Contact Lenses Patent Search and Analysis Report
This report takes a look into the patenting activity around contact lens uncovering the inventors, the companies and key technologies and prominent companies within this space. Contact lenses are considered medical devices and can be worn to correct vision, or for cosmetic or therapeutic reasons. People choose to wear contact lenses for many reasons. Aesthetics and cosmetics are often motivating factors for people who would like to avoid wearing glasses or would like to change the appearance of their eyes. Other people wear contacts for functional or optical reasons. When compared with spectacles, contact lenses typically provide better peripheral vision, and do not collect moisture such as rain, snow, condensation, or sweat. Contact lenses can be classified in many different ways. Contact lenses can be separated by their primary function, material, wear schedule i.e. how long a lens can be worn before removing it and replacement schedule i.e. how long before a lens needs to be discarded. Typically, soft contact lenses are mass-produced, while rigid lenses are custom-made to exact specifications for specific individual patients. When it comes to contact lenses, it’s very important to know exactly what’s inside of them, or better yet, what they’re made of. Materials used have varied throughout the years. Earlier times called for more rigid materials that didn’t allow much oxygen to get to your eye. But as technology has improved, so has the availability of products.
3D Printing Patent Search and Analysis Report
This report takes a look into the patenting activity around 3D printing uncovering the inventors, the companies and key technologies and prominent companies within this space. 3D printing or additive manufacturing is a process of making a three-dimensional solid object of virtually any shape from a digital model. 3D printing is achieved using an additive process, where successive layers of material are laid down in different shapes. 3D printing is also considered distinct from traditional machining techniques, which mostly rely on the removal of material by methods such as cutting or drilling (subtractive processes). The term additive manufacturing refers to technologies that create objects through sequential layering. Objects that are manufactured additively can be used anywhere throughout the product life cycle, from pre-production (i.e. rapid prototyping) to full-scale production (i.e. rapid manufacturing), in addition to tooling applications and post-production customization. The 3D printing technology is used for both prototyping and distributed manufacturing with applications in architecture, construction (AEC), industrial design, automotive, aerospace, military, engineering, civil engineering, dental and medical industries, biotech (human tissue replacement), fashion, footwear, jewelry, eyewear, education, geographic information systems, food, and many other fields.

Nanofabrics Patent Search and Analysis Report
A fiber that has a width of less than 1000 nanometers (1000 nm or 1 µm) is generally defined as a nano fiber. A nanoparticle is defined as a small group of atoms or molecules with a radius of less than 100 nanometers (100 nm). Particles on the nanoscale have a very high surface area to volume ratio, whereas this ratio is much lower for objects on the macroscopic scale. Nanofabrics are textiles engineered with small particles that give ordinary materials advantageous properties such as superhydrophobicity, odor and moisture elimination, increased elasticity and strength, and bacterial resistance. Depending on the desired property, a nanofabric is either constructed from nanoscopic fibers called nano fibers, or is formed by applying a solution containing nanoparticles to a regular fabric.

Voice / Speech Recognition: Patent Search and Analysis Report using PatSeer
Speech recognition (SR) is the translation of spoken words into text. It is also known as "automatic speech recognition", "ASR", "computer speech recognition", "speech to text", or "STT". Speech recognition systems made more than 10 years ago also faced a choice between discrete and continuous speech. It is much easier for the program to understand words when we speak them separately, with a distinct pause between each one. However, most users prefer to speak in a normal, conversational speed. Most modern systems are capable of understanding continuous speech. This report looks at the patenting activity around voice control of mobile devices and also captures key litigations and NPE’s operating in this area. Innovation however, in the voice recognition space has been going on since many years and in this report we take a look at 20 year patenting activity on voice recognition and voice commands to mobile devices over US patent database.

Technology Insight Report: Knee Problems Diagnosis and Treatments
This report takes a look into the patenting activity around knee anatomy uncovering the inventors, the companies and the intellectual property history behind different knee anatomy, its research momentum and key intellectual property indicators. Knee is one of the most important joints of our body. It plays an essential role in movement related to carrying the body weight in horizontal (running and walking) and vertical (jumps) directions. Knee joint is made up of bone, cartilage, ligaments and fluid. Muscles and tendons help the knee joint move. Knee is a pivotal hinge joint, which permits flexion and extension as well as a slight medial and lateral rotation. Since in humans the knee supports nearly the whole weight of the body, it is vulnerable to different injuries. Knee is composed of three functional compartments: the femoropatellar articulation consists of the patella, or "kneecap", and the patellar groove on the front of the femur through which it slides; and the medial and lateral femorotibial articulations linking the femur, or thigh bone, with the tibia, the main bone of the lower leg. The joint is bathed in synovial fluid which is contained inside the synovial membrane called the joint capsule. Overall, the research and development work related to the crutiate ligament appears to be a highly active and growing one.
