I met medical device inventor Peter Harris yesterday. He invented LapProx™, a device for Laparoscopic Gastric Plication.
Peter taught me as much about laparoscopy as one can learn over a lunch at the Mongolian Grill.
I’ll try to hit the highlights, here in bullet-point fashion.
Now if only someone would fund and make it.
I’m no expert, but this seems like a good idea to me. The invention is protected by nine patents. Do you know a company or investor who would help realize its potential?
If so, check out Peter’s LinkedIn profile and this 19-page presentation. (It contains his contact information.)
And last, here’s a 85-second video of the concept. It’s not for the queasy: It shows proof-of-feasibility in a live pig surgery at the 35-second mark.
Hey, what’re you doing on Thursday?
If you have anything to do with regulatory submissions, I sure hope your answer is “attending your free webinar with Rob Packard.”
As always, if you can’t make the live event, I’ll email you the recordings and slides afterward.
Hey, what’re you doing on January 29?
If you have anything to do with marketing, sales, or business development, I sure hope your answer is “attending 10x for Sales and Marketing in Orlando with you, Joe.”
I hope to complete the agenda by this time next week but you can still apply to speak or sponsor it.
For that matter, you can apply to speak for our May event, the 10x Medical Device Conference, and/or our October event, 10x for Design and Manufacturing, too.
We record and professionally edit the sessions. You can use the footage however you see fit. I can promise: Your marketing team will love you for it.

And this one, just in: Project Manager, Medical Laser Product Development for Aerolase in Tarrytown, NY. I met their Director of Strategy at an investment conference a few years back; I was very impressed with the concept. (I would have invested, but Beth said no.)
