The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Inc. has published a manuscript written by Drs. David Kazmer and Felmont Eaves, Brijjit™ Force Modulating Tissue Bridges for Reduction of Tension and Scar: Finite Element and Image Analysis of Pre-Clinical Incisional and Non-Incisional Models.
The manuscript, published in the April 2018 issue highlights force modulating tissue bridges (FMTB) as a new class of combined wound closure and scar reduction devices designed to optimize the tension milieu of the healing wound.
“In the longitudinal study, tension reduction on the order of 30% was maintained over the treatment period of 10 days…”
In conclusion: “FMTBs provide wounds while simultaneously modulating skin tension and thus have the potential to improve scar appearance.”
