The device is designed to support patients with acute respiratory failure, including COVID-19
RA'ANANA, Israel, Sept. 15, 2021
RA'ANANA, Israel, Sept. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Inspira Technologies OXY B.H.N. Ltd ("Inspira Technologies" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: IINN) (NASDAQ: IINNW), a specialty medical device company engaged in the research, development, manufacturing, and marketing of proprietary respiratory support technologies, announced today that it has submitted a patent application to the Israeli Patent Office for a supportive device to be utilized with its ART device.
The supportive device is aimed to allow for a safe treatment and mobilization of cannulated patients. This is expected to provide the medical staff more flexibility in implementing treatment procedures as well as to enable the safe transfer of patients within and between hospitals and medical centers.
The device can also be potentially utilized in the treatment of thousands of patients being treated each year by Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) as well as additional treatments requiring patient cannulation, including treatments for COVID-19, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), pneumonia and acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS).
Dagi Ben-Noon, Inspira's CEO, stated: "This revolutionary supportive device has the potential to redefine treatment procedures and is expected to improve patient outcomes. The Company chose to file the patent in the Israeli Patent Office since it is recognized as a leading International Search Authority. The route chosen by the Company makes it possible to obtain a patent in less than a year (assuming the examiner determines that this is an innovative product). Israel's introductory law applies to the entire world, as well as to bilateral agreements with countries around the world that will accept Israeli exams for registration".
Inspira Technologies is developing an early extracorporeal respiratory support system, the ART device, which functions as an "artificial lung". The ART device is intended to allow patients to remain awake during treatment, while potentially minimizing the use of highly invasive, risky and costly mechanical ventilation systems.
