“This cutting-edge facility provides a dynamic environment for innovation, collaboration, and growth, propelling us closer to our goal of revolutionising surgical education globally.”

The operations base is located near the company’s manufacturing hub, also in St Helens, to encourage collaboration between the research and development and manufacturing teams.

“We are delighted to support Inovus Medical’s occupation of the Glass Futures Centre of Excellence and witness their dedication to innovation and medical technology,” said St Helens councillor Kate Groucutt
