Details

Tittle:
An educational device in cervical smear taking
Summary:
A UK inventor offers patent rights for sale on a device that simulates cervical smear taking including the describing of normal and pathological conditions. The device shortens the learning curve for medical students and decreases the number of unnecessary examination of patients. Medical device and teaching aid manufacturers are sought, in gynaecology in particular.
Description:
An East of England nurse has invented and filed for patent protection for an educational device in cervical smear taking.
The function of the device is two-fold. Firstly, there is a rotating wheel carrying images of normal vs various abnormal appearences of a cervix (see the Picture). This makes it easier for medical students to memorise and later practise the describing of the appearance. This in turn is essential for the cytologist or other consultant involved in the diagnosis.
Secondly, the images are obscured by an aperture mimicking the labia. The student needs to practice using a speculum to gain a better view. The device can be used as an individual training tool or in a group setting.
Currently, the learning process involves reading books and practising on real patients. The device intends to shorten the learning curve so that fewer patients are subjected to unnecessary examination.
The inventor seeks medical device manufacturers to sell the patent.
Advantages and Innovations:
Somewhat similar ideas have been put forward in a slightly different setting, for the purpose of training obstaetrics. There seems to be nothing similar on the market.
The advantage of the device is a shortened learning curve for students and fewer unnecessary examinations for patients.
