There is an app/software that evaluates posture. I would like to create a software that does the same idea (evaluates posture) except make it better based on my needs and idea of the functions/software.
It would be different in many ways, however the core "idea", which is a posture analysis would be the same. It would look different, function different, and have different look and feel, but in the end it is still a posture analysis/evaluation.
Mine would also be a web application versus the original is an app on the itunes store for phones and ipads.
I will be developing all the code from scratch (not using any of their coding) and will be developing this software specifically for my needs and wants.
However, I am unaware if this will be an issue as the current app is "patent pending". Any insight on if I can do this, and/or the best way to do it while avoiding any legal issues would be greatly appreciated!! Thank you.
