Otherwise, we suggest them to make computer animated 3D virtual working  model to show feature and usability of the product  to your perspective buyer of your invention.

Contact  perspective companies :-

You need to list down companies who are specializing in selling or and manufacturing identical product like yours. Also you can send them your marketing presentation and try to guess their interest level in your invention.

You can either go for licensing agreement (preferably non exclusive licensing agreement ) or else  you can go for assignment of invention to interested party, wherein you can define monetary  terms in form of one time royalty fee or profit percentage of product sell or in some cases both.

We strongly recommend to get in touch with specialize patent agent or patent attorney to make right legal agreement document.
