The Open Search - held twice a year in June and December - gives Insiders the opportunity to submit ideas from any product category.
It works just like our sponsor-specific Live Product Searches, except we’ll work with any consumer goods retailer or manufacturer in any mass-appeal category.Learn more about becoming an Insider

Patient gowns can usually be found among the top complaints of hospital patients. From the constant draft to the embarrassment of revealing a little too much to family and friends during your hospital stay, the design of the patient gown leaves much to be desired. Did you know the patient gown hasn’t changed much at all since the early 1900s? Edison Nation Medical is hoping to change that.
Edison Nation Medical is seeking innovations to the design of today’s hospital patient gown. In addition to discomfort, the current gown design can also lead to complications, such as surgical hypothermia. When submitting your ideas, please consider the needs of health care providers in addition to the patient. Make sure your gown is easy to clean (no Velcro!) and has a low production cost (keep in mind the average hospital gown retails for $2 – $3 per piece).
Reward: Advance & Royalties
Licensed ideas will receive a $2,500 minimum advance on 20 years percentage of sales or buyout. We split the licensing royalties 50/50 with you on the products that we select. Royalties vary based upon the product but we always earn industry-leading rates.
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.
