  • Description
    In this book, the author shares his experiences, anecdotes, insights and failures while inventing medical devices in India over the last five years. The idea is to give entrepreneurs (clinicians, engineers, designers, business professionals) a realistic expectation of the time, money, co-ordination and teamwork required to develop a new medical device in India. This book is specially recommended for Indian healthcare professionals who are passionate about solving unmet clinical challenges by inventing new medical devices, but are not sure of how to go about taking their ideas from a concept stage to an actual product. Entrepreneurs from engineering, design and business backgrounds will also find this book useful, as it illustrates ways to engage with doctors, and gives a comprehensive perspective of the path from ideation to commercialization.

    UNPUTDOWNABLE!!

    An amazing book which explained everything that one needs to know about inventing a medical device and how to go through the proper channels and how to review each stage.
    Just exceptional writing which can be interpreted by anyone from any field.
    Sort of like a Chetan Bhagat for boring science books!!!
    I found it very interesting because when I wanted to do something with an invention in my college days, i did not know how to follow it up!
    This is my guide now..
    Thank you Dr.Jagdish C for th...

    Instructive ! Potential industry game changer

    What i liked best about the book is the almost autobiographical nature. The author seems to have tried and tested a series of approaches to narrow down on some sustainable model of innovation. HUGE PLUS - He seems to want the reader to grasp this nuance!

    SECOND: Author is very specific on lots of the little things which often take all the time and don't have a right and wrong answer. The advice here can help kick start an entrepreneurial career in medical device building for India.

    Just li...

    Perfect book to represent "Make in India"

    You can ask for nothing more when you want to make medical devices in India. There was a lack of a starter guide in this space and everyone has been trying their own strategies to make new medical devices but no one thought of sharing their experience. The author here shares his failures, learnings, challenges and most importantly his experience in trying to address and mitigate these. It gives an entrepreneur like me a very good idea of things to keep in mind while inventing a new medical de...

    Accurate, precise and to the point!!

    This book shares a realistic perspective of what it is like to invent medical devices in India. The anecdotes ground the reader and the information in the chapters helps keep very realistic expectations if you set out to invent medical devices. I have never read any book that gives information such as quotations, expenditures for different stages of device development and vendor/salary/agreement details in such a straightforward manner. I really appreciate the author sharing such information ...

    Insider's know-How of inventing medical devices

    I always thought there is a gap between people who face the problems on daily basis, but are acclimatized to the conditions, who probably don't have the inclination to think about the problems as problems which can be solved, and there are people who can solve the problem if they only knew what the problem is.
    Dr. Jagdish Chaturvedi has created a very useful resource ~ Inventing Medical Devices. It fulfills the demand of knowledge and what works & what doesn't as Know how perfectly for wantr...

    A Great Perspective!

    It's a great read, short, to the point yet not just facts without fun.
    It gives you an over all understanding of what is happening in innovation of medical devices and details if you want to do some inventing of your own!

    I'd recommend it to all my medical colleagues, there's a lot we're missing out on by not getting involved in the field.Dr. Jagadish took the opportunity and was amazing in sharing his experience. I personally really enjoyed it!

    Read Before Innovating

    This is a really good book for anyone interested in developing healthcare products in India. The illustrations and language make it easy to understand even for people not in the clinical field. As a biomedical engineer working in India I can really relate to many of the challenges listed here. Dr. Jagdish's wealth of experience and willingness to share not just successes but failures and problems as well makes this one of the most honest narratives in Indian MedTech. This book is inspirationa...
