  • Publication number: 20160242654
    Abstract: A health-monitor patch comprising at least one physiological sensor and digital processor is configured to be adhered to the skin of a subject. A health-monitor patch may further include an accelerometer and may detect cardiac waveforms, activity performed by the subject, and a body orientation of the subject. A health-monitor patch may be disposable, in some embodiments, and used for outpatient monitoring. Aspects of noise cancellation and reel-to-reel manufacturing are also described.

  • Publication number: 20150320190
    Abstract: A securing apparatus may be configured to secure a wearable item to any one of a variety of different graspable articles, in a suitable manner. The securing apparatus may include a securing portion, having multiple securing members. The stiffness of one of the securing members may differ from the stiffness of another securing member. The securing members may be cantilevers. In some embodiments, the anchored end of one of the cantilevers may be attached to the deflecting end of another cantilever. One of the cantilevers may deform plastically due to repeated usage with relatively thick garments, though, by employing at least one additional cantilever in an appropriate manner, the ability to grip thinner garments in a suitable manner remains uncompromised.

  • Publication number: 20150119728
    Abstract: Apparatuses and methods are disclosed for monitoring and evaluating exercise-related activities performed by a subject. A health monitor comprising an accelerometer, at least one physiological sensor, and digital processor is configured to be supported by a subject and identify an activity type (e.g., running, biking, swimming) from among a plurality of different activities. The health monitor is further configured to determine from motion data and/or cardiac data levels of health benefits received from the exercise. The health benefits may be based on standards established by recognizable health entities, so that the reported health benefits are less susceptible to errors associated with conventional step counting.

  • Publication number: 20150009043
    Abstract: Low-data-rate device-to-device communications may be established via at least one intermediate audio link Non-audio data may be encoded onto an audio data stream. The audio data stream may be converted to a non-audio data stream, e.g., an RF data stream, for wireless transmission to a second device. The second device may receive the wireless data stream. The second device may further decode a replica of the original non-audio data from the audio stream. Device-to-device communications employing an intermediate audio link may be used for communications between low-processing power devices, e.g., sensors and monitors, and more sophisticated processors, e.g., cell phones, computers, PDA's, tablets. Intermediate audio links may be useful for health and industrial applications. Low-power network protocols may also be used to establish a network of devices that use at least one intermediate audio link.

  • Publication number: 20140156043
    Abstract: Apparatuses and methods are disclosed for identifying with a single, small, intelligent activity monitor a particular type of activity from among a plurality of different activities. The monitor may include a multi-axis accelerometer and microcontroller configured to combine and process accelerometer data so as to generate features representative of an activity. The features may be processed to identify a particular activity (e.g., running, biking, swimming) from among a plurality of different activities that may include activities not performed by a human subject. An intelligent activity monitor may be configured to operate as a versatile sensor, or to operate in combination with a versatile sensor, to further receive and process physiological data and compute a fitness metric for a subject.

The features may be processed to identify a particular activity (e.g., running, biking, swimming) from among a plurality of different activities that may include activities not performed by a human subject. The activity monitor may be configured to further process the features to calculate various parameters characterizing the activity (e.g., duration of activity, total steps, distance traveled, intensity of activity, and calories burned). The monitor may identify a location on a subject where the monitor is worn, and provide a measure of the quality of the processed data or calculated parameters.
