In 2020, Layco Medical Devices was established as a spin-off from the research group “Surgery for All” at TU Delft. Currently based in Amsterdam, the company has been steadily expanding and is currently in the research and development phase for two medical devices.
During her internship at a Kenyan referral hospital, Dieuwertje observed a discrepancy between the medical equipment that was available and the equipment that was needed for low- and middle-income countries. The devices that were available were primarily designed and manufactured for high-income countries, which made them costly, dependent on expendable materials, and difficult to maintain and repair.
Dieuwertje and her business partner Thom decided to address this issue and make medical devices accessible to all, everywhere. This led to the creation of LAYCO in 2020. Along with their team, they are constantly working to make a difference. They are located in Amsterdam Oost, and visitors are always welcome to drop by for a cup of coffee or tea.
Our Mission And Vision
At LAYCO Medical Devices, we specialize in simplifying complex medical issues through user-friendly devices. We believe that medical devices should be affordable and reusable, rather than disposable, in order to maximize their value while minimizing impact on the environment. We are constantly pushing boundaries and challenging the status quo in healthcare accessibility, and we strive to make a positive impact.
