  • Publication number: 20190117126
    Abstract: This disclosure generally relates to a system for communicating data generated by a wearable device to one or more server devices for analysis. The one or more server devices may transmit activity level data, or a graphical representation thereof, for a wearer of a wearable device to a device associated with a healthcare provider. The activity level data may include one or more of an active minutes element, a television time element, a word count element, a sleep duration element and a reading duration and score element.

  • Publication number: 20190122652
    Abstract: This disclosure generally relates to a word counting device. Specifically, this disclosure generally relates to a wearable word counter device. The word counter device includes a microphone to receive speech input. The word counter device further includes a light sensor to receive data representative of an amount of light in an environment of the word counter device. The word counter device also includes an accelerometer to receive data representative of an amount of movement of the word counter device or the wearer of the word counter device.

  • Patent number: 10134424
    Abstract: This disclosure generally relates to a portable device. Specifically, this disclosure generally relates to a portable word counter device. The portable word counter device includes a digital microcontroller circuit. The digital microcontroller circuit includes a syllable detector detecting syllables in spoken speech. The syllable detector aggregates a number of detected syllables and applies a syllable to word counted ratio. Based on the syllable to word counted ratio, the syllable detector determines a number of words spoken, and transmits the number of words spoken to a mobile device.

  • Publication number: 20150164430
    Abstract: A method for classifying motion of a user includes: during a second time interval, receiving a set of sensor signals from a set of motion sensors arranged within a wearable device; from the set of sensor signals, generating a set of quaternions corresponding to instances within the second time interval; generating a set of motion features from the set of quaternions; transforming the set of motion features into a second action performed by the user within the second time interval; and transmitting a flag for the second action to an external computing device in response to a difference between the second action and a first action, the first action determined from data received from the set of motion sensors during a first time interval immediately preceding the second time interval.

  • Publication number: 20110267196
    Abstract: A system and method for providing sleep quality feedback that includes receiving alarm input on a base device from a user; the base device communicating an alarm setting based on the alarm input to an individual sleep device; the individual sleep device collecting sleep data based on activity input of a user; the individual sleep device communicating sleep data to the base device; the base device calculating sleep quality feedback from the sleep data; communicating sleep quality feedback to a user; and the individual sleep device activating an alarm, wherein activating the alarm includes generating tactile feedback to the user according to the alarm setting.
