Please give more details of new technical application area:
This product is used in bio-medical field especially for orthopedic surgery.
Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Guwahati
Affiliated Ministry: Ministry of Education
Type of technology development: Indigenous
Does the technology help in replacing any import items currently
procured from outside India?
Does the technology have export potential? Yes
Category of Technology developed: Immediate Deployment
Stage of Development: Prototype Level
Please describe in detail including the TRL Level:
The CAD model of the device is completed. Computational analysis of the different components of the device and its assembly are under process. A 3D printed working model to be made subject to improvements in design and analysis alongside exploring different manufacturing options. TRL level -4 (Small Scale prototyping)


Applications: Bone marrow extraction from a single site is conducted currently using traditional manual spooning which is repetitive timeconsuming and less efficient as a small amount is extracted out at a time and multiple scooping is required to obtain an amount about 100cc Operate on multiple sites to obtain 100cc of bone marrow The time consuming current methods of extracting bone marrow also increases the surgical site infection SSI rate It has been reported that for every 15 min 30 min and 60 min increase in the surgery time, there is a 13, 17, and 37 increased chances of SSI
Advantages: Designed to operate at single site at the distal or proximal end of Femur or Tibia and the product is reusable Simple mechanism used to maximize the extraction from single site Advantages such as minimally invasive bulk quantity retrieval of bone marrow and user friendliness that is easy to assemble or dissemble and clean Single insertion of the tool to extract sufficient amount of bone marrow which reduces health and safety risks Minimum harvest time reduces related infections Storage space within the tool

It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
