LAST WEEK’S TRIVIA ANSWER
I trace my history back to 1941, when an orthopedic surgeon founded me in order to produce devices to better help his patients. In the 1940s, I introduced turning frames to help safely turn patients with back injuries, and patented an oscillating saw that could remove casts without harming skin. I bought a robotic surgical equipment company in 2013. Today, based in Kalamazoo, Michigan, with a market value recently near $80 billion and more than 36,000 employees, I’m a global medical technology giant. I hold close to 8,000 patents, and I rake in more than $14 billion annually. Who am I? (Answer: Stryker)
