2006 "Modern Marvels 'Invent Now' Challenge Semi-Finalist"
On February 14, 2006, the History Channel and Invent Now, Inc., a division of the National Inventor's Hall of Fame Foundation, notified
Dr David E. Flinchbaugh (IEEE Orlando Section Fellow Member) that the UroCycler/Advanced Bladder Management System had been selected from over 4,200 entries as one of the top 25 semi-finalists in the Modern Marvels Invent Now Challenge. "Our judges had a particularly difficult time selecting the semi-finalists from among the many worthy submissions, but yours clearly rose to the top." Their product exhibitions appeared in Los Angeles, Chicago, Boston, and the National Inventors Hall of Fame in Akron, OH. On May 24, 2006 the Awards Reception and recognition ceremonies were held at Vanderbilt Hall in Grand Central Station, New York City. This was an exciting event with officials from the U. S. Patent & Trademark Office, a major co-sponsor, along with representatives from Time, Life, Scientific American, Popular Science, Popular Mechanics, various newspapers, and other technology-oriented popular media. Two other sophisticated medical systems (a laser and a stent) invented by surgeons also received recognition at this multi-disciplined event. A small photo of the ABMS appeared on P. 6 of the June 2, 2006 edition of Time Magazine.
