RUA Medical, originally Culzean Medical Devices Ltd, was formed by David Richmond in 2004, when he brought together experts from a variety of science and engineering backgrounds. Our new name, RUA, is the shortened version of Ruadh (Gaelic for red), a nod to David’s ginger hair and his nickname during his teenage years.
In 2020 the company was acquired by Aortech International plc to form the RUA Life Sciences plc group, who are focussed on using a proprietary Elast-Eon™ technology platform (a biocompatible, bio-stable, long-term implantable polyurethane).
We are, as we always have been, a trusted and leading partner for improving patient outcomes through medical device and textile solutions. Acting globally but based in Scotland, we are continuation of its reputation for innovation in medicine.
