Ziptek Adds International Patents for Suture Button

By Julie A. Vetalice

Ziptek’s ZipE resorbable locking suture button, which works like a Zip-tie and supports soft tissue healing by transferring the forces to the repair tissue over time, recently received patent allowances in China and Japan.

The company expects continued allowances to the portfolio of 20 issued patents in 11 countries, which adds to its ever-expanding international protection. Ziptek now has issued patents in Australia, China, Columbia, France, Germany, Japan, Mexico, New Zealand, Singapore, the United Kingdom and the United States. Additional countries will be added in the near future.
