It is true that when a “word of degree” is used in a claim, the claim is not indefinite when the Specification provides “some standard for measuring that degree.” Biosig Instr., Inc. v. Nautilus, Inc., 783 F.3d 1374, 1378 (Fed. Cir. 2015) (addressing indefiniteness of a limitation within an issued patent). In this case, however, Appellants do not establish that the Specification provides any standard by which the claim terms “about” and “substantially” may be measured.
