WHIPgroup attorneys were successful in reopening prosecution for a patent application directed to voice control of medical devices. The application received a Final Office Action rejecting the claims as anticipated by two references. WHIPgroup attorneys filed a request to participate in the Post-Prosecution Pilot (P3) Program and argued that the prior art failed to show use of a calibration signal to improve speech recognition. The P3 panel was persuaded and prosecution was reopened without the need for either an RCE or Appeal.
