When it comes to stitches and staples, you want quick and painless! However, not every doctor or nurse is an expert at suturing and the last thing you need is to have the job redone. AIM is a device that’s been developed to help physicians regardless of their proficiency.
Using a simple arrangement of lights, the top-mounted display indicates the correct device placement, pressure and space between sutures. Ideal for emergency situations where there is a risk of blood loss or open wound contamination, it allows for near instantaneous closure. Better yet, it features quick-replace cartridges for efficiency and to prevent patient discomfort.
The AIM-suture is a Winner of the K-Design Award for the year 2017.
