According to a statement, minor cuts and lacerations can be safely, quickly, and effectively treated at home with Clozex Medical innovative wound closures, reducing the risk of exposure to COVID-19 and other contagions.
“Stay safe and keep our medical professionals focused on the increasing needs of so many patients right now,” the press release reads. Clozex provides a non-threatening solution for the treatment of cuts and lacerations.
“Statistics are showing us that as many as 75% of emergency room (ER) visits are potentially preventable visits, and the third biggest reason for an ER visit is due to laceration.
“We, of course, want everyone to use common sense and make good health decisions,” states Clozex president and CEO John Michael Streithorst, “but this is not a good time to be waiting in an emergency room for urgent care on a wound that can be safely closed at home, using Clozex non-invasive, needleless wound closures. We are especially concerned with the young and elderly.
“A parent can sanitise a cut and have a Clozex Medical Closure on their child’s wound in minutes without an anxiety-laden ride and wait for medical attention from already overburdened staff. An older or compromised person, with thin skin or mobility issues, need not be exposed and put through the discomfort of a crowded waiting room. A small accident in the kitchen, workshop, or with kids at play, can be safely treated in minutes.”
Clozex closures’ intuitive approach was developed with the input of leading surgeons and is designed to keep skin closures simple. With a simple pulling motion, the interlaced design of Clozex precisely aligns the skin edges for a secure, and aesthetically pleasing closure. Clozex is FDA approved for over-the-counter use and is available in healthcare facilities across the USA.
