Over the years, the term “Israeli Patents” has acquired an excellent reputation in Israel and worldwide. In recent decades, there have been many famous Israeli patents for inventions in a wide range of different fields.
Israeli inventors are currently involved in the fields of science, technology, security, industry and more… Some of the most famous Israeli patents are:
- Solar Water Heaters – This Israeli invention was patented decades ago. Solar water heaters save large amounts of energy and can be found on almost every roof in Israel. The water tank is connected to solar panels that heat water, which is circulated using a thermosyphon that sends hot water up and cold water down.
- Rav Bariach – An Israeli patent for a central door locking mechanism with four bolts to lock the door in four directions, which makes it very difficult to break down the door. For many years, this was one of the most important Israeli patents installed in very many houses in Israel and around the world. In fact, it is an upgrade of previous patents for safes and aircraft doors.
- Soft & Easy – An electrical hair remover, which is also one of Israel’s most famous patents worldwide. In fact, this is an upgrade and a refinement of other patents for inventions that first appeared in 1917. The older products patented before Soft & Easy also used an arched spring rotating around an axis to pluck hair. The Swiss patent from 1917 was a handle with an arched spring, which was pulled across body hair. The friction between the spring and the skin provided the force to pluck out the hair. The Soft & Easy Israeli patent, described a different geometry for the spring and a small electric motor, to rotate the spring on its axis.
- The Stent – The stent, which is manufactured by the Israeli company Medinol, is used to support blood vessel side walls and it is a very famous Israeli invention in very widespread use all over the world. Stents created a revolution in the field of cardiology and they have saved lives and extended life span for millions of people in Israel and globally. In practical terms, the stent is a specific type of collapsed mesh inserted into a blood vessel during a catheterization process. When the stent is in place, the mesh is expanded to support the blood vessel walls and allow blood to flow freely in those places where the blood vessel was previously constricted.
Patents constitute an important source of income for the State of Israel and they make it possible for many Israelis to work in Israeli industries.
