Sterile Skin Stapler


Close wounds without sutures

It seems like a gruesome concept but you can buy a skin stapler on Amazon that’s in a little sterile package. Normal people are not good at suturing but if you want to close a wound, a person with very little experience can actually close that wound back up with the skin stapler. It forms the staple as it pushes it into your skin in a pattern that doesn’t rip your skin. You start at one end of the wound and close it up slowly.

There’s lots of YouTube videos. You can practice on an orange at first.
