A group of Georgia Tech students and recent graduates will compete in the Collegiate Inventors Competition taking place in Washington, D.C., next month.

Alexander Bills, Dev Mandavia, Lucas Muller, and Cassidy Wang make up the Neuraline team that will participate as undergraduate finalists in the event on Friday, Nov. 16.

The group’s technology can improve the accuracy of epidural delivery by helping physicians identify a promising injection site using electrical properties and composition of the body. According to Neuraline — now known as Ethos Medical — about 3 million women annually in the U.S. receive anesthesia in the spine, known as an epidural, during labor; about one in eight cases result in complications because of incorrect injection placement.

The Ethos Medical team — which is also part of CREATE-X — previously presented its work to representatives at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida, and took third place at the Design by Biomedical Undergraduate Teams (DEBUT) Challenge earlier this year.

The team is also up for the Collegiate Inventors Competition's People's Choice award — voting closes Friday, Nov. 16.

Finalists will present to judges from the National Inventors Hall of Fame and U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. See a full list of undergraduate and graduate finalists.
