Wound Closure with Stretching Device

Skin-stretching devices are used in order to close skin defects and they are designed to harness the viscoelastic properties of skin. This inherent elasticity of the skin can vary among species and individual animals, and it also depends on the body region, age and pathologic conditions affecting the cutaneous tissues.
