EMED has been a global innovator in the infusion technology market for decades. It has produced best-in-class needles since the 1990's and pioneered SCIG needle designs and infusion technology. EMED's safety needle patent has a priority date of 2008 and includes several issued patents.

Since the first issuance, RMS has attempted to invalidate EMED's patents using the Inter Partes Review (IPR) in order to avoid rightful claims of infringement of RMS's needle sets including but not limited to HIgHFlo sets.

Despite RMS's ongoing efforts spending millions of dollars in attempts at subterfuge and gaming the system, the recent Patent Trial and Appeal Board decision on November 2nd, 2018 ratifies EMED's safety needle IP:
