Boneguard was established in the
1990’s with the primary purpose of developing patient-oriented
innovations and seeing them through as finished products for use
in the field of orthopedics.
Few devices developed for use in
the care of the orthopedic patient are developed by physicians;
and many a times fully developed products are presented to
physicians for testing and clinical trials. Innovations desired by
physicians in this field sometimes do not make it to the market
and are frequently left undeveloped.
Since its inception, product innovations focused on the need of
the end-user – the patient, have been successfully introduced to
the market. These innovations range from simple concepts to
complex devices for use in the care of orthopedic injuries.
Boneguard was established in
the 1990's by Olarewaju "Lare" Oladipo, MD, FRCS(Ed), FRCS(Glas),
an orthopedist with a background in Orthopedic Engineering
(MSc., University of Cardiff, Wales). This
established as a result of his interest in product
innovations, and a number of the products are based on
inventions developed during his routine encounters with patients.
Since its inception, Boneguard has become an
name in the orthopedic product marketplace.
