The bone-knitting laser (also referred to as a knitter) was a specialized medical instrument used for repairing fractured bones. A viable alternative to using a knitter was the use of a splint. (TNG: "Contagion")

When a miniaturized Hikaru Sulu broke his leg in 2269 and the normal bone-knitting laser technology could not be used because of its large size, Dr. McCoy repaired Sulu's injury using a microscope laser instead. (TAS: "The Terratin Incident")
