ingeniería biomecánica y diseño de dispositivos médicos. En el 2015 inventó el “Quickstitch” un dispositivo que crea suturas de calidad de cirujano tan rápido como una grapadora de piel quirúrgica ahorrando tiempo, dinero y riesgo en la sala de operaciones. Después de esto fundó su propia compañía, y fue presentado en el conocido programa de tv de la cadena CNBC “Make Me A Millionaire Inventor”.
Giovanni Sanchez was born to Ecuadorean parents. Giovanni is senior mechanical engineering student at the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Arts, a highly competitive engineering school in the East Village of NYC. He specializes in biomechanical engineering and design for medical devices while also holding leadership positions in professional societies and social organizations. Originally from Jericho, Long Island, Giovanni acquired his interest for design in high school where he took engineering classes sponsored by Rochester Institute of Technology. The classes were part of a program called Project Lead the Way and were created to develop early interest in engineering.
Giovanni is most recognized for his invention Quickstitch, the semiautomatic skin stitcher. Quickstitch, originally known as Sutureself, is a device that creates surgeon quality sutures as fast as a surgical skin stapler saving time, money, and risk in the operating room. Work on Quickstitch began in 2015, the summer after his freshman year. Ever since he started his own company, Spario, Giovanni has been featured on CNBC’s “Make Me A Millionaire Inventor,” received pro-bono law services, won finalist in numerous student design competitions, and interviewed with Ycombinator, “the world’s most powerful startup accelerator.”
Currently, Giovanni is continuing work on Quickstitch, finishing up his senior year, and applying for YCombinator’s 2018 winter session.
