BOA-type system used in surgery - (very graphic!)

I don't know if anyone else here might find this interesting, but I sure do. There is a surgical device that functions similarly to the BOA systems we use in our boots that closes open wounds. Maybe some of you have medical interests.

Caution, not for the squeamish!

You can forward to 3:30 in the vid if you want to cut to the chase.

That's actually what Boa was originally invented for.

That is a massive gap to close. A lesson to Diabetics: If you eat like a pig you'll lose your feet.
