  • Patent number: 9662112
    Abstract: A system for wound closure has at least two closure elements. One closure element is detachably tethered to another closure element. Each closure element includes: a base member with an integral strap hingably connected to the base member, and a lock member slidably disposed on the strap and being lockable on the strap. Alternatively, the base member defines a plane and the strap being affixed to the base member at an angle to the plane. The system may further include a wound covering disposed between the straps and the wound. The wound covering may be a laminate having at least two layers; a first layer is a moisture impervious layer adapted to contain body heat, and a second hydrophilic layer is adapted to retain moisture.

  • Publication number: 20090062713
    Abstract: A bandage includes a wound treating section for collecting exudate from a wound, a hydrophobic layer attached to the wound treating section, and a liquid soluble adhesive positioned on the hydrophobic layer for removably adhering the bandage to a body part proximate the wound. The adhesive is dissolved upon contact with a liquid so that the bandage separates from the body part without painful sticking to the body part. The wound treating section can include a hydrocolloid or gauze pad.

  • Publication number: 20090053289
    Abstract: The present invention is a kit for use by a person to apply a daily treatment of medication and therapy to remove a corn or callus from the person's skin while providing maximum comfort to the person and minimal damage to healthy skin. In one embodiment, the kit comprises a box, an AM treatment system, and a PM treatment system for application at night. The AM treatment system comprises a plurality of AM foam bandages each having a medicated foam pad of hydrocolloid. The PM treatment system comprises a plurality of PM foam protective covers and a plurality of PM medicated non-woven patches impregnated with salicylic acid. The PM treatment system allows the person to remove a single PM medicated patch, trim it to fit the shape of the corn, and position it as desired over the corn. The person may then remove a single PM foam protective cover and apply it over the PM medicated patch, covering it completely, thereby limiting migration of the salicylic acid to healthy skin.

  • Patent number: 6559455
    Abstract: The present invention is an article of manufacture for use in alerting a person of exposure to an excessive amount of ultraviolet radiation. In one embodiment, the article of manufacture comprises a first strip comprising a backing member and first and second patches. Each of the first and second patches comprise an ultraviolet sensitive material releasably disposed upon the backing member. Each of the first and second patches comprise first and second outside edges and an inside edge. The first and second patches are nested and adjoined along said inside edges of the first and second patches, respectively. The ultraviolet sensitive material is adapted to change from a first color to a second color when exposed to an excessive amount of ultraviolet radiation. In operation, a person may remove the first and second patches from the backing member as desired and apply the patch to an area of exposed skin.
