Zimmer Meshing Systems

Zimmer Biomet offers two different Skin Graft Mesher systems.

The Zimmer® Skin Graft Mesher is engineered to use a knife like cutting technique. This approach provides more expansion ratios and graft widths up to four inches.

Unlike the Zimmer® Skin Graft Mesher its unique cutter technology, the Meshgraft II Tissue Expansion System uses specific Dermacarriers II Skin Grafting Carriers to achieve different expansion ratios.

Common Zimmer Meshing System Features

While these systems have unique characteristics, they also share some common traits:

  • Multiple expansion ratios during a single procedure without multiple machines
  • Graft carriers provide reliable transport and meshing of a skin graft
  • Validated for manual and automated washing
  • Lubeless gears to ensure smooth performance, time after time
  • Durable, stainless-steel construction for years of consistent performance
  • Easy ratchet handle motion for smooth transport of graft carrier through the mesher

While these systems share useful features, each has its own set of unique characteristics.

Zimmer® Skin Graft Mesher

The Zimmer® Skin Graft Mesher is designed for simple operation while interchangeable cutters provide precision.

  • Five different expansion ratios (1:1, 1.5:1, 2:1, 3:1, and 4:1) provide patient specific results by promoting proper wound drainage and epithelialization for proper healing
  • Convenient hinge design allows cutters to be changed or removed quickly for easier use and cleaning
  • Built-in comb minimizes the chance of grafts sticking to and / or wrapping around the a cutter 
  • Disposable carriers guide large, small, or multiple grafts, and are available in 8" x 4" and 16" x 4" sizes

Meshgraft II Tissue Expansion System

The Meshgraft II Tissue Expansion System is easy to use with a permanent cutter and grooved carriers.

  • Four different expansion ratios available are: 1.5:1, 3:1, 6:1, and 9:1 when using Dermacarriers II Skin Graft Carriers
  • Dermacarriers II Skin Graft Carriers are 3" x 8"
  • The guidance plateau helps ensure a proper alignment of the Dermacarriers Graft Carrier
