HEMIGARD Interlock has one piece that is partially covered with loops and a second piece with hooks facing down from a protruding strap.
Each piece has a trailing area that stretches under low tension to prevent shear injury and blistering.
How it works
The HEMIGARD Interlock is used to close acute surgical wounds of moderate tension (up to 5lbs of force).
Clean and thoroughly DRY the area into which the HEMIGARD Interlock strips will be adhered.
Place the loop and hook pieces so that the hooks and loops are facing the wound.
Pull the strap to adjust closure tension and interlock the hooks onto the loops.
Use one HEMIGARD Interlock or HEMIGARD ASRD for every inch of wound closure. HEMIGARD Interlock can be used to support the wound for up to three weeks after surgery.
