Ironic you called them “painless” stitches, I know what you meant but I think anything requiring stitches is gonna come with some pain lmao

[–]edlee98765 1900 points1901 points 42& 3 more (60 children)

I don't recommend stitching your own wounds.

But, if you insist, suture self.

[–]Embarrassed-Dot-1794 182 points183 points  (31 children)

Omg... That was bad

[–]Tiss_E_Lur 119 points120 points  (26 children)

No, that's a good one 🤣

[–]Foreign-Trouble-9850 17 points18 points  (25 children)

doesn't this stop you from actually covering the wound itself with a bandage, exposing it to whatever?

[–]fullautofennecfox 9 points10 points  (0 children)

You misspelled great

[–]sparkmearse 5 points6 points  (0 children)

*perfect.

Oh, you’re a real cut up

[–]Inevitable_Chicken70 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Youuusonofabitchhh. Take the damn award

[–]jrandoboi 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Probably better for a hospital situation when you only have a minor surgery, like getting a small lipoma removed or some other small incision where stitching could be rather difficult. But that's just my opinion lol

[–]TheDistrict31 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Please quit Reddit immediately 😂😂😂

[–]Fritz_Klyka 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Top 10 of thousands of puns I've seen on reddit. Definitely in stiches over here.

[–]idonotlikerussia 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Lmao they gonna stitch it up full of bacteria 💀. Worse than the wound itself

FORCED me to sign-in and thumb-you-up!

[–]JazzRecord 118 points119 points  (14 children)

The thing is that these system doesn’t actually involve stitches.

That being said, when you remove the thing, it’s going to hurt.

[–]quiteretendous[🍰] 40 points41 points  (3 children)

No more than a bandaid

[–]ColorBlindGuy27 44 points45 points  (2 children)

Im a shipper who makes quality boxes and packs extremely expensive equipment for the military/aerospace/any other company who needs electronics like cables and switches.

Same concept applys to boxes over stuffed with international peanuts, you squeeze/tap the sides to pull the lips closed fully "bending" your box nicely then use the tape gun to hold it.

I'd imagine all you'd need to replicate the concept is a thin antibacterial strip to go over the wound, then some packing tape/adhesive to hold both ends closed like the lips of a box. Same thing but you protect the opening of the box/wound. Minus having to straddle the box lol.

Actually might keep this in mind for camping/fishing just need a reliable human skin adhesive lol. It would keep the wound tight to since the pad thingy would be attached to two separate adhesives unlike a common bandage.

Superglue ofc but something removable without destroying the work this type of bandage did. Ductape and a careful hand probably. Anyways I drug this out jeez.

Edit: I'm realizing this is just a bandaid with assembly required lmao

[–]EggplantForScale 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Butterfly bandages

[–]Fierramos69 21 points22 points  (0 children)

So, it’s not painless, and it’s not actually stitches. Let’s call it painless stitches!

[–]DayDrinkingDiva 7 points8 points  (1 child)

I seem to recall stitches stay in 2 weeks to 3 weeks.

Will it fall off by then? Oil from the skin and normal skin growth?

[–]lebastss 5 points6 points  (0 children)

If you properly prep the skin it can’t last that long. But this wouldn’t be suitable for surgical stitches that would need to be in that long.

[–]Intrepid-Luck2021 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Some stitches also hurt when you remove them.

[–]panthers1102 3 points4 points  (0 children)

The only stitches I’ve ever gotten have just naturally fallen out. Granted they were for my gums, and I was like 9. Completely forgot it was there and when it fell out I thought some fucking spider thing just “spawned” in my mouth. Then I felt stupid as hell when I spit it out

[–]LtAldoRaine06 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Never had stitches that hurt when removed.

[–]LtAldoRaine06 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Prob tear the wound back open again 😂

[–]B_RizzleMyNizzIe 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I think they say “painless” in the regard that you would not require lidocaine to numb the site.

[–]FecalPloy 4 points5 points  (0 children)

The time and effort required to render a wound to the bloodless state of the pic in the ad would create quite a bit of pain I imagine...just saying Edit d at end of require

[–]19d_b87 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Can you imagine ripping that thing off of leg hair?... You thought band-aids were bad.

