As the world’s leading manufacturer of oscilloscopes, Tektronix has always been at the forefront of electronics innovation and that is why it made sense for Tektronix to team up with Edison National Medical - health care innovator and medical device incubator.
Tektronix is donating electronic equipment to Edison National Medical, a health care innovator and medical device incubator, for the company’s Charlotte, N.C. headquarters AND will also be featured on “Everyday Edisons,” a PBS realty television show for inventors.
Edison Nation Medical creates effective, efficient and safer health care through innovation, providing an easy way for new health care and medical product ideas come to life. Anyone in the industry is encouraged to submit a medical product idea including doctors, nurses, technicians, entrepreneurs, patients, caregivers, etc. Once an idea is submitted an in-depth analysis will be conducted along with potential commercialization by an expert medical product development and licensing expert. And the best part? Edison National Medical will split royalty profits with any successful inventor!
A range of Tektronix instrumentation, including the innovative MDO4000 mixed domain oscilloscope, will be used to further health care innovation and also help the “Everyday Edisons” development team bring ideas to life. In addition to an MDO4000, the Tektronix equipment donation includes an MSO3000 series mixed signal oscilloscope, two DPO3000 series oscilloscopes, an AFG2000 series function generator, a DMM4040 digital multimeter and other supporting technologies.
Oscilloscopes are critical tools for developing electronic products ranging from satellites to Smartphones. Edison National Medical will use the oscilloscope in the product development lab as engineers develop a variety of new inventions.
’Everyday Edisons’ provides fascinating insight into the skills and determination it takes to transform an idea into a product, while Edison Nation Medical allows everyday inventors to transform health care in a positive way. We are truly excited to be involved with these unique players in the world of innovation and invention,” said Dave Farrell, general manager, Mainstream Oscilloscopes, Tektronix.
