Encouraging growth of assistive technologies
The Industrial Property Institute (INAPI) recently launched the third edition of a report on public domain technologies for people with disabilities. This document seeks to raise awareness of inventions on assistive technologies. The corresponding patent protection for the inventions either was never requested in Chile, or it has expired, thus falling into the public domain.
The report by INAPI highlights a series of devices and implements that can improve the quality of life of people with disabilities with the aim of disclosing the advances in assistive technologies currently accessible. The final goal is to encourage entrepreneurs to work in this field, so more innovative solutions can be found for challenges facing people with disabilities.
