Landscape of Sports-Related Concussion’ in the latest issue of The Global IP

Reach for Gold –taking a closer look inside the world of intellectual property
“Since 2000 the number of patent filings appears to start to rise in
2010, with a big surge occurring from 2013 onwards; this may be attributed to
the beginning of awareness of concussions in sports. The apparent dip in
filings in 2017/2018 is most likely explained by applications that have yet to
be published and would be claiming those years as a priority. It could be
anticipated that the number of concussion- related patent filings will continue
to increase in the coming years as to how to prevent sports related- concussion
has become a huge topic globally. There have been numerous efforts for
prevention and mitigation of sports-related concussion, including the use of
protective equipment, improved sports regulations and legislation, concussion
education and improved monitoring of concussion.”
On International Women’s Day we asked one of our clients Gemma Jensen, inventor of the J-Pillow travel pillow and British Invention of the Year Winner, what she would recommend to budding inventors.
Gemma, who in a previous career was a Flight Attendant for Virgin Atlantic, invented the J-Pillow travel pillow after a particularly fraught long-haul flight with her children. Recognising that there was an opportunity to create a pillow that provided a supportive frame and help alleviate the dreaded head drop, she started making a prototype at home. The rest as they say is history!