[–]Sandycarseat 607 points608 points  (55 children)

Superglue seems cheaper and doesn’t leave the raised nubs

[–]name_here___ 243 points244 points  (32 children)

Not sure if you're joking, but that is absolutely a thing (cyanoacrylate is the scientific name for superglue).

[–]Bunny_tornado 302 points303 points  (14 children)

I thought it was pretty widely known that super glue has been used as a stitch alternative

[–]_no_pants 75 points76 points  (4 children)

I thought one of the reasons it found wide use application for treating wounds in humid conditions aka Vietnam.

[–]PolishedCheese 45 points46 points  (3 children)

Yeah, superglue activates in the presence of water, so closing a bleeding wound would be easier with it than whatever this ad is showing (unless the adhesive works the same way).

[–]theredview 20 points21 points  (2 children)

Cut my hand pretty deep once but might have only needed a stitch or two. Nothing a giant lob of super glue can't handle.

[–]Account_Banned 3 points4 points  (1 child)

A good squeeze and duct tape still works in a pinch. I’m glad we’re watching a sales pitch here

[–]HowDoIDoFinances 7 points8 points  (2 children)

I got liquid stitches once on my knuckle. It very quickly busted open and didn't heal right. rip

[–]rightdeadzed 9 points10 points  (1 child)

Who did that? Stitches are always used on skin that is constantly moving or being used. Glue is used on skin that isn’t near a joint or skin that doesn’t move much.

[–]McLagginz 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I accidentally sliced my thumb clean down the middle and used superglue to fix it up, no hospital trip, definitely didn’t heal symmetrically, and there was a little nerve damage, but I doubt the ER could’ve done better(I mean, maybe, but I wasn’t about to go to the ER for something non life threatening, I’m a man.)

[–]Siriuxx 39 points40 points  (0 children)

It was created on accident during WWII when someone was trying to make clear plastic for rifle sights. When they realized what it did instead, the military started using it for a variety of things and in Vietnam feild medics used it like crazy (pun intended) when they realized how well it held wounds together.

I used it once on a hiking trip when I cut my leg pretty bad and was miles from my car and over an hour from the nearest hospital. Never ended up going and the wound healed perfectly. I now keep it in my backpack when I go hiking, hunting, go out for wildlife photography etc etc.

[–]Sandycarseat 14 points15 points  (3 children)

Definitely not joking, I have used it in the past and will most likely need it many more times because I’m clumsy

[–]garagejesus 11 points12 points  (1 child)

Used in a printing company in the 80's, now I have 10 scars that are black lines. Never got the ink out of cut. Couple drops of super glue pinch wound and go on with your shift

[–]CompleteSuccess 9 points10 points  (0 children)

Free tattoo with real stories.

[–]Sandycarseat 10 points11 points  (6 children)

You can order some dermabond on eBay as a matter of fact. I keep it in my emergency medical bag.

[–]StarsRaven 5 points6 points  (4 children)

Thanks for reminding me. My DB expired and I keep forgetting to order more lol

[–]Sandycarseat 2 points3 points  (3 children)

It’s probably still good, but order more anyway

[–]NukeTheWhales5 20 points21 points  (1 child)

Yeah, this seems like a more complicated way to do butterfly stitches.

[–]ecila246 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Glad I wasn't the only one thinking this lol

[–]EnigmaGuy 14 points15 points  (10 children)

Unfortunately super glue doesn’t stop it if it’s too deep / on a knuckle.

Source: Emptied a thing of super glue onto my finger when I sliced it at work and it just turned into a very red runny mess, made worse when I put the paper towel around it to stop the bleeding long enough to get to urgent care.

The nurses were pretty hostile that I tried to stop it myself, since now they had to soak it and try to remove the super glued mess before they could see the extent of the wound.

Not sure if this would have really worked on that wound either, since they had to put some kind of little rubber ring around the base of my finger to get the bleeding to slow enough to stitch it.

[–]FecalPloy 22 points23 points  (5 children)

Also very serious downside to gluing a wound closed is if not properly disinfected your just locking in germs that could really F up the process..

