When it comes to tactical medicine, Israel is a world leader and has been responsible for no end of simple but highly effective devices from the Israeli Bandage to the Injured Personnel Carrier (IPC) and more.

This time, Israel’s brand new “Top Closure” is “zipping up” serious combat wounds.

Invented by an Israeli plastic surgeon, this device allows EMS and pararescue personnel to temporarily close a gaping wound swiftly and effectively. “When trying to close a wound with sutures, we apply high tension to the skin,” he says. “With TopClosure we can spread the tension on the skin about 100,000 times higher than we could do before.”
