentle, unrelenting dynamic appositional forces (cyclic stretching) counters the retracting forces that keep wounds open.
How? Cyclic stretching of tissue facilitates collagen fiber rotation, increasing skin coverage.**Continued cyclic stretching leads to constructive remodeling including tissue generation and adaptation.
Unlike static devices, dynamic therapeutic tension rapidly addresses the challenge of the retracted, stable wound. Therapeutic tension addresses the inertia required to return wound edges back to their original position for delayed primary closure.
Open wounds retract laterally due to the inherent mechanical properties of tissue, increasing the degree of difficulty and time to definitive closure. A long-standing retracted open wound is not necessarily a permanent defect.
DynaClose can return tissue back to its closed system state with normal functional tension.