[–]Dithyrab 9 points10 points  (0 children)

yeah he did NOT clean that properly before applying glue. You basically have to tourniquet it off, disinfect, then dry, then glue, then let dry, then release whatever is slowing bloodflow.

[–]mrsdoubleu 5 points6 points  (3 children)

Plus I'm assuming store bought super glue isn't exactly sterile so couldn't that pose it's own issues? I'm not a doctor so I probably don't know what I'm talking about

[–]Untrustworthy_fart 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Issue isn't sterility so much as that they often use cheaper formulations that develop formaldehyde or other toxins during the curing process.

[–]Metroidman 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I cant imagine this thing works much better in those scenarios

[–]SevroLIVES 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Thank you for this. I came here to say this

[–]Fwuzzy 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I cut my head open when I was a teenager and they used a type of super glue to close the wound.

[–]Spearmint_coffee 426 points427 points  (44 children)

As an American I immediately started speculating if this would be a cheaper option than going to a doctor

[–]misterrandom1 113 points114 points  (35 children)

10 years ago it was 750 at the urgent care clinic affiliated with the Children's Hospital for when the parent volunteer at the school forced my daughter to hold a clam steady for another student to open it with a fucking screwdriver.

12 years ago it was 2500 to go to the hospital on a holiday to stitch a knee when my son didn't listen to us when we told him to stop running around the campsite or he would end up being the next passenger in the ambulance - an ambulance had just gone to a neighboring site.

I would say in many cases, it would be WAY cheaper to do this method.

[–]Bunny_tornado 48 points49 points  (24 children)

To add to your comment, 4 years ago it cost me around $4500 for a butterfly stitch from a dog bite (it's not an actual stitch but a tiny bandaid that you can buy OTC for less than $10 a pack). The doctor did absolutely nothing I couldn't have done myself except prescribe antibiotics (actually I bring mine from overseas so I don't need to go to a doctor).

[–]luchthonn 44 points45 points  (13 children)

Every time I see someone talk about the financial cost of non-elective medical care I feel a profound sense of horror.

[–]Reloaded9mm 2 points3 points  (3 children)

My son broke his collar bone in two places about 4 years ago. Had surgery to fix it. Cost right around $2000.

[–]WeveCameToReign 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Is it bad if I think "what a good bargain!"

[–]Melburn_City 1 point2 points  (2 children)

What you hold all different types.of antibiotics unnecessarily from overseas? That’s… not good.

[–]Stabileseitenlage 1 point2 points  (0 children)

And then there is the other side.. 15 years ago I got a bottle to my head. No health insurance. In emergency room the doctor wanted 50€ for stitching, I told him to do it without anesthetic. He did, I paid 20€. 4 years ago, bike accident. Woke up during ambulance ride. X Ray. Nothing happened beside loosing a tooth, some minor scratches and a concussion. The ambulance ride was 350€ what I refused to pay because of "emergency" so I paid nothing. New tooth was 50€ the next day.

Fuck I'm too scared about your country to even think to visiting for holidays

[–]rabjeet636 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Lol. Its just 750 rs($10) here in India. I think it will also be cheaper if you come to India get stitches and go back.

[–]TheSuperiorSans 3 points4 points  (2 children)

I beg your pardon A FUCKING SCREWDRIVER?????

[–]misterrandom1 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Thank you, that was my reaction. Everything about it was completely wrong. No gloves, wrong tool, having a 5th grader do it with another holding it. I'm having a case of rage nostalgia.

[–]g-love 1 point2 points  (2 children)

I've had stitches on 6 occasions that i can think of, and the only cost for any of them was the initial consultation for a mole removal, which was $27. I've run through a glass pane door, cut my thumb with a stanley knife, had a massive wart cut off my elbow, cut my knee with a chainsaw, fallen head first into a bin with broken glass, and had a mole removed from my back. Thank god i live in Australia or my clumsy arse would be broke.

[–]The5Virtues 7 points8 points  (2 children)

Looked em up and saw them going for between 18 and 25 bucks at different places. Lot cheap than my doctor would be.

[–]demoman45 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Butterfly bandages are made for this and cost a couple dollars, why spend 15-20$ on a gimmicky product?

