Company Summary

KitoTech has recently launched our novel wound closure product, microMend, onto the market. It is applied like a bandage, which makes it much faster and easier to use than sutures and removed by the patient eliminating return clinic visits. With pricing similar to sutures, this translates into reduced procedure costs, and increased convenience for patients. Superior healing & cosmetic results to sutures have also been shown in clinical studies.
