LAYCO Medical Devices

We design and sell affordable high quality medical devices without disposables

According to research by the Lancet Commission on Global Surgery five billion people lack access to safe, affordable surgical and anaesthesia care when needed.

It is our mission at LAYCO to make medical devices available for the billions*.”

*Billions of people



The cost of acquiring a medical device, particularly a complex device, is usually only the tip of the financial iceberg. Costs of accessory options, years of warranty, logistics of delivery, installation procedures and recurrent costs for maintenance, spare parts, consumables, reagents for diagnostic kits, and training can amount to more than 80% of the total cost of a device.


Healthcare generates 5% of global annual emissions – the equivalent of 514 coal power plants. Surgery is the biggest offender within the healthcare system with heavy reliance on consumables.


Most medical equipment used in low resource settings is imported from industrialised countries. About 70% of the more complex devices do not function when they reach their destination in developing countries.



Medical devices by LAYCO are simple in design and developed for their intended use. Re-usability lowers the cost per use significantly compared to single-use alternatives.

Fully reusable and sustainable

Easy to clean and reusable parts to reduce the burden on the environment and reliance on the supply chain


A basic set of skills are required and learning how to use our devices is easy to learn through available training material.
