The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has issued a “Final Patent” to Spine Pain Management allowing all claims for its new video transparency accessory for medical fluoroscopy devices, according to a company press release.
The new system, the Quad Video Halo (QVH), is a videofluoroscopy accessory device that can be attached to an X-ray head of a fluoroscopy system or device. It is designed to provide a platform for enhancing and supplementing the surgical environment with additional accessories.
The QVH has a ring assembly updated to improve camera positioning, as well as a new interface module to provide medical-grade isolation of the Halo ring components to meet safety requirements. Additionally, the product’s cart design incorporates a medical-grade uninterruptible power supply, according to the release.
During the past month, the QVH has undergone, and is currently in the final part of, EMC/EMI Product Safety testing at a Nationally Recognized Testing Laboratories facility in Texas, with testing expected to be completed by the third quarter.
According to the press release, the system will be certified to meet medical safety standards for U.S. market approval and will get the CE mark for the European market.
