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

Open Up and Say “Aha!”
Where will you experience your “aha” moment? That moment of inspiration when you realize you have a great idea for how to make healthcare more efficient or safer. An innovation to make things work better, faster, smarter. Will it be at the patient’s bedside? In the OR? Perhaps inspiration will strike as you are walking into a patient’s home to deliver care. No matter where you are, capture that idea and we will do the rest.
Edison Nation Medical is searching for ideas for products, processes, or systems that improve the healthcare experience for patients, caregivers and professionals. So whether you are just beginning your day, grabbing a quick bite to eat between patients or catching up on emails at home, submit your ideas and our team of healthcare innovation experts will take it from there. If we agree that your idea has great potential, we will handle the design, engineering, prototyping, licensing, manufacturing, and product or procedure distribution. You simply sit back and follow your idea through the process on your dashboard.
This is an open category, which means you can submit your idea regardless of whether it is an idea to improve surgery or an idea to improve physical therapy!
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, and consider submitting a video to demonstrate your innovation. Be detailed, but 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.
