EDGe Surgical, Inc., a company focused on developing and manufacturing smart orthopedic and spine surgical instruments.

Today they announced that its next-generation Awl-in-One TapTM device has been granted patent 10,912,483 titled “Handheld devices for use in medical procedures” by the United States Patent and Trademark Office.

EDGe Surgical’s newest patent contains 20 claims directed to orthopedic/spine navigation instrumentation. These claims provide broad protection for EDGe Surgical’s next-generation version of its Awl-in-One Tap’s NerveNAVTM technology. EDGe Surgical now holds 17 U.S. patents and 11 patents outside the U.S. on this technology, with six additional patent applications pending in the U.S. and 13 outside the U.S.
