Fort Lauderdale, FL – March 14, 2006 – PMD has obtained its fourth patent on its revolutionary, bionic device designed to treat severe urinary incontinence (UI) and several other severe medical conditions.
The patent contains 7 claims of uniqueness.
The patent further describes the first fully implanted (in any upper-vertebrae) electro-mechanical bionic device that is remotely-controlled and remotely-adjustable, which was designed to be used in the treatment of a number of medical diseases or conditions (including urinary and fecal incontinence). The patent is further indicated for a broad range of coverage and applications.
This patent is of particular relevance in that it describes a control box unit that is fully contained in a hermetically sealed casing, which contains a telemetry control system capable of making minute adjustments to the urethral valve, remotely.
The Company has applied for a number of additional patents on this invention, and expects to obtain substantial additional coverage for its device product. The Company has been continuously testing prototypes of the device in upper-vertebrae animals for over seven years under the direct supervision of the Company’s Medical Director, Dr. Victor Politano, one of the world’s foremost urologists and pioneer in the treatment of urinary incontinence.
