US Patent 8,852,110 granted – how to generate ultrasound from thin film material

US Patent 8,852,110 granted to DVX, LLC and licensed exclusively by Arterium Medical, LLC.

This patent describes how to make a thin film of piezopolymer material generate a focused beam of ultrasound energy.

Arterium Medical believes that this patent limits others from making a flexible thin film generate an ultrasound beam. A usable bio-sensor must be flexible to match the contours of the skin and to maintain a consistent orientation.
