These patents bolster the current family of PoNS patents protecting various forms of physical and cognitive therapy combinations with both skin and oral cavity stimulation using the PoNS device or any equivalent neurostimulation device.
The company has now been issued or has allowed 40 U.S. and international patents covering the medical method, design and device features associated with the PoNS device therapy.
“Further strengthening our intellectual property with these two new medical method patents is a very meaningful development for the company. I would like to thank the team at Proskauer Rose LLP for their support and effort in helping us secure our sizable patent portfolio,” said company CEO, Philippe Deschamps.
