SmartVision® patent approved in USA
NACKA, Sweden – July 19, 2011
Medical Vision AB celebrates the approval of the SmartVision® patent (US 7,981,073 B2) in USA. The innovation is implemented in all pump systems manufactured by Medical Vision and one of the main competitive advantages compared to other pumps on the market.
The technology, branded as SmartVision®, is a revolutionary solution to visibility problems during endoscopic surgery performed in conjunction with a fluid management system. When SmartVision® is in use, the pump system detects substances that have influence on the visibility during surgery. The SmartVision® adjusts flow and pressure automatically in the operation site so that full visibility is maintained. The Medical Vision owned technology was invented by Mr. Sven Milton, Dr. Tomas Movin and Mr. Anders Möllstam in 2006 after extensive research, some of it in collaboration with Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden.
“We hope to explore this very useful technology further and implement it in products intended for other endoscopic markets in the near future”
says Ulf Wedin, CTO at Medical Vision.
The US patent belongs to a wider patent family that is globally filed and registered.
