I have a question and I wanted to see if they could help me. Can I create a product that is patented but improve it on many points and add more things? And with a completely different design but with the same function? I understand that design registration can be done and the same function of the product can be done.

Without being an expert on the subject commented: there is a difference between the inventive step (patent) and improvement. This improvement in right called a "utility model", and also is patentable but has other requirements pantentabilidad: that is a novelty and industrial utility. Here's a manual from the ministry of industry which details how to apply: [http://www.oepm.es/export/sites/oepm/comun/documentos\_relacionados/Invenciones/Manual\_Solic\_Modelos\_de\_Utilidad.pdf](http://www.oepm.es/export/sites/oepm/comun/documentos_relacionados/Invenciones/Manual_Solic_Modelos_de_Utilidad.pdf)
