05.07.2021

Hamilton Medical AG ("Hamilton") and imtmedical ag ("imtmedical") recently reached a settlement in two patent litigations.

The parties have agreed not to disclose the content of the settlements.

In one case, the Swiss Federal Supreme Court’s decision of June 17, 2020 had denied an appeal by imtmedical and confirmed a decision handed down by the Swiss Federal Patent Court on December 17, 2019, in which they recognized that imtmedical had infringed Hamilton’s Patent No. CH701755B1 regarding flow sensors, in particular proximal flow sensors.

In the second case, the Swiss Federal Supreme Court’s decision of July 16, 2020 denied an appeal filed by imtmedical and confirmed a decision issued by the Swiss Federal Patent Court on November 1, 2019, in which they mainly approved Hamilton's claim that imtmedical had infringed Hamilton’s European Patent No. 1984805B1 regarding a device ("ventilation cockpit") for simplifying the diagnostic assessment of a mechanically ventilated patient.

Hamilton reserves the right to take action, where appropriate and necessary, against any alleged third-party infringers who are not covered by this settlement.
