Comments from Speaker

The technology of surgical robots, which assist in surgery in place of human hands, has made remarkable advancement in recent years. As the initial patents for master-slave surgical robots obtained by major U.S. companies have expired, many companies are developing and commercializing surgical robots. Research and development of other types of robots, such as surgeon-assisted robots, is also underway.

Based on this background, since the global market for surgical robots is expected to expand in the future, this seminar provides you with practical tips for Medical Device Inventions in Japan, including:
– recent filing trend
– points to be noted in prosecution, including case law