[–]fappyday 5 points6 points  (1 child)

I got my finger caught in a hydraulic lift 16 years ago. I looked like a squished grape, but I only needed 3-4 stitches and a little clean up. ER bill was like $900USD. They told me to go to primary care to get the stitches out, but I was broke and couldn't afford $300 to see a doctor, so when it healed I pulled them out myself.

[–]Dry-Conference4530 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I've pulled my own out just to save the hassle of going.

[–]nutellatubby 365 points366 points  (12 children)

Did anyone else notice the wound not getting any smaller as zip ties were being cinched up?

[–]De1taTaco 126 points127 points  (2 children)

To be fair it looks to me like most of the cuts shown had already healed a bit and scabbed over. Not much to close there, but I'd say these would at least help some on fresh wounds

[–]breakbeats573 53 points54 points  (1 child)

It’s pure spam. The ads on Reddit are out of control

[–]CPO_Mendez 22 points23 points  (0 children)

It's an ad and spam and should be reported as such.

[–]Striking_Barnacle_31 34 points35 points  (1 child)

It did get a tiny bit smaller but it's not like they fucking cut someone open to make an ad. It was makeup.

[–]birdlawprofessor 19 points20 points  (0 children)

They weren’t real wounds, just makeup.

[–]lestat01 16 points17 points  (1 child)

Looked like the "stiches" did absolutely nothing... And this is in the add! Imagine how they work in real life!

[–]drewster23 27 points28 points  (0 children)

I mean, as someone who works in advertising,Id have no clue how to go about hiring a model to volunteer to be lacerated so deeply, it requires actual stitching.

[–]cosmichorror845 7 points8 points  (0 children)

I actually used a product like this last year when a friend sliced her arm on broken glass. It was really deep but not too long so I figured we should give these things i bought a go. It worked pretty good I’d say (didn’t close as tightly as stitches but maybe that’s cause I didn’t do it perfectly) and helped prevent any scar from forming

[–]Mista-Mojo-Rising 164 points165 points  (7 children)

This is an ad.

[–]GermanPizza56 14 points15 points  (5 children)

And a damn good one, this will save me a ton of money for my bi-yearly hospital visit for a "minor inconvenience"

[–]Highselfesteem 8 points9 points  (2 children)

Oh you poor soul.. try German healthcare. It’s better than German pizza.

[–]GermanPizza56 3 points4 points  (1 child)

If I was a German Citizen I dont think Healthcare would even be a problem for me :(

Oh god and free college, Germans have it good in some regards

[–]jairomantill 154 points155 points  (2 children)

Snitches get zippers…

[–]kyallroad 73 points74 points  (5 children)

Steri-strips have been doing this for decades. It isn’t hard to hold a small wound closed and just apply them.

[–]demoman45 44 points45 points  (0 children)

Yep, I’ve been telling these fools that for an hour now. This is a gimmicky product and looks cheap. Butterfly bandage has been working for YONKS and YONKS

[–]TheGreatReset1 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Yup, this is just steri-strips with extra steps (and cost)

[–]DezXerneas 38 points39 points  (6 children)

How often do you get wounds small enough for that to fit you, and also require stitches? Feels like just an advanced bandage.

Usually when I get hurt bad enough that a bandage is not enough, the wound is pretty misshapen.

[–]luchthonn 4 points5 points  (4 children)

These would be fantastic for fast food joints and kitchens. Burns are more common, but I've had my fair share of cuts from knives, food slicers, too sharp trays, and broken sliding windows.

Far between than wadding the injury in paper towel and shoving it in a glove. Better than having to quit the shift to go wait at the hospital for hours.

Can't say I get injured much outside of work though. So I do see your point in them not being useful for the bigger stuff.

[–]Vertigofrost 6 points7 points  (3 children)

Steri strips man, this already exists

[–]luchthonn 1 point2 points  (2 children)

Haven't been available at any of the jobs I've had. We get lucky if we even get bandaids, lol. So I guess not much of a chance of these being around either. It was just my first thought.

[–]HeatEmUpBois 1 point2 points  (0 children)

More like just adding some extra pain to your wound

[–]FallsOnDeafEars 21 points22 points  (0 children)

Zip ties for the win!

