Kyma Medical Technologies sought to clarify the technology of its medical diagnostic device in comments posted Tuesday as it pursues a waiver from the Federal Communications Commission on rules restricting use of such medical ultra-wideband devices.

Kyma said in its reply comments that two of the three parties that commented on its request for a rule waiver generally support granting the waiver, and the third party, the GPS Innovation Alliance, simply asked more questions about the uCor 3.0’s potential for interference. The uCor uses UWB radio frequency to monitor lung fluid levels to treat patients with congestive heart failure. The device must operate between 530 megahertz and 2.105 gigahertz to both penetrate the human body and generate precise image information, but FCC rules restrict the UWB bandwidth of a medical imaging system to between 3.1 and 10.6 gigahertz.

Terry G. Mahn of Fish & Richardson PC, who represents Kyma, told Law360 on Tuesday that the waiver would allow the uCor to operate in the same spectrum that several other ultra-wideband devices already use.

“All we’re doing in their spectrum is what tons of other devices do in their spectrum, but at lower levels, indoors and less frequently,” Mahn said. “We’re much more benign in terms of our impact on spectrum users as far as GPS than other ultra-wideband devices.”
