e-Design MD: A web portal for collaborative design of medical devices

Project status: Complete

Thrust area: Enabling Information Infrastructure

Research team: James Antaki

Several websites and technologies exist that touch upon some of the features and functions of the project, however none have yet combined the tools into one convenient package for collaboration and truly innovative product development. Social networking sites bring people in contact with one another, but do not address the problems associated with collaboration on a project from locations around the world. We believe our custom tools for product design facilitate idea sharing while protecting the inventorís property rights.
