Archetype BioMedical is based in London, Ontario, Canada. Our primary focus is the development of sophisticated medical simulators. Our clients span the globe, including China, Japan, South Korea, Norway, Great Britain, the US and Canada. Customers include companies like Edwards Life Sciences, GE Healthcare, Siemens and Toshiba, and researchers/clinicians at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Beth Israel Hospital (Boston, USA) and King’s College Hospital (London, UK). Our products are also in use at Western University (London, Canada) and University College (London, UK).

In 2017, Archetype Medical was awarded a BURST grant to develop and commercialize a workflow for creating patient specific, dynamic mitral valve models. With these models we will be able to change the way surgeons train and prepare for complex mitral valve surgeries.
