Prometheus Medical Announces Patent Grant

22nd July 2019

Prometheus Medical (www.prometheusmed.com), a designer, manufacturer and distributor of uniquely clinically influenced medical products for the pre-hospital and emergency medicine markets, today announced the first European granting for its technical invention of the Prometheus PIN® intraosseous infusion system.

The two granted patents relate to the Prometheus PIN®, which enables rapid intraosseous (IO) access when intravenous access is challenging or impossible.  The Prometheus PIN® has been developed by leading clinicians who understand the need for a high quality, reliable IO device, delivered at an affordable price. The Prometheus PIN® has been designed to be used rapidly, intuitively and effectively.

These patents add to those already held by Prometheus, as it continues to build its intellectual property portfolio.

Prometheus Medical Group CEO and Chairman Dr Malcolm Russell MBE said, “Obtaining this patent further demonstrates Prometheus’ approach to offer clinically significant, patient-focused devices for our market and more importantly for patients who need them as well as further protecting the intellectual property of Prometheus Medical”.
