INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY

Steadily Increasing Number of Patents Strategic Partnerships
Commitment to Protecting Customer IP Freedom To Operate (FTO)
Out-Licensing Opportunities Solid Track Record in Patent Monitoring & Patent mining

SHL has developed a comprehensive Intellectual Property (IP) strategy, which focuses on the importance of strictly safeguarding the IP of our customers and the licensing of IP solutions to our customers.

RANGE OF IP OWNERSHIPS

With a significant proportion of SHL’s revenue being continually reinvested in R&D, we have steadily increased our own intellectual property and the number of registered patents. This IP is used in our broad range of pipeline medical devices and healthcare equipment, which can in turn be licensed to customers through contractual agreements.

Our goal is to further enhance our strong IP protection mechanism throughout our organization and to actively maintain our intellectual property rights and those of our customers. In addition, SHL respects all Intellectual Property Rights (IPR) received from any of our customers and the IPR of others.

DEDICATED TEAM OF IP EXPERTS

SHL has a team of experts in the field of IP to help support the needs of our customers. Our confidentiality agreements ensure the protection of customer-related IP and the IP that SHL licenses to customers.
