Idea Name: Lithomatic
Slogan: Smarter Treatment of Urinary Stones
Startup Domain: Health Care
Abstract:
    Indigenous Design and Fabrication of a cost-effective, safe and smart intra-corporeal pneumatic lithotripter - a device which is used to treat the urinary stone disease without surgical incisions.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    -Urinary stone disease afflicts 1 out of every 7 Pakistanis -Open surgery needed in 1% of cases yet applied on 80%. -Modern techniques remain out of reach, of high cost -Huge foreign exchange spent on imports -No maintenance for imported units -27 million urinary stone patients in Pakistan
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   -1096 hospitals, 8200 health centers, 92 medical colleges. -197 urologists. 50 are added every year. -2 billion rupee industry in Pakistan -Mammoth export potential to Afro-Asian stone belt covering 20+ countries. -400 billion rupee market in Middle East, UAE, Oman and Saudi Arabia.
How will the solution works
    The principle is based on momentum theorem derived from the "action and reaction" law. The three main parts are control unit, handpiece and probe. Compressed air is used to generate ballistic energy in the handpiece. A bullet inside the handpiece, guided with high precision, is accelerated to a high speed by means of a precisely controlled burst of compressed air. When the bullet hits the probe installed in the handpiece, the energy is transferred to the stone which fragments it.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    -No local competitors -International:Indian(low price, low quality) and Swiss (high price, high quality). -Lithomatic has low price yet high quality and provision of after sales and spare parts. -New features:Image enhancement, Stone tracking, database, security tags, touch screen,backup battery