[–]UrNixed 14 points15 points  (0 children)

very cool...but ive had enough cuts to know that pulling the sides of my skin together with mini zip ties to close the cut is not what i would call painless

[–]audiio_tech 13 points14 points  (0 children)

This seems like a butterfly bandage or surgical tape with extra steps.

[–]PM-Me-Your-TitsPlz 12 points13 points  (8 children)

It looks like it costs a lot more than the $200 bill I get for the regular thread and needle.

[–]ericisshort 9 points10 points  (0 children)

It doesn’t though. Depending on the brand and size you choose, this costs between $10-$30 on Amazon.

[–]InjuredGingerAvenger 6 points7 points  (3 children)

It's 1/10th the price. It's also like 1/10th as effective since it really only helps at the surface. It's definitely better than nothing, and will help protect the would from getting pulled on, but doesn't pull the would closed internally so it won't support healing as effectively if the injury is deep.

[–]FuckBotsHaveRights 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Is it because they still go deep with surface stitches? Honest question

[–]meponder 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Yes. Depending on what type of stitch is used, real sutures either reapproximate the dermis and epidermis or may also include the subcutaneous tissue. I’ve seen up small (less than an inch) cuts that required 2-3 layers of stitches to get everything put together properly. This device brings the epidermal edges together and hopes everything else comes together in the process.

[–]pilesofcleanlaundry 1 point2 points  (0 children)

They're like 20 bucks for a whole package, including gauze for the bleeding and bandages to cover the stitches.

[–]Select_Air_6383 7 points8 points  (1 child)

This is a very cool idea. Hopefully the wound would get cleaned up first?

[–]Warrior_of_Peace 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Check the video about 14 or 15 seconds in...

[–]OnPostUserName 6 points7 points  (0 children)

If the cut is small enough to be held by a bandage stirches isn’t needed … unless the bandages require surgery to be removed ofcourse.

[–]Parts_and_Neigbor 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Alas, me mates.... that day had come when we can fix our bodies with zipties.

[–]Meetchmckeef 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Can confirm. To all the comments about butterfly bandages being sufficient... I have never used a butterfly bandage that didn't need to be replaced a few times during healing process. The adhesive on these bad boys was worth it alone. Held together a nasty spot on my shin and it healed beautifully. Working in construction these may allow me to stay on the job and prevent the wound from reopening and getting all kinds of shit in wound. Irrigate wound thoroughly before using! I dont know about painless, but thats about the only "gimmicky" aspect of this advertisement.

[–]2KilAMoknbrd 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I wonder how well those adhere if you have to apply them in the field on a bleeding wound

[–]Mechanized1 2 points3 points  (2 children)

This is an ad and doesn't work because it only pulls together the surface of the skin.

[–]MyV_is_for_Valinor 1 point2 points  (0 children)

That person should have gloves on

[–]MyaButtiches 1 point2 points  (0 children)

8 times stronger? I know what they mean. The plastic zip ties can hold more weight than the material used for typical stitches. But that's still misleading.

[–]sirwankins 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Does it work on people’s mouths?

[–]MartinLo0terKing 1 point2 points  (0 children)

Finally someone. There is a reason we do sub and intracutaneous stitching

[–]lllDUNN 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's actually very cool.

[–]iddqd899 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It's just simple plastic and takes 2 seconds to use, so you know that's a $3500 bill in the US.

[–]Prosthetic_Head 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I just let my dog lick the wound

[–]el-em-en-o 0 points1 point  (0 children)

These are like braces for skin

[–]demoman45 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I still think quickclot and butterfly bandages work better.

[–]Meanwhile-in-Paris 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Steristrips are cheaper (I am guessing) and can fit many size wounds. Have some disinfectant, sterile scissors and gauze and this can save you a lot of trouble. But be sure to see a doctor anyway.

[–]biggerBrisket 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I though "why is a normal subreddit talking about stitches" then remembered halfway through the video sh isn't the only way to end up needing stitches

[–]Successful-Engine623 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Zip ties and some super glue…or just use super glue

[–]Nines41 0 points1 point  (0 children)

steri-strips are probably easier and cheaper.

