INDUSTRY: Healthcare, Medical

Arbutus Medical is a surgical equipment company developing innovative devices for use in developing countries, disaster relief, and other low-resource environments. Their flagship product, The Arbutus Drill Cover, has been used in over 12,000 surgeries across 20+ countries. See how the Arbutus Drill Cover is helping aid orthopedic surgery across the world.

Arbutus Medical was born out of collaboration between Biomedical Engineers at the University of British Columbia and surgeons from Canada and Uganda. The graduate program, Engineers in Scrubs, helped to pair a group of graduate students, now the founders of Arbutus Medical, with the task of aiding surgery in Uganda.
