I did my research to indigenize and commercialize most commonly required medical devises in pediatric surgery. I also commercialized them at a cost 20 times cheaper than the peers to make them affordable to every pediatric surgeon. The devices indigenized are flexible and rigid, articulating, and dual vision video laparoscopes [Figure 1]a, [Figure 1]b, [Figure 1]c, [Figure 1]d video procto-sigmoidoscope and esophagoscope, USB retractocam, rigid video bronchoscope and forceps [Figure 2]a, [Figure 2]b, [Figure 2]c, [Figure 2]d, USB laparocam, basic and deluxe model, LASER lithotripter and cautery, LED light cord, urodynamics and uroflowmetry machines, noninvasive vagal stimulation device and portable muscle stimulator. Patents were filed for the devises in Mumbai office to protect intellectual property. More than 100 commercialized innovations were sold in India and worldwide in the last 5 years with good customer satisfaction. The doctors who bought these products were contacted by email and by phone. 92% said that the product is excellent and 8% said that it falls in good category. 83% said that the product has dramatically reduced the risk of the procedure. I successfully surpassed a lot of challenges such as availability of spare parts, identifying personal and industries for outsourcing work, raising capital, product commercialization and marketing. Most of these inventions are based on “Chip on the Tip” technology where a video camera with LEDs is placed at the tip of the devise. Hence, no rod lenses are required, and there is no image loss and the picture quality is phenomenal and colors are natural compared to the rod lens-based telescopes. Since the costly rod lenses are not required, there is a great reduction in the cost of the devises. Another reason for a reduced cost is that only the camera system is imported and remaining spare parts are made in India. The endoscopic devises are a unique merger of the endo-camera, LED lights, telescope, and instrumentation channel into a single assembly, hence is extremely compact and easy to assemble. Most of the devises have a USB output and through a USB cable they are connected to a variety of display devises such as android phone, tab, and desktop and laptop computers, and the images and videos are seen as well as recorded on a free software installed on the display devises. I am conducting a multicenter clinical trial on devises in various centers. I was successful in indigenizing most medical devises needed for pediatric surgeons. Despite low cost, my devises have the same or superior quality of the conventional medical devises. This project is likely to have a great positive impact in healthcare of India and other third world countries.
