The goal of this project was to analyze the feasibility of commercializing a newly patented ergonomic surgical scalpel. In order to achieve this, we collected data, performed a feasibility analysis, and provided recommendations. We evaluated four areas: the medical device market, manufacturing, consumer research, and intellectual property. We concluded that this product would not be viable for commercialization as a stand-alone product. Alternative methods to commercialization may be required in order to generate future success if this product reaches market.
