The 'AIM' suture device is a concept that gives healthcare professionals a simple way to close a wound without having to rely on their freehand abilities. The 'AIM' works by offering a light-guided operation that lines up the sutures appropriately to ensure that they aren't incorrectly placed, which could create complications like a loss of pressure and improper closure.

The AIM suture device is a design concept by Ji-hyeon Choo and Sun-ouk Jin, and identifies how healthcare is being outfitted with equipment that is far more streamlined and automated than ever. This acknowledges the shift towards increased efficiency, while also making it possible for healthcare professionals to conduct procedures in a quicker manner, and to take on more patients in less time.
