Date:9/18/2009

A federal jury in Tampa Florida returned a verdict in favor of Hako-Med finding that Axiom Worldwide willfully infringed Hako-Med's Horizontal Therapy patent and awarded damages(United States District Court, Middle District of Florida Case No.: 8:06-cv1790-T33AEP). In addition, the federal court issued another permanent injunction against Axiom Worldwide barring all EPS 8000 devices manufactured prior to November 28th 2006.

Honolulu, HI (PRWEB) September 18, 2009 -- A federal jury in Tampa Florida returned a verdict in favor of Hako-Med finding that Axiom Worldwide willfully infringed Hako-Med's Horizontal Therapy patent and awarded damages (United States District Court, Middle District of Florida Case No.: 8:06-cv1790-T33AEP). In addition, the federal court issued another permanent injunction against Axiom Worldwide barring all EPS 8000 devices manufactured prior to November 28th 2006.

A day earlier a federal judge in the United States District Court, Middle District of Florida, Tampa division, the honorable Virginia M. Hernandez Covington, made a temporary injunction against Axiom Worldwide permanent thereby baring Axiom Worldwide from using one of Hako-Med's trademarks.

Axiom Worldwide, based in Tampa Florida, manufactures spinal decompression devices as well as a pain management device, which was found to infringe on Hako-Med's unique patented pain therapy. Axiom Worldwide's head-engineer further admitted under oath that Axiom had done no validation through published clinical studies on their EPS 8000 devices prior to marketing the unsubstantiated claims to physicians that the EPS8000 devices "presents a breakthrough in electrical stimulation therapy" and "the most advanced Electrical Nerve stimulation available today."

Axiom Worldwide has additional pending litigation with other companies, including an alleged trademark infringement suit. (North American Medical vs. Axiom Worldwide No. 1:06-CV-1678-JTC)

Hako-Med offers a special amnesty period from civil litigations for any physician who wants to upgrade from an infringing device to Hako-Med Horizontal Therapy devices by the end of October 2009. (www.hakomed.com)

Hako-Med's policy is to vigorously defend its intellectual property portfolio. Hako-Med is the only manufacturer and supplier of devices with the patented Horizontal Therapy. Horizontal Therapy has been known through many clinical trials to outperform existing treatment methods in the treatment of pain from Osteoarthritis by having immediate as well as longer lasting therapeutic effects without any negative side effects.
