Two Innovative Invention from aTurkish Doctor to Health Sector

Medicana Bahçelievler Hospital Cardiology Specialist Assoc. Dr. Ayhan Olcay brought two new inventions to the health sector with a team of entrepreneur academics.

Thanks to two inventions that won three awards at the Inventions for the Medical Sector and Patents Workshop of Istanbul International Invention Fair, both the duration of the brain surgery will be shortened and the multiple drug tablets can be reduced to a single dose.

Assoc. Dr. Ayhan Olcay gave the following information about the Policapr (Mobile Multiple Drug Merge Device), which was awarded the gold medal. “Patients with cardiovascular diseases, heart disease, HIV and tuberculosis-like diseases usually take 4 or more drugs. Taking them as different tablets at different times makes patients feel bad and reduces compliance rates. The Policapr device, that we produce the prototype, can reduce the patient’s multiple drug tablets to a single dose and this can be easily done by the patient, patient relatives, pharmacy, family physician or hospital. Thanks to Policapr, the concept of personal pharmacy will be improved.”
