Dr. Kingsley R Chin and engineers granted wi-fi sensor patent for the AxioMed viscoelastic whole disc alternative which they plan to leverage to achieve market share within the rising good medical system market estimated to be valued at $23.50 billion.
MALDEN, MASS. (PRWEB) SEPTEMBER 15, 2022 –
On September 29, 2017, Dr. Kingsley R Chin and engineers working at KICVentures Group quietly submitted their patent software so as to add distant sensing capabilities to their AxioMed viscoelastic whole disc alternative. On September 8, 2020 they have been awarded patent # US 10,765,527 B2. This was a seismic accomplishment because it means AxioMed can now be marketed as a wise system with an built-in sensor that may talk with an exterior system to report and retailer information similar to spinal movement, monitor forces, disc operate and any physiologic situation programmed throughout the sensor.
Market Analysis Future (MRFR) estimated the good medical gadgets market to achieve $23.50 billion by 2027 at a compound annual progress fee (CAGR) of 23.5 %. Good medical gadgets are recreation altering innovations on the forefront of digital healthcare offering life altering data that results in diagnoses and coverings. Good gadgets are wi-fi linked to smartphones making the affected person and physician extra linked and capable of retailer and retrieve information seamlessly.
“An information sensing circuit on the AxioMed disc provides to the opposite fascinating and distinctive options similar to a number of lordotic angles and the compressibility of the viscoelastic core,” says Vito Lore, VP of Improvements at KICVentures.
In a current publication in Becker’s healthcare (Implantable sensors, superior navigation might be subsequent step for disc alternative) Dr. Michael Goldsmith was quoted as saying, “the following step with TDR will likely be to combine sensors within the implant that may talk movement, put on and attainable loosening. This data will assist alert the affected person and the surgeon at an early stage when there could also be an issue that warrants a go to to the surgeon.” One other surgeon Dr. Adam Kanter said, “what I might actually love is that if the implant was capable of talk its motion and mechanistic ‘well being’ via bluetooth or another wi-fi/imageless mechanism.”
The patent offered a sensing synthetic disc core having a prime floor, a backside floor, and at the very least one sidewall: at the very least one sensor disposed in or on the resilient core and a wi-fi transmitter configured to transmit sign consultant of a sensed situation. The disc can embody at the very least one mechanism configured to manage, affect, or alter circumstances of the resilient core.
“Our instinct advised us the longer term would require the world to have extra good wi-fi gadgets with synthetic intelligence (AI) so we moved rapidly to begin with AxioMed and we’re grateful the US Patent Workplace rewarded us with this historic patent,” stated Dr. Kingsley R Chin, the co-inventor on the patent and a board-certified professor of orthopedics and spine surgical procedure in addition to chief govt officer of KICVentures Group who owns AxioMed LLC.
“We’ve got organically constructed AxioMed with no institutional funding which permits us to make out-of-the-box choices like spending the money to put money into a wi-fi good AxioMed system,” stated Aditya Humad, former JP Morgan Funding Banker and present CFO and Co-founder at KICVentures Group.

AxioMed was based in 2001 by surgeons at Cleveland Clinic and engineers who beforehand labored with Dr. Artwork Steffee and Acroflex viscoelastic disc alternative. The present AxioMed disc includes of a proprietary silica-based viscoelastic materials confirmed in in depth biomedical/biocompatible testing to imitate the human disc in all planes and 50+ years of longevity testing. The viscoelastic materials is radiolucent and thus X-ray and MRI appropriate. Over 800 discs have been implanted worldwide with zero failures or revisions. It’s the solely viscoelastic lumbar disc to finish a USA IDE scientific research with 10+ years of follow-up.
About KICVentures Group
Our founders have been investing in spine surgical procedure 2000 makes us probably the most skilled healthcare funding holding firm with the most important portfolio of medical system applied sciences targeted on options for much less invasive outpatient spine surgical procedure. Our funding technique is to accumulate or invent disruptive applied sciences utilizing our personal capital or associate with personal particular person traders. This permits us the liberty to make fast and nimble choices similar to after we acquired AxioMed Viscoelastic Disc Applied sciences whereas different corporations invested in spinal fusion.
