IPC Patent Attorney, Stephen Kepper, successfully assisted Edge-Works Manufacturing Company in obtaining a patent (US Pat. No. 10,675,196) covering a quick release, back carry first aid medical kit.
The invention relates in general to portable first aid kits and, in particular to a low profile first aid kit that is adaptable for a quick release and can be easily stored and carried by a person. The innovative design of the pouch pillow release system allows for the kit to be released with one hand and mounted either vertically or horizontally to any carrier, plate or vest surface, especially the back. Placement on the back allows the user to take advantage of unused space and prioritize individual equipment layout. Additionally, a shoulder strap allows the first aid kit to be easily carried until it is remounted to the carrier or vest surface.
An IPC client since 2013, Edge-Works is located in Burgaw, NC and is part of the tactical gear and tactical equipment industry. Edge-Works uses high-tech CAD/CAM processes to develop highly efficient and unique methods of manufacturing. These methods yield a high level of precision and repeatability in production with unique, patent pending features.
