"There is a real need to invest in extending the life of joint implants and other medically assisted technology," noted Fielding Staton, WINDGO CEO and co-inventor. "We believe this patent holds tremendous promise for improving the long-term health and wellness of millions of people and mitigating damage occurring inside the human body as it relates to joint health."
The WINDGO joint implant system has application inside or outside the body and is designed to detect, mitigate and respond to vibration and changes in joint pressure. This is in line with WINDGO's emphasis on energy, resonance and vibration technologies and products.
This announcement is building on the company's success from the substrate-backed damping adhesive patent granted in October 2018 that can sense and provide a dynamic, real time response and provide something that is helpful, such as a vibration or anti-vibration like absorbing shock or any type of response that is therapeutic to joints.
The possible applications for WINDGO's substrate-backed damping adhesive are varied. Acoustical damping, production of smart building materials, auto and other industrial applications, as well as medical, aerospace and other critical market applications have great need for the attributes that WINDGO's Substrate-Backed Damping adhesive may provide.
WINDGO Inc. is focused on the IoT (internet of things) End-Node market expansion that is forecasted to exceed $1 trillion by 2025. This new invention is based on technologies that evolved from the original works of Staton. His invention of the Absorbud in 2013 has led to industry-changing advancements in macro, micro, and nano-based technologies.
WINDGO Inc. is a privately-held company based in Columbia, Mo. The company has several patent holdings within its intellectual property holding company: Newtonoid LLC, which has been in the research and development business since 2013.
