I'm an engineer type, just not a design, or draft table kind. I've had this idea for a wheelchair upgrade that's been burning a hole in the side of my head for the past two months but I just don't know what direction I should take it.
Are those on-line patent checks reliable to see whether the technology is already spoken for?
Are those on-line DYI kits any good?
Is it worth inquiring with a patent attorney?
Speak to a friendly DME guy who up to date with the latest wheelchair technology, or trade show, etc.
Any comments are appreciated.
