With regard to the specific assertion that Whitmyer “teaches away” from interchangeable headrests, we note that “[t]eaching away is irrelevant to anticipation.” Seachange Int'l, Inc. v. CCOR, Inc., 413 F.3d 1361, 1380 (Fed. Cir. 2005).

Teleflex, Inc., 550 U.S. 398 (2007)] refers not only to the expectation that prior art elements are capable of being physically combined, but also that the combination would have worked for its intended purpose.” DePuy Spine, Inc. v. Medtronic Sofamor Danek, Inc., 567 F.3d 1314, 1326 (Fed. Cir. 2009).
