Becoming A Successful Inventor Takes Legwork

REDWOOD FALLS, Minn. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Inventing a successful product takes a lot of legwork.

The 51st Annual Minnesota Inventors Congress is returning to Redwood Falls, Minnesota, on June 13-14, featuring hundreds of inventors displaying their latest innovative products to the public.

According to Executive Director Deb Hess, getting your invention off the ground isn’t about being strange, but being simple and helping yourself.

Inventions that have hit the ground running at the Inventors Congress include a sterilizer designed by a woman to clean her prosthetic leg, a portable IV designed by a man for his son who needed to get around with the IV in his arm, and the Quad Cane – a four-pronged cane for the disabled which does millions of dollars in sales.

While the original model for the golf cart, life jacket, and shopping cart also got rolling at the Inventors Congress, Hess says aspiring inventors shouldn’t expect instant success.

She says, “If you get bad feedback here, that should be a sign to go back to the drawing board.”
