  • Patent number: 9754075
    Abstract: In an aspect, a method of monitoring one or more symptoms of a person include repeating, over a period of time, the steps of: selecting, by the person, one or more symbolic representations corresponding to one or more symptoms from a predefined set of symbolic representations presented to the person; and electronically recording data regarding the one or more symbolic representations selected by the person such that the data is electronically accessible later for generating a history of the symptoms of the person over the period of time. The one or more symbolic representations corresponding to one or more symptoms is selected using an electronic device having a component for displaying the predefined set of symbolic representations that is coupled to a user input for receiving the selection of the one or more symbolic representations by the person.

  • Patent number: 9693752
    Abstract: A method of correlating sonic activity with electric activity in an entity of interest includes interrogating, via a sonic sensor device, the physical structure, shape and/or form of an object in the entity of interest, interrogating, via an electric field sensor, the electric and/or magnetic potential associated with the object or the physical displacement of the geo-electric field by the object while avoiding resistive contact with other portions of the entity of interest, and linking results from the sonic sensor device to results from the electric field sensor.

  • Publication number: 20160379511
    Abstract: Apparatus, systems, and methods of health reporting are disclosed that enhance decision support and provide alerts when health deterioration or the need for intervention has been detected. Embodiments utilize combined pictorial representations (including physical, mental, and social health determinants) as an avatar or pictogram, comparing health status to a general or target population, and using different methods to represent and reinforce health status. The apparatus, systems, and methods further enable individuals to access their own medical records in a way that can be understood by them and therefore is more widely accessible. The invention enhances health reporting, improving utility, usability and desirability of health reporting tools.

  • Publication number: 20160228058
    Abstract: A non-resistive contact sensor assembly includes an electric field sensor device, a cover, and a biasing structure. The electric field sensor devices has a dry electrode component for receiving an electrical signal from an object of interest by capacitively coupling with the entity. The signal processing component is surrounded or embedded in the cover. The biasing structure is disposed on the outside of the cover and is adapted to press the dry electrode component against a surface of the object interest when biased by an external structure.

  • Publication number: 20160085917
    Abstract: A method of monitoring symptoms of a person includes repeating, over a period of time, the steps of: selecting, by the person, one or more symbolic representations corresponding to one or more symptoms from a predefined set of symbolic representations presented to the person; and electronically recording data regarding the one or more symbolic representations selected by the person such that the data is electronically accessible later for generating a history of the symptoms of the person over the period of time. The data is transferred over virtual networks using virtual dispersive routing and stored in dispersive storage area networks (SANs). The data is classified as trusted, corrupted, invalid or uncertain, and/or as trusted, ambiguous and inadequate.
