Intellectual Property

LIM Innovations® believes in the importance of protecting its intellectual property through patent and trademark filings and a trade secret policy. With these types of protection, LIM can continue to devote resources toward innovative new technologies that benefit and empower our amputee users.

To that end, we’re developing a portfolio of US and foreign patents covering numerous aspects of our products, including the innovative strut-based structure of the Infinite Socket™ system, the hardware and soft goods components, the use of innovative materials, and methods of making and using our products. Our engineers and designers, an in-house patent agent, and outside counsel all work closely to ensure that key inventions are efficiently captured in patent applications.
