Medical Device Patent Lawyer Turning Your Medical Device Innovation into Intellectual Property

Intellectual property is one of the most important aspects of any business. It is what allows businesses to protect their ideas and innovations, and it is what allows them to make money by licensing those ideas to other companies. For a business to license an idea, however, they need to have the idea patented. This is where patent attorneys come in. A patent attorney can help you patent your invention, which will then allow you to negotiate with potential licensees.

Medical devices are constantly evolving and becoming more sophisticated. For companies to keep up with the latest technology, they need to be able to innovate and create new products. However, innovation is not easy or cheap. It takes a lot of time and money to develop a new product, and even more time and money to get it patented.

Patenting a medical device is a complex process, and it is important to have an experienced patent attorney on your side. Patent attorneys can help you navigate the complex world of patent law, and they can help you get your invention patented in a timely and efficient manner.

Contact us today at (512) 649-1046 to schedule a strategic patent needs assessment.

What is a Medical Device Patent?

A medical device patent is a type of patent that covers a new and improved medical device. To get a medical device patent, you must first file a patent application with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO). The USPTO will then review your application and determine whether or not your invention is eligible for a patent.

The United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) will issue you a patent if your invention is patented. Once you’ve received a granted patent, you’ll enjoy an exclusive right to commercialize, produce, and utilize your idea for 20 years from the filing date. Your creation will enter the public domain after 20 years unless you renew your patent.

There are a wide variety of medical devices on the market, and new ones are being developed all the time. Some common types of medical devices include:

  • pacemakers
  • defibrillators
  • artificial joints
  • artificial hearts
  • stents
  • implants
  • prosthetics
  • surgical tools

If you have invented a new and improved medical device, you may be eligible for a medical device patent. Contact Thompson Patent Law today to speak with an experienced patent attorney about your invention.

Can Getting a Patent for a New Medical Device Help Me?

If you have a new medical device, you may be wondering if getting a patent can help you. The answer is that it depends. If your device is truly unique and has the potential to make a significant impact on healthcare, then a patent can definitely help you. However, if your device is not unique or does not have the potential to make a significant impact, then a patent may not be worth your time and money.

There are many factors to consider when deciding whether or not to pursue a patent for your new medical device. In addition to the uniqueness and potential impact, you also need to consider the cost of pursuing a patent and whether or not you have the resources to do so. You also need to think about whether or not you are willing to risk disclosing or offering your invention for sale before you first protect your intellectual property.  For most medical innovations, the initial protection can take the form of at least a quick prior art search, a freedom-to-operate check, and/or a lower-cost provisional patent application.

If you are still undecided, it is a good idea to speak with a patent attorney or agent who can help you evaluate your invention and make a decision about whether or not pursuing a patent is right for you. Thompson Patent Law can be there for you.

Is Hiring a Medical Device Patent Lawyer Beneficial?

  • They can help you navigate the complex world of patents and intellectual property.
  • They can help you protect your inventions from being copied or reverse-engineered by competitors.
  • They can help you negotiate licenses and royalty agreements with potential partners.
  • They can help you raise funding from investors by highlighting the potential of your invention.

Hiring a medical device patent lawyer is an important decision that should not be taken lightly. However, the benefits far outweigh the costs. If you have a great invention, make sure to hire a great patent lawyer to help you protect it.

why our clients choose thompson patent law

Craige and his team did a fantastic job with my provisional patent application. He asked all the right questions to help me flesh out my idea, and helped me to expand it into areas I never would’ve considered. I highly recommend reading his book, and working with Thompson Patent Law.

That critical translation from the technical engineer into the legal minds in the legal language and legal experience. And that handoff is really, really critical and that’s one of the things that I absolutely love about working with you guys.

If you have an idea that is innovative you better get the protections in place, and also you guided me in that… Its so simple the way you’re really orchestrating the process. I didn’t have that much experience but I feel throughout this entire trip that we’ve been on, I’ve gained so much experience from it, that I can help others guide them to you.

I’ve had a very good experience working with Thompson law Offices over the past couple of years. They are very good at what they do. Currently they’ve obtained a patent for me in a reasonable time frame, and are pursuing yet another one. Not only are they very good, but they are cognizant of the financial aspects of this process, always taking into consideration the cost to their customers. I wouldn’t hesitate to continue to work with them on future projects.
