Theragen Receives Two New Patents for Company’s ActaStim® Bone Growth Stimulator System

Jacksonville, FL., December 18, 2023 – OrthoSpineNews – Theragen, a medical technology company, today announced the company’s issuance of two new U.S. patents and the allowance of its pending U.S. patent application. Together with two previously issued patents (U.S. 11,395,919 and 11,426), this further demonstrates Theragen’s contribution to innovation in the field of post-surgical therapeutics, patient engagement, and digital data insights.

U.S. Patent 11,717,685, which was issued on August 8, 2023, focuses on tracking the intensity level of patient activity together with device usage, comparing this data against the prescribed therapy regimen to deliver insight into the recovery process for patients and surgeons.

U.S. Patent 11,759,637, which was issued on September 19, 2023, correlates system usage with the patient’s physiology to ensure patient confidence in the ongoing treatment and encourage patient compliance with the therapy regimen.

U.S. Patent Application Publication No. 2022/0387783, which was allowed on August 30, 2023, will be issued later this year with claims of comparing patient physiological data with patient-reported outcome measures, such as post-operative pain level, and to optimize the therapy regimen using this data.
