Abstract

This project’s goal was to determine whether our device idea could create a viable business. The electrocardiogram, a cardiovascular monitoring device, frequently becomes tangled, unorganized and less accessible to our end users. For a convenient set-up process, our device will solve these problems by allowing for the electrode leads to be wound up into the storage accessory, maintaining consistent organization, along with simultaneous sanitation. We accomplished this by researching proper information, validating our research with professionals, and conducting a feasibility analysis to determine commercialization potential. We concluded that our device would not create a viable business at its current state of functionality rather showing promise for a potential licensing deal.
