Fixing bones with a power drill? Less expensive and ingenious

Fixing bones with a power drill? It sounds terrifying, but thanks to an ingenious cover these household drills are now healing hospital patients in Uganda – at a tiny fraction of the cost

BBC – Being operated on with an ordinary power drill might not sound too appealing. But an ingenious cover makes hardware store drills safe for surgery – at a tiny fraction of the cost of specialist surgical drills.
In poorer countries, surgeons often have to rely on time-consuming manual drills for bone operations. By making power drills affordable, the sterile cover allows surgeons to operate faster and help more patients.
