The path to growth

Baat Medical was founded in 1999 by Gert Nijenbanning after finishing his PhD thesis on scoliosis correction. In the first period BAAT provided general engineering services for the medical devices market. Soon after the start, Arthur Aalsma joined the company and from that time on we specialized in orthopaedic product development.

Over the years our clients asked to fill in larger parts of the development process and as a result BAAT has grown into a recognized full-service specialist in product development for the orthopaedic market across Europe. We received an annex II certification for class IIB products. The certification is applicable for implantable osteosynthesis devices and associated products.

Nowadays, we supply a complete service package, from Market Mapping & Concept, development of orthopaedic devices & instruments and supply chain management. The company has set up a state-of-the-art quality management system, warehouse, testing facilities and full engineering & design procedures are in place.

Amongst our customers are the large orthopaedic device houses. Still, we maintain our creative approach on new projects. Baat Medical developed over 40 devices.
