Almost any new medical technology for consideration by an investor will insist on safety and efficacy approval by a government regulator like the United States FDA. Furthermore they will insist on an assessment of whether the intellectual property (IP) that the innovation operates in is not conflicting with other IP claims. For this milestone you will complete a brief assessment of how the innovation would be classified by the US FDA as well as generate a very cursory patent search for conflicting IP claims using common and free tools on the Internet such as Google patent search and the US Patent and Trademark office web site. The assessment should be 2-3 to pages in length.
