CHF Solutions Expands its Patent Portfolio with Four Applications for Innovations for Aquapheresis Therapy

Jan 30, 2020

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn., Jan. 30, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CHF Solutions (Nasdaq: CHFS) today announced the filing of four patent applications with the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to protect new innovations for use in aquapheresis therapy and further strengthen the company’s intellectual property protection for its Aquadex FlexFlow® system.

“At CHF Solutions, we are dedicated to the development of innovations to change the lives of patients suffering from fluid overload,” said John Erb, chairman and CEO of CHF Solutions. “We believe that the innovations captured in these pending patent applications will improve the delivery of aquapheresis therapy.”

The first application includes multiple potential new features and improvements to the diagnostic and ultrafiltration capabilities of the Aquadex FlexFlow system, which, if incorporated into the product, would be designed to improve usability for healthcare providers and guide therapy for optimum patient fluid balance. The second application is based on the company’s design for a wearable device intended to assist in maintaining peripheral venous blood flow access in the arm during ultrafiltration treatment. The third application involves a wearable medical device designed to promote venous return. The fourth application involves a device designed to assess circulatory status during therapy.
