Medical Device Innovation: Translating Ideas into Reality
Clinical Trials Laparoscopic Instrument Handle XrayTo3D wins awards
Clinicians test the device, after necessary approvals (depending on class of risk), leading to certification or further improvements.

1. Establish device classification (based on risk and duration of contact).

2. Prepare detailed protocol of proposed testing, and get ethical clearance.

3. Conduct the tests in partnership with a clinical research organization.

4. Collect results, prepare reports and submit to certification authority.

5. Provide clarifications, if needed, to the authority.

Modular and ergonomic Laparoscopic instrument handle is an answer to surgeons' need for making the instruments less stressful while providing more maneuverability and control. It is expected to be more universal in nature and suitable for fitting a variety of surgical instruments used in laparoscopy.
Development team includes Baisampayan Saha, IDC, IIT Bombay, guided by expert surgeons and faculty.
XrayTo3D technology developed by Vikas Karade, which reconstructs 3D models of bone from their 2D X-ray images, was recognized by 'Gandhian Young Technological Innovation Award' in 2014, and is among the top 10 innovations in India for President's Scholar In-Residence Program 2015.
This innovation has been in the media.
