Creating a Low Tension Healing Environment SutureSafe  bridges  and  supports  the  closure  of  surgical  inci-sions dynamically, allowing a cushion of skin movement while still pulling  the  wound  margins  together  with  gentle  appositional  traction.  By doing so, SutureSafe may help reduce surgical site dehiscence.SutureSafe   is   an   alternative   to   static   tape   for   areas   of   increased skin movement. It can be placed over top of sutures and staples. The Ripstop bridge limits extension of the silicone elastomer,  while  the  adhesive  fabric  tape  distributes  forces  across a large surface area.
