The Arbutus Drill Cover enables surgeons to safely use a low-cost hardware drill within a clean surgical environment, allowing the use of a standard hardware drill in place of expensive $30,000 surgical drills. The device is autoclave sterilizable and reusable.
The Drill Cover has to date treated over 4,000 patients across a number of emerging markets as well as emergency relief situations, with resounding positive feedback from surgeons.
The robust surgical-grade textile, combined with a custom water-proof chuck adapter interface, maintains a completely sealed barrier between the non-sterile drill on the inside and the sterile surgical field outside.
Ongoing clinical, lab, and usability testing has demonstrated safety and efficacy on par with an expensive surgical drill, while significantly outperforming manual drills.
The Drill Cover brings cost-effective surgical power drills to places in need without compromising world-class quality or functionality.
