Aribex Awarded Patents for Handheld X-Ray

January 20, 2009 - Aribex, Inc. said it has been granted a second U.S. patent for its NOMAD Handheld X-ray System.
The latest patent (Appl. # 20070269010) protects the central concept of having all components of the X-ray system in the same enclosure. This concept led to the development of the first handheld X-ray system. Aribex was previously awarded patent #7,224,769 for the digital X-ray camera in October of 2007.

"No one had ever made a handheld intraoral X-ray with the power source in the same enclosure as the X-ray head," said D. Clark Turner, M.D., president and CEO of Aribex. "We opened up a new category when we created the NOMAD. We are glad to have our creativity and our technology recognized and protected in this manner."

Along with the invention associated with these patented products, Aribex has reportedly made significant investments in updating conventional industry standards and regulations, even to the extent of drafting new legislation to allow the use of handheld X-ray. The granting of this patent provides additional protection to this extensive investment.
