CEO, President & Co-Founder and Board of Director, Management Representative of Orpyx Medical Technologies Inc.
Dr. Breanne Everett is the CEO, President and Co-Founder of Orpyx® Medical Technologies Inc. (“Orpyx”), as well as a medical doctor and resident in plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Calgary. Seeing the burden that diabetic foot complications pose on both patients and the healthcare system, and with the goal of addressing these issues, she founded Orpyx to create meaningful, life-changing impacts with medical-grade wearable technologies. Orpyx has developed a proprietary, pressure sensor platform designed to empower patients to optimize the medical care of certain conditions, such as diabetic peripheral neuropathy. Beyond these immediate applications in diabetic foot monitoring and amputation prevention, the platform technology that Orpyx has developed can be leveraged to multiple applications in pressure sore prevention, athletic performance optimization, and injury prevention.
For her work at Orpyx, Dr. Everett was awarded the Governor General’s Innovation Award in 2016. She was named one of Avenue Magazine’s Top 40 Under 40, one of the Top 100 Most Powerful Women in Canada, and the University of Calgary’s Graduate of the Last Decade in 2014. She is a Loran National Scholar who serves as an active member of the Loran Alumni Community, and is a member of the Canadian Medical Association’s Joule Innovation Council, the Governor General Innovation Award Assessment Committee, and the Rideau Hall Innovation Advisory Council. Her pride and joy is her family, and when not working, she loves spending time with her husband and two sons.
