Project Summary

Published by under Uncategorized

Across many offices, during oral surgeries a surgical technician may hold the patient’s jaw up not only to keep their airways open, but also to stabilize the patient’s head during the surgery. This practice is called chinning and is done by a surgical technician. Our goal is to develop a device that will comfortably support a patient’s jaw, allowing for greater stability, and thus will aid the surgeon during the procedure. Furthermore, our device would ensure that the patient’s airways are open, which is important as the patient’s safety is the priority. Finally, our device will allow for greater productivity in the operating room.
