  • Patent number: 11317824
    Abstract: A wearable device and system has been developed to help users learn the practices of diaphragmatic breathing and breathing patterns to improve running and walking performance. The wearable has a breathing sensor (breathe in-breathe out) and a movement sensor used to identify foot strikes. A processor computes the number of foot strikes occurring while inhaling and the number of foot strikes occurring while exhaling to report breathing patterns as a function of time. The algorithms may be modified to teach breathing patterns to athletes in other sports and deep breathing for numerous movement and minimal movement applications.

  • Patent number: 10981034
    Abstract: A system includes companion device that has movement sensors and a separate wearable device that has core contraction sensors. The companion device can be coupled to moving objects such as exercise equipment. Signals from the companion device and wearable device sensors are transmitted to a processor which analyzes the object movement signals and determines when a qualifying movement is performed which benefits from core contraction. Signals from the core contraction sensors are also transmitted to the processor and are used to determine if the core is contracted during the qualifying movement. If the core is contracted during the qualifying movement, the movement is a protected qualifying movement. However, if the core is not contracted during the qualifying movement the movement is an unprotected qualifying movement. The system can inform the user when unprotected qualifying movements are performed.

  • Patent number: 10814166
    Abstract: A wearable device has a core contraction sensor. Signals from the core contraction sensor are transmitted to a processor which analyzes the core contraction signals and determines if the user's core is contracted or relaxed. The processor can cause a computing device to output a sequence of tones in response to a core contraction signal. The sequence of tones can correspond to a song which can be played by performing a plurality of core contractions with durations that correspond to a duration of the notes in the song. Alternatively, the core muscles can be contracted to correspond to music heard by the user. The processor can output a score based upon the matching of the core contractions with the musical notes.

  • Patent number: 10765908
    Abstract: A wearable device and system has been developed to provide feedback to help users be able to engage specific muscle groups on cue, effectively exercise said muscle groups, and learn to engage said muscle groups before and through movements. Algorithms for identifying relaxed-to-engaged and engaged-to-relaxed transitions may be important for providing a positive user experience. The wearable device and system may be used for training effective use of the core and other muscles. A myokinesiometer is described to display target muscle engagement and body movement data simultaneously. The myokinesiometer facilitates specifying tests for protected and unprotected movement analyses.

  • Patent number: 10405797
    Abstract: The system includes a movement sensor and a core contraction sensor in communication with a processor. The core contraction sensor is placed on the core muscles of a user and transmits core contraction signals to the processor. The processor receives movement signals from the movement sensor and identifies user movements that are qualifying movements that benefit from core contractions. The processor also monitors the timing between the qualifying movements and the core contractions to identify protected and unprotected qualifying movements. The system can also include a memory for storing core scores that are calculated from the protected and unprotected qualifying movements, exercise information and core sensor calibration information. The core contraction information can be used to calibrate the core contraction sensor. The core contraction and movement information can be transmitted to a therapist who can monitor the user's activities and provide instructional feedback.
