HCi Viocare files new international patent application for advances in pressure and shear sensing technology
HCi Viocare Technologies Ltd, has filed for a new International (PCT) patent application for its pressure and shear sensing technology, which covers over 140 countries around the world. The new patent builds on the company’s three UK patent applications filed in December 2014, with further advances made to the sensor systems, and a wider range of applications in products that touch people’s everyday lives.
The high interest shown by prospective partners for the company’s technology after its initial application to the diabetic insole, drove HCi Viocare to develop further applications in areas such as the athletic shoes, mattresses, bicycles, car seats, gaming and many others.
The company's co-founder and CTO, Christos Kapatos, stressed the fact that this new develpment provides further boost to HCi Viocare for achieving its goals.
