Lawsuit update: ResMed vs. Fisher & Paykel

Tuesday, October 3, 2017

SAN DIEGO – A German court has suspended ResMed’s intellectual property proceedings against Fisher & Paykel Healthcare, according to news reports. The court proceedings had been on hold while both companies waited for the outcome of a decision by the European Patent Office. ResMed filed patent infringement actions against F&P in U.S., German and New Zealand courts, as well as the U.S. International Trade Commission, in 2016. It claims F&P’s Simplus full-face mask, Eson nasal mask and Eson 2 nasal mask violate patented technology. F&P has also filed actions against ResMed, claiming its AirSense 10 and AirCurve10 range of flow generator products, its ClimateLineAir heated air tubing and its Swift LT and FX masks infringe patents.
