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!


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.

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.
