The Problem

Orthopaedic drills can cost well over $30,000, impacting the healthcare system and your practice. 

Busy hospitals may own dozens of these surgical drills, costing them a fortune,  while many smaller centers face delays throughout the day due to long re-processing time between cases.

Our Solution

The DrillCover Hex is a sterilizable, reusable, and fully-sealed Level 4 barrier that transforms a select hardware drill into an orthopaedic power tool.

We have worked with Dewalt to carefully select a drill which matches the speed, torque, and ergonomics of a surgical drill to provide the perfect cost-saving alternative. 

With multiple DrillCovers you can perform back-to-back cases by simply replacing the cover between patients.
