3777 Ex Parte Grunwald et al 11431118 - (D) BAHR 103 37 C.F.R. § 41.50(b) 112(2) SHAY GLENN LLP REARDON, ROCHELLE D

Claims 7 and 29 recite “a sensor attachment mechanism” and do not use the term “means.” Typically, when a claim recitation does not include the term “means,” the recitation is presumed not to be in means-plus function format. However, in this case, the claim term “mechanism” is a generic term that fails to recite sufficiently definite structure. Moreover, the remainder of claims 7 and 29 recite functional language without sufficient structure for performing the recited functions. Because the term “mechanism” and the functional language that follows are “essentially . . . devoid of anything that can be construed as structure,” the presumption is overcome. See Flo Healthcare Solutions, LLC v. Kappos, 697 F.3d 1367, 1374 (Fed. Cir. 2012). We thus conclude that claims 7 and 29 are drafted in means-plus-function format.
