He created Orthopedic Frame Company Inc. in 1946 to produce and sell his ideas, despite the fact that his hospital bed had yet to receive a patent. Homer Stryker resigned from medicine in 1964, and his company changed its name from the ‘Orthopedic Frame Company’ to the ‘Stryker Corporation.’ Since then, the oscillating saw from Stryker has been the tool of choice for removing casts.
