Doctor’s product takes top prize in EIGERlab FastPitch competition

ROCKFORD — Trevor Gibbs has found a cure for the cluttered, cramped workspaces he and other anesthesiologists experience at work.

His product Anestand keeps cords, hoses, and other loose items near the operating table off the ground, organized and sanitary.

“It organizes the workspace,” said Gibbs, who works at Edward Hospital in Naperville. “We’re often working in very tight quarters.”
