Another milestone in the growing Medical Templates IP Portfolio
Following our first success in patenting the general application process of our Cube Navigation System, we are excited to announce that we have been granted patent protection of another innovation to make CT-image guided interventions easier, safer and more efficient!
In a remarkably quick process, the German Patent and Trade Mark Office (Deutsches Patent- und Markenamt) has approved our filing for a next-generation needle navigation concept – to be marketed as Access Cube – further securing our IP and underscoring the innovative nature of our system. The patent covers our novel way of removing the grid of the upper and lower navigation plates around an inserted needle or thin instrument, therefore allowing full access to the intervention field after successful puncture of the target.
With larger holes to accommodate a variety of thin instruments and improved usability, the Access Cube will expand the range of interventions which can be improved using our navigation system, and as always, help physicians #navigatewithease!
Congratulations to the Medical Templates team for this accomplishment!
