K Medical, INC (KMI) is developing innovative polymer-based wound closure solutions with indications including high skin tension locations that are easier for surgeons to apply and provide aesthetically superior results for patients. 

Compared to stitches and staples, Suture Glue is quick and easy to apply, causes no pain, and does not require a second removal procedure. Suture Glue outperforms other wound closure adhesives (Dermabond®, IndermilTM and Histoacryl®) by using a proprietary polymer that is more flexible, viscous and biocompatible, leading to easier application and better wound closure product is designed to allow the surrounding skin to bend and flex ensuring better wound closure and healing. This will expand clinical usage of adhesive wound closure products, as well as reducing costs through procedure time and follow-up suture removal.
