Romed Develops Patented Magnetic Electrical Connector System for Wearable Electronic
Devices

Romag magnetic fasteners for garments and leather goods
An extensive system of patented magnetic electrical connectors designed to be used on health related wearable electronic
devices was debuted by Romed Fasteners at the MD&M West
show held in February in California. The Romed U.S. patent
Number 10,609,967 will issue on April 7, 2020, said a company
spokesman.

rial by posts of plastic, stainless steel, aluminum or other materials. The posts can be made of insulators or conductive materials
coated on its head so that the post can be isolated electrically
from the user's skin. The low-cost studs and posts are suitable
for single use applications due to their economical production but
could also be manufactured for multi-use applications.

Romed will exclusively focus on medical and health related
devices. Romed is the newest member of the Rome Fastener
Corporation business family which, for over a century, has engineered and manufactured a broad array of innovative mechanical
and magnetic snap fasteners for garments and leather goods
under its Rome and Romag brands. Romed was independently
founded to focus on the medical and health fields, utilizing sibling
company Rome's expertise in the manufacturing of mechanical
snap fasteners coupled with a quarter of a century of experience
in magnetic fastener technology by sibling company, Romag.
Howard Reiter, inventor, founder and
president of Romed is a Princeton and MIT
educated engineer and the fourth generation
in his family manufacturing metal fasteners.

Central to the success of Romed's patented magnetic snap
fastener system is the use of licensed patented Romag magnets.
The Romag designed powerful circuited magnet is carefully
engineered to maximize its holding power, as depicted in the accompanying diagrams.

"Romed's newly patented magnetic snap
fastener system is designed to be used by
wearable device manufacturers so that a
user can magnetically connect a device to
their body, through a low-cost ferromagnetic

netic female mates with the male stud to complete the magnetic
circuit, and at the same time conducts electricity," according to
Reiter.
The male sheet metal stud can be attached to a substrate mate-
