Solving a Hundred Year Old Problem
By Zinovy Royzen
Each year in the U.S. there are over 1,500 incidents of surgical sponges being left inside patients after surgery resulting in deterioration of the health of the patients or even their deaths. The incidents also financially impact healthcare providers by massive legal and medical cost. Application of TRIZ resulted in the development of a reliable and inexpensive solution to the problem known for more than 100 years.
