HSD assisted in developing a disposable suturing tool initiated by a grant from TEDCO to transfer and commercialize technology. Designed to be an inexpensive, disposable suturing tool that places sutures at regular intervals by means of a suturing guide. To place a stitch with this device, a surgeon simply places the fascia layer between the two arms of the device and squeezes the trigger. The device also protects the needle from accidentally puncturing the internal organs without the assistance of other currently used protective equipment. HSD designed, engineered and prototyped multiple concepts leading to a final working proof of concept for use in pre-clinical trials.
