Patent granted for Orpyx® technology in the United States
Orpyx Announces Issuance of New U.S. Patent for Wearable Technology
Calgary, AB, Canada, June 26, 2018 – Orpyx Medical Technologies Inc. announced today that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has awarded Orpyx an important patent related to the company’s foundation technology. The “Peripheral Sensory and Supersensory Replacement System” patent covers key inventions used in both Orpyx’s SurroSense Rx® product and future products, such as SurroGait Rx®, in the United States.
“We are thrilled to see our innovations recognized by the United States Patent and Trademark Office,” said Dr. Breanne Everett, CEO of Orpyx Medical Technologies Inc. “This patent strengthens our position as one of the key players and the continued growth of our intellectual property portfolio reinforces our leadership in sensor-based wound care solutions.”
The SurroSense Rx system is worn by the patient in the shoe, and a proprietary smartwatch provides real-time alerts when dangerous levels of pressure threaten to cause permanent damage to the patient’s tissue, thereby allowing him or her to offload that pressure proactively and avoid the development of pressure ulcers, and ultimately amputations. Additionally, data is uploaded to the cloud where patients, as well as practitioners and payers, can track and manage their condition over time.
About Orpyx Medical Technologies Inc.
One of the fastest growing trends in consumer electronics is wearable technology, which provides enormous capabilities and opportunities in the healthcare space. There has been exponential growth in wearable technologies over the past decade, but very little meaningful data is being produced. What if wearables could change lives?
Orpyx Medical Technologies Inc. (“Orpyx®”) is the global leader in mobile plantar pressure and IMU sensing technology, and related data analytics and machine learning. At Orpyx, our guiding philosophy is to use sensor-based technologies to measure the “kinesome” – a body of movement data, collected from various wearable sensors, which can be used to deduce insights about an individual’s activity and their health status over time. These insights can be used for real-time feedback, behavioral change, coaching, establishment of baseline fitness, and identification of changes in health and fitness status over time.
