Tuesday, September 20, 2016

AUCKLAND, New Zealand – The International Trade Commission plans to investigate certain sleep apnea devices manufactured by Fisher & Paykel, it announced Sept. 19. The investigation is in response to a complaint filed by ResMed in August seeking to ban imported products Simplus full face mask, Eson nasal mask and Eson 2 nasal mask, that it says infringe on various ResMed patents. That complaint came after Fisher & Paykel filed patent infringement proceedings against ResMed, saying that ResMed’s AirSense 10 and AirCurve10 range of flow generator products, its ClimateLineAir heated air tubing and its Swift LT and FX masks, infringe patents it holds.
