  • Scenario

    A biomedical device researcher would like to find out more about the invention developed by David Sengeh and similar inventions.

    The researcher would also like to know if these inventions have been patented in the United States.

  • Scenario

    Your task is to:

    retrieve patent applications related to the invention made by David Sengeh

    determine the current status of these patent applications

  • Task breakdown

    Access PatFT/AppFT

    Retrieve patent documents based on

    keywords

    Examine a specific patent document

    Review legal status information

  • Task breakdown

    Access PatFT/AppFT

    Retrieve patent documents based on

    keywords

    Examine a specific patent document

    Review legal status information

  • USPTO Homepage

  • USPTO Homepage

  • USPTO: Patent search

  • USPTO: Patent search (AppFT)

  • USPTO: Patent search (PatFT)

  • Patent search

    AppFT: Patent applications published since 2001

    PatFT: Patents issued since 1790 (with searchable full-text since 1976)

  • American Inventors Protection Act (AIPA)

    Post-AIPA: Patent applications published after expiry of 18-month period from earliest filing date (with certain exceptions)

    Pre-AIPA: Only issued patents published

  • Question

    Can we use AppFT to retrieve patent applications filed in 1999?

    �No, only patent applications filed after November 29, 2000 were published prior to grant and can be retrieved through AppFT.

  • Question

    Can we use PatFT to retrieve patents issued in 1952?

    �Yes, patents issued since 1790 can be retrieved through PatFT.

  • Question

    Can we use the following query in PatFT to retrieve patents issued for polyurethane prosthetics inventions in 1952?

  • Task breakdown

    Access PatFT/AppFT

    Retrieve patent documents based on
