Dr. Provost has been involved with various patents since the early 1970’s. In the 1970’s he worked on the insulin pump, the portable dialysis machine, and received a patent for the re-sealable cereal box top. He is associated with multiple patents ranging from mechanical devices, dental products, medical devices and medical software products. He has always donated his time and money to help others. For two years he was the Chairman of the March of Dimes Walkathon for the state of Utah, and also served as Chairman for the American Diabetes Association’s Walk America fund raiser.
Dr. Provost has helped over 200 individuals through the patent process by helping with prototype construction, and proof of concept analysis. After the passing of his 17 year old son Dusty, he has dedicated his life to supporting and helping individuals and institutions develop new ideas. The passing of his son led to his most recent patent the Illuminated Infusion Line.
Dr. Provost, along with his wife Donna, and his daughter Emma, started Teen’s Kickin Cancer, a youth leadership organization that raised money to help pediatric cancer patients and their families. Approximately five years ago Dr. Provost founded the Innovation Guidance and Solutions Center at Utah Tech University in St. George, Utah. He is presently the Founder and Director of that organization and has helped students, faculty, and community members file over 195 patents.
