My Projects

Projects Saving Wildlife

My goal is to develop unique custom made veterinary medical devices aimed at improving the surgical outcomes and the heath for wildlife and other animals that larger companies do not find “cost effective” to assist with. Most of my projects are targeted to specific animals or small groups of animals.

The design, engineering and development is mainly self funded. And so, often I am limited in my capacity to help since the process is time consuming and often expensive. But I wish I could do more.

YOU can help too. With extra financial assistance, I could provide my veterinarians with many more beneficial, unique devices that they need to make the lives of their animals better.

My Projects

The following devices are some of the unique, surgical and lifesaving products I have developed, or am still developing.

Micro Skeletal Fixation Pins

(In Development)

Micro Skeletal Fixation Pins

These external fixation pins were engineered for the broken bones of the smallest birds and animals. Featuring unique antibacterial and strength properties.

Custom Made Pelvic Implant

Custom Made Pelvic Implant

This TPO pelvic implant was designed and engineered to expand the pelvic cavity of a Sun Bear to reduce her daily pain of passing faeces.

 

Fragment Grasping Kocher Forceps

Fragment Grasping Kocher Forceps

Re-engineered Kocher forceps to allow orthopaedic surgeons manipulate and grasp small fragments, implants and instruments without deforming the forceps.

Micro Laryngoscope Blades

(In Development)

Micro Laryngoscope Blades

Developed for small bird and animal endotracheal tubing and oral examination.

Micro Orthopaedic Pin Chuck

(In Development)

Micro Orthopaedic Pin Chuck

This pin chuck was designed to increase the control and accuracy for the insertion of micro pins and wires for small animal orthopaedics.

Mini Orthopaedic Hand Chuck

Mini Orthopaedic Hand Chuck

This hand chuck was designed to increase the control and accuracy for the insertion of micro pins and wires for small animal orthopaedics.

Extra Long Hypodermic Needles - Humane Whale Euthanasia

Extra Long Hypodermic Needles - Humane Whale Euthanasia

These needles were designed for humane euthanasia of beached whales that can not be put back to sea due to their size or poor health.

High Friction External Skeletal Fixation Connecting Rods

Extra Large Needle & PGA Suture Kits

Extra Large Needle & PGA Suture Kits

Initially developed for Grey Nurse Shark surgery, these suture kits are extra strong and large to reduce deformation of the needle, and feature dissolvable sutures.
