Plantiga Technologies Announces the International Patent Registration of Its Biometric Technology for Major Security Implementations

Tuesday, November 09, 2010

Vancouver, British Columbia -- Plantiga Technologies Inc., a privately-held Vancouver, BC, based company, which is now in the pre-commercialization phase of its company's development, today announced the formal completion of its international patent registration.

Plantiga has developed a biometric technology measuring gait, posture and movement, which will provide the highest level of security for uses in Homeland Security, air, sea and other port protection, major community utilities (water, electricity, gas, nuclear, etc.), pharmaceutical research facilities, Armed Forces, and other facilities requiring 100% security integrity.

"Our technology consolidates data from a person's gait, posture and movement and collects that data in a central security system – wherever the person is in the secured facility," said Quin Sandler, CEO of Plantiga. "1GRID® is a security network which continually monitors and audits against preset rules in the system. Our biometric data is as accurate as matching DNA... but we do it non-intrusively!"

While security is Plantiga's focus for the foreseeable future, the technology can be used for medical diagnosis and treatment, for sports and recreational performance and for simple comfort.

Plantiga received a Class "A" rating from the USPTO with an International Search Report, as well as with a Written Opinion. This is rare and highlights the strength of the IP.

Plantiga has one of the foremost biometric technologists, based in Australia, working on commercial production, and the senior team runs international business development from Singapore and Vancouver. Already in partnership negotiations with leading security integrators, Plantiga is currently raising Series A investment to complete its commercially available infrastructure.
