According to a recent report from the Global Industry Analysts, Inc., the worldwide market for needles and syringes is projected to reach $12.1 billion by 2015. This projected growth is attributed to several factors, including the growing population of elderly patients, a projected increase in the number of cases of diabetes, and the growing awareness of infectious diseases, which has led to a renewed push to educate health care providers on safe injection practices.
Edison Nation Medical is seeking innovations that improve the safety and quality of needles and syringes. This includes improvements in design, materials and methods of use to enhance the experience of end-users, including health care professionals and patients.
We ask for well-communicated ideas. This includes filling out our easy-to-use submission form to the best of your ability. Upload images, sketches and any other media that support your idea. Tell us your story. We even encourage you to create a video demonstrating your innovation. Don’t worry. We don’t expect you to break out your inner Spielberg. Please keep videos to less than 2 minutes.
Your submission should be unique and protectable (we love to see patented ideas but that isn’t required).
Each idea costs just $25 ($20 for Edison Nation Medical Insiders) to submit. Click here for more details on Innovation Searches.
Is my idea secure?
Yes! Every idea that is submitted to Edison Nation remains private. If your idea is selected to be presented to a partner, we have strict NDAs in place. Your intellectual property is extremely important to us.
If my idea is selected, what do I get?
If your idea is selected for licensing, we will remain in contact with you and our partner from the moment the deal is signed until it is ready for the marketplace. Our team negotiates competitive royalty structures and all licensing revenues are split 50/50 with you, the original inventor.
Why do I have to pay $25?
$25 is a nominal fee to help offset the costs Edison Nation takes on to review each idea that's submitted. It is a one-time cost. If your idea is selected for licensing, we will navigate the road to commercialization -- all at no cost to you. If you are an Edison Nation Insider, the submission fee is only $20!
What do I need to submit?
We'll review all ideas, whether it's a sketch on a napkin or a prototyped invention. You don't need a patent to submit an idea to Edison Nation.
