This Chocking

Because without patents, a rival company could simply the welding machine of the welding GmbH unscrew, look at and recreate the device. If all competitors are doing this, the welder GmbH by the new development has had more and therefore no benefits research expenditure, without that this is resulted in a benefit for the company. This effect, that competitors adopt technologies from the innovator, is called spillover effect. The copy is easier, the spillover effect is higher and the less incentives to do research at all. If the welder GmbH has now developed the new welding equipment and has registered as a patent, arises the question whether it is worthwhile to introduce the new better product at all. We assume that the welder GmbH for the old welding devices already has a market share of 90%. If she now introduces the new welding machine, an effect on the Schumpeter’s creative destruction”has called.

The company cannibalizes itself, that means she will be once the new machines on the market are, the old equipment no longer come on or just have to extremely low prices. Therefore the impact welding GmbH must switch complete production, resulting in high costs. In addition, it could be that the new equipment last longer, less profit can be make with you so. There are so various factors, which may cause the welder GmbH at all not to use the new technology. The competition again can not insert also the technology, because the welder GmbH has a corresponding patent for the new welding machine.

This Chocking of the competition is called the blocking patent. The not an innovation is certainly not only a negative, because sometimes a whole industry can get through an innovation issues. So, the promoters of the combustible gases are affected when other gases or less gases used in the new procedure. Here there can be a big slump in demand and the corresponding consequences such as bankruptcies and dismissal. There are many other effects, which are subject to innovations and issues, triggered by innovations be. Economically there are usually enough, but sometimes too much innovation or innovations lead to a dead end (E.g. Zeppelin). Especially, Schumpeter and arrow have provided interesting approaches in these matters. And the welding machine of the welding GmbH? The technology has prevailed. Today, most modern welding equipment are electric arc welding machines.

Mannheim June DOC

SafeTIC AG examines usage patterns to the DOC in comprehensive study of Mannheim June 2013. The DOC, a special, developed by SafeTIC AG defibrillator system allows every layman, to give first aid in an emergency. Meanwhile, the device in many public buildings is installed in some companies. How is the DOC here and whether he actually used, the SafeTIC AG now examined in a study with interesting findings. The most defibrillators are not used. That is the sobering realization of the SafeTIC study on the more information under is. A total of 2,000 people were asked, 300 of them with defibrillator in the workplace.

But why not more employees use the DOC, where its application is so easy? SafeTIC finds great fear of risks of false application the study found that many people fear being wrong to apply the DOC and possibly harming the heart patients. 61% of the Respondents thought of injuries for which they possibly could be held liable to kill 11%, even to those affected by the administration of an inappropriate shock. The SafeTIC AG can allay such concerns, because the DOC works like all defibrillators only in people who have really suffered a heart attack. Also a false application is excluded, because the emergency device developed specifically for the first aid by non-professionals more or less automatically regulates everything: is taken from his anchoring the DOC, it connects automatically to the PSAP, which supports the first rescuers about language instructions. An automatic diagnosis function checks to see if FIB has occurred and administered an adequate electrical shock if necessary. At the same time is issued the emergency call to an ambulance. DOC shortens time until the arrival of paramedics and secures life-saving seconds a colleagues affected by the heart attack to defibrillate, how would do it 10% of respondents, is so “better than just” an ambulance called up to wait for, as 41% would do it.

Fear incorrectly apply the DOC, have nobody there, so the SafeTIC AG: one reason for the-application non of the DOC s, after all, called 44%. Quietly, the 11% who were still uncertain regarding the use despite training, can trust to use the DOC. Wrong you can nothing, which encourages SafeTIC AG. On the contrary, he can save lives: alone in Germany die every year between a – and 200,000 people in cardiac arrest. About SafeTIC AG, SafeTIC AG with headquarters in Mannheim is a company that specializes in biometric systems with fingerprint and finger morphology. SafeTIC is represented also in the areas of video surveillance, the intrusion detection technology (EMA) and the person protection of brand DOC (remote controlled defibrillator).
