ResMed fires back at Fisher & Paykel
SAN DIEGO – ResMed has filed patent infringement actions against Fisher & Paykel Healthcare in U.S., German and New Zealand courts, as well as the U.S. International Trade Commission. ResMed seeks an injunction banning import of Fisher & Paykel’s Simplus full face mask, Eson nasal mask and Eson 2 nasal mask, asserting that those masks infringe on ResMed's patents relating to modular mask systems, headgear design and cushion design. Earlier this week, Fisher & Paykel Healthcare filed patent infringement proceedings against ResMed, seeking judgment 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 that it holds. ResMed has also asked the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of California in San Diegoto declare that it does not infringe those patents.
