Students from Georgia Tech won the People’s Choice Award at the ACC InVenture competition..
Four Georgia Tech students who improved a medical device to protect patients and doctors won $5,000 Friday night during the ACC InVenture Prize, an annual undergraduate entrepreneurship competition. The students invented the CauteryGuard, which adds a retractable tip to current electrocautery devices. Their design eliminates the risk of burns from the device’s exposed tip and prevents the chance of fires in operating rooms caused by an exposed tip coming into contact with flammable materials. The device won the People Choice Award, which went to the fans’ favorite invention.
