Tampa, FL, Oct. 18, 2021 — McapMediaWire — Umbra Applied Technologies Group, Inc (OTC Pink: UATG) (“UAT Group”) announced today that strategic partner Next Casting Technologies has received its Notice of Allowance from the United States Patent Office, paving the way for its advanced SmartCast, IntelliBrace and BioSplint technology to enter into patented production.

UAT Chief Executive Officer Alex Umbra, stated, “The NextCast SmartCast system has been under development and testing for quite some time. This is the final step of a lengthy patent process before entering the production phase of these product lines.”

Next Casting Technologies (NCT) is a research and design-centric, biomedical technology company, with an expanding portfolio of intellectual property. The SmartCast Application allows the casting technician to slip the SmartCast around the affected limb and position to fit by using a simple “mold and hold” technique. Lastly, the cast is activated by pressing the button to initiate the curing process.  Within 4 minutes that cast is hardened, fixed in place and is not dependent on the technician’s artistry, or lack thereof. The results are a predictable standard of care across the patient spectrum. The end result is a completely waterproof, antimicrobial, orthopedic cast, that is time saving for clinicians and a superior standard of care for patients.

Mark Estrada, Chief Executive Officer of NextCast commented, “This is what we have been waiting for.  We initially filed with an expanded overview of the technology to include casting, bracing and splinting.  Now that the United States Patent Office has approved this outline we can proceed with continuing claims. I am excited to move forward to the production phase of this new and exciting product line”.

The company anticipates beginning production of the SmartCast product line and sharing the technology via our updated web site in the coming weeks with revenues being reported on its financial statements in Q1 2022.
