Common Patent Issues

Patent pic

Robert Kasirer was inspired to enter the healthcare sector because of his parents’ sterling reputation in the nursing home industry. An attorney and innovator, Robert Kasirer has applied for a patent on a new system of applications addressing the needs of intermediate care facilities, such as nursing homes and hospitals.

Filing for a patent is a complicated process. If you’re applying for a patent, be prepared for the following issues.

1. You will be asked to pay a filing fee, which will not be refunded even if the patent fails. If your application is accepted, you will need to pay an issue fee.

2. You will be asked for maintenance fees three and one-half years, seven and one-half years, and 11 and one-half years from the date the patent is granted.

3. The biggest mistake that filers make is failing to fully describe their inventions. You should include descriptions of every feature of the invention in enough detail that someone familiar with the industry can replicate the design.

An inventor, business executive, and innovator, Robert Kasirer has spent years working in the long-term healthcare industry to improve the lives of seniors and individuals with disabilities. Robert Kasirer is also a graduate of New York University and the St. John’s University School of Law. Outside of his professional activities, Mr. Kasirer enjoy staying active and participates in SoulCycle workouts on a regular basis.

SoulCycle is a popular spinning class that incorporates inspirational coaching, music, and even weight training into its 45-minute-long workouts. First opened in 2006, SoulCycle gyms offer a wide range of health benefits in addition to the approximately 500 to 700 calories that are burned each session.

Since spinning is a cardiovascular workout, participants benefit from increased conditioning. However, SoulCycle also incorporates resistance and weight training, which results in better overall muscle tone and increased caloric burn. Spinning is also a low impact workout, so participants with joint issues can participate without an increase in arthritic pain. In addition, the group setting and inspirational nature of SoulCycle enables individuals to push through fitness barriers and increase their overall health and wellness.

Examples of Problems Associated with Old Age

Old Age

A son of Nazi Europe survivors, Robert Kasirer is a California-based healthcare and real-estate innovator. At a young age, Robert Kasirer began working in healthcare as a weekend helper at his parents’ health service facility. Later, he took over ownership of the facility, Golden State Health Centers, and worked there as an executive. The health center mainly serves elderly adults in Southern California, addressing various issues that arise when people age.

Especially after age 65, people start to experience various physiological and psychological problems. In old age, the human body starts to decline physically, with conditions like arthritis, respiratory disease, heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and osteoporosis becoming more prevalent.

Elderly adults may also begin to suffer from psychological problems, in part due to physiological problems that may limit their independent movement. People may also have lower income in old age. These factors indirectly plunge them into isolation and can lead to psychological distress.
