New US patent approval for Episurf Medical
Episurf Medical (NASDAQ: EPIS B) has received another Notice of Allowance from the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The patent, entitled “System, guide tools and design methods related thereto for performing osteochondral transplantation surgery in a joint”, is within the area of devices and processes to facilitate treatment of joint lesions with osteochondral grafts.
“This is a patent that shows how the company’s medical imaging technology can be applied to a broader range of devices than the Episealer® joint implants. 3D modelling, damage visualisation and individualised design here form the basis for a guide system developed for osteochondral transfer such as for example autograft and allograft surgery”, says Katarina Flodström, COO, Episurf Medical.
