PATENT OWNERSHIP

  1. National patent – Title: Radiofrequency active electrode and method for microendoscopic discectomy interventions. Patent 0001347474 – Registration September 19, 2008. This invention has as its object the industrial design and the innovative method for the realization of a surgical electrode (scalpel) built in pure titanium and used in the field of Surgery. The invention concerns the aesthetics, material and ergonomics of the electrode, in order to improve the functionality, usability and safety of the product for humans, in order to improve the well-being and life of man.
  1. National patent – Title:  New high-carat gold alloys of superior hardness. Patent 0001358400 – Registration 01 April 2009. This invention, the result of inter and multidisciplinary research, has as its object the creation of products with ultra-performing gold alloys that, due to characteristics of resilience and durability, can be used for the protection and ennobling of precious elements, adapting over time to external conditions.
  1. National patent – Title:  Method to prepare bioactive, biocompatible implants whose surface is characterized by clusters of me 1. 07 ti 1. 73 o4 with a fractal lepidocrocite structure, to be allocated to the domain of dental implantology and orthopedics. Patent 0001386070 – Registration 09 February 2011. This invention, the subject of inter and multidisciplinary research, has as its object the production of new fractal surfaces on titanium materials, whose innovation is given by nanostructured geometry.
