Fisher & Paykel Healthcare announced that it has filed patent infringement proceedings in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California seeking judgment that ResMed’s AirSense 10 and AirCurve 10 range of flow generator products, ClimateLineAir heated air tubing for use with such flow generator products and Swift LT and Swift FX masks, infringe patents held by Fisher & Paykel Healthcare.
The company alleges that certain of ResMed’s continuous positive airway pressure devices and accessories used in the treatment of patients with obstructive sleep apnea, and certain of ResMed’s masks infringe on Fisher & Paykel Healthcare patents. Fisher & Paykel Healthcare is seeking all available remedies, including damages and injunctive relief.
“Fisher & Paykel Healthcare has invested substantial resources in the research and development of its technologies over the past 45 years,” said Lewis Gradon, Managing Director and CEO of Fisher & Paykel Healthcare. “The company has protected that investment through the development of a significant portfolio of more than 1,400 issued and pending patents, and it takes infringement of its intellectual property rights very seriously.”