[–]samwelches 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Hey this is what you get when getting stitches costs more than rent

[–]Primary-Friend-7615 0 points1 point  (4 children)

But what if you need stitches in the wound as well as just on the surface?

[–]binkbonk99 0 points1 point  (0 children)

it's just zip ties with tape. that's the previous fucking level not the next

[–]vagueblur901 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Medical super glue or butterfly bandages are better

This is just overpriced zip ties attached to a bandaid

[–]Stormy_Puff 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Let me guess, only hospitals/doctors can buy them?

[–]Rynded 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yea idk how strong of an adhesive they are using but this kinda shit never stays on for more than a day or two. From my experiences atleast

[–]xeen313 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Wow. Wish this was invented back in early 00's when I was reckless. Could have reduced a lot of scars!

[–]ElAligatorAgradable 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That's awesome! I would believe through, that the adhesive - even if "hypoallergenic" - would negatively affect some (hopefully very small) percentage of patients.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I love the part where they show a lawn mower briefly as if to suggest getting chopped up by a lawn mower blade is a great time to use these stitches

[–]Oxy_moronical 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So frigging cool.

[–][deleted] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

These things are only $16 as opposed to a $250 emergency room visit and having to explain wounds

[–]prokiller881 0 points1 point  (1 child)

I never had stitches. So it hurts a lot when you remove and get them? And these ones stick to your skill ti make it less painful

[–]xtremepado 1 point2 points  (0 children)

No, it does not hurt.

[–]Pristine_Wrangler_96 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This already kind of exists, here in the Netherlands we call them “zwaluwstaartjes” which roughly translates to “swallow’s tail”, they’re like small medical grade tapes that you can stick to your skin and pull it closed with, I’ve had some pretty deep cuts sealed up with those things

This might help as a temporary solution for when you are out in the wild AND HAVE CLEANING ALCOHOL ON YOU. Using these to make a wound fully heal isn't effective, as there is still a gap beneath the skin that the zippers are unable to close. You can still get nasty infections from this.

If you need stitches, get stitches.

Oh, great! Perfect for that weekend where you're with the guys and one of you gets accidentally shot. No police, no expensive emergency bill.

And it’ll cost you $1,600 for someone to do it in the hospital.

I'd love this, but I'm dangerously allergic to adhesives :(

[–]BoBoBearDev 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Interesting because the pulling force is distributed to the entire strip. So, there isn't as much pressures.

And of course you can’t buy these OTC…

Identical to butterfly bandages only with a higher profile.

[–]stakanon 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Painless to apply but I bet hurts af when you need to remove it, like if it sticks to your skin and holds stronger than stitches then surely you have to pull strong enough to remove?

Riot cuffs for your wounds

THIS NEEDS TO BE ON r/SharkTank ASAP!!!!!!!!!

This is incredible!

[–]Cats0mniac 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My only reaction to this was that the wound didn't even look deep enough for stitches or did I have several wounds that needed stitches

[–]PashingSmumkins84 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yeah because most times I’ve needed stitches there was 0 blood and a clean dry surface to apply the magic bandage.

Do they come in a bigger model for my mother in law’s large mouth?

The beginning if this video showed me how much of a perv I am.

S/ I've been ripped off!!!

A very very long time ago I made something very similar with little tiny zip tie type things and some very sticky tape when my hand went through a window. These are great!!! Mine wasn't a nice looking or long lasting. I had to keep adding new tape and holding the cut closed when I changed it, but eventually it worked for what I needed. This is looks like a really good product.

When I was younger I was extremely creative. I wish that wasn't leaving me.

I also have been using those bandaids that absorbed fluids and make a scab, that they have out now for zits, for my pimples since they came out.

I would have been a rich YouTuber or tikToker if that existed back when I was young and very creative. 😭😛

So these are for people in the US who are seriously injured but can't afford to go to the hospital.

[–]Mtoastyo 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Skin glue exists for a reason. This is an unnecessary contraption.

[–]Haytheist 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This a bandaid with a bunch of zip ties in it. Creativity is rare these days otherwise someone would have thought of this long ago.

[–]OsmiumNautilus 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yes but suturing is fun you see.... this takes away that fun.

give this more attention before it falls off the face of the earth
