Today, many surgeons still suture or staple more than they’d like to, as medical glues don’t live up to their requirements. Based in Germany and the US, Adhesys Medical seeks to change the game, introducing a one-ofits-kind range of polyurethane based glues. The technology is unique, as it combines ease of use, strength, flexibility and biodegradability. Two products are currently under development: The first has been designed for dermal use, to close a great variety of topical wounds faster, more accurately and with fewer complications. The Second is designated for use inside the body: either as an adhesive, to seal areas of leakage or re-attach tissue, or as a hemostat, to stop (even arterial) bleeding. Founded in 2013, but based on a technology which had been developed since 2007, the VCbacked start-up expanded to the USA in 2015 and is now in the process of preparing their product approval applications in Europe and overseas. It is the team’s vision to bring their wound sealants into every Emergency Room, Operating Room and soldier’s medical pack, to save lives, radically enhance surgical procedures and improve patient comfort.
