Eric Storne, Vice President of Marketing for ZipLine Medical stated, " We recognize the organizations's many accomplishments and support the efforts of the Patellofemoral Foundation as it is focused on education and research to benefit surgeons with appropriate knowledge and options to help patients."

ZipLine Medical offers a very unique and patented adhesive-based skin closure device that is available in four different sizes and is applicable to any size incision. The company has been producing and marketing the Zip devices for over three years in the US and worldwide. Several clinical studies have been published recently that show a reduction of complications or improvement in patient satisfaction with their device over standard skin closure options. ZipLine Medical received recognition at the recent AOSSM meeting in Colorado Springs as one of the Top 11 Sports Medicine Technology Awards for 2016.
