Suturing Device, Helicopter Hoist Stabilizer Make it to Finals of National Collegiate Inventors Competition
One started as a capstone design project to simplify a surgical procedure. The other grew out of experience with one of the trickiest parts of military medical airlifts.
Now both are among the 10 finalists in the Collegiate Inventors Competition organized by the National Inventors Hall of Fame. Two teams of Georgia Tech students and recent graduates will present their ideas in October to a panel of Hall of Fame inductees and officials from the United States Patent and Trademark Office.
