Implantica AG (publ), an emerging and fast growing med-tech company that is pioneering innovative solutions to treat chronic health conditions with smart implants, today announces that it has concluded an extensive eHealth patent filing that exceeded 25,000 pages, the culmination of a full year's work of Implantica's team and patent attorneys. The filing encompasses 59 new patent applications focused on Implantica's eHealth platform and a broad range of applications.
This comprehensive filing represents a considerable strengthening and term-extension of Implantica's patent protection. The patent applications will provide fundamental coverage for the eHealth platform in general and extend the scope and term of the patent protection for the pipeline products. This landmark filing will - in the years to come - be divided into several hundred individual patent applications, building patent protection for the platform and the pipeline products as the development progresses. The largest eHealth application comprised 1,950 pages and consisted of 596 pages of drawings, which is approximately 100-fold the size of a standard patent. During 2021, Implantica validated 824 issued patents in total in various countries.
"Implantica has designed its eHealth platform to be in the forefront of the eHealth revolution with the possibility to change treatment on distance thereby saving costs for society. With this impressive one-year patent work, we will have the possibility to maintain that eHealth advantage in the marketplace or license technology to other companies. Such systematic and advanced patent work builds the foundation of a successful long-term business. We are building the platform for an incredible business potential going forward and changing the treatment landscape for patients."
Peter Forsell, CEO of Implantica
