DrillCover Hex System



Veterinarians perform surgery in challenging conditions and the market is increasingly price sensitive as competition increases. Equipping a clinic with moderately priced long lasting equipment can be difficult. 

  1. Surgical drills are expensive ($15,000+) for new vets and high volume clinics, while alternatives are either bulky, corded, non-sterile or unsafe.

  2. Fixing or replacing parts due to the wear and tear of harsh sterilisation on a surgical drill can be expensive and time consuming.

Because of these challenges, animals may wait longer for the surgery they desperately need or receive unsafe surgery that leads to other health complications.
