On June 17, 2020, the Swiss Federal Patent Court denied an appeal brought by imtmedical AG regarding a long-standing Swiss patent dispute concerning certain flow sensor types.

The court’s decision is limited to iFlow™ sensors only in the markets of Switzerland and Liechtenstein. iFlow sensors continue to be available in all other markets. All other imtmedical and Vyaire branded products are not affected by this ruling.

Vyaire Medical, a global company dedicated to respiratory care and incorporated in the United States, acquired the imtmedical brand in 2018. Vyaire is proud to provide healthcare professionals with the most trusted solutions that improve and extend lives. The breadth and scale of our expertise allows us to provide a continued supply of high-quality flow sensors, industry-leading ventilators and related consumables through our global operations.
