Nox Medical Ehf v. Natus Neurology, Inc.

On January 3, 2017, the U.S. District Court for the District of Delaware issued a claim construction order that determined that (i) the term “flexibility” in the asserted claims of U.S. Patent No. 9,059,532 (“the ‘532 Patent”) is construed to mean “the ability of a part, related to its geometry and material properties, to elastically deform under an applied stress,” and (ii) the term “through the receiving hole” is construed to mean “entering the hole, passing through the hole, and exiting the hole.”  In the underlying case, Nox Medical Ehf (“the Plaintiff”) accused Natus Neurology Inc. (“the Defendant”) of infringing the ‘532 Patent, which is drawn to a biometric belt connector, by making, using, selling, offering for sale and/or exporting its XactTrace product that comprises a biometric belt connector for respiratory belts.  The case remains pending and is captioned 1-15-cv-00709.
