  • Patent number: 8608621
    Abstract: There is provided an audio pacing device including a sensing unit, such as heart rate monitoring unit, to obtain a parameter, such as heart-beat rate (pulse), of a user in physical exercise, a memory to store a plurality of audio signals having predetermined tempo indications (e.g. beats per minute values); and a processing unit configured to (1) determine whether the intensity of the parameter of the user should be increased, decreased or maintained by using the parameter of the user from the heart rate monitor and a predetermined reference value, and (2) dynamically select and render an audio signal having (or adjusted to have) an audio-tempo that enables the user to accordingly increase, decrease or maintain exercise intensity, respectively.

  • Patent number: 8376911
    Abstract: There is provided an audio interval training device, including a sensing unit to obtain a parameter of a user in physical exercise, a memory to store a plurality of audio signals having predetermined tempos; and a processing unit configured to (1) receive a first and second target parameter value, (2) select from the plurality of audio signals a first and second audio signal having respective tempos, (3) alternatively rendering the first and second audio signals, wherein a respective audio signal is rendered to the user corresponding to the first and second target parameter value, as determined by the processing unit using the parameter from the sensing unit.

  • Patent number: 8095381
    Abstract: A telemonitoring central server 12 supports secure data exchange between a number of users, such as a patient, family and friends, medical personnel, suppliers, and the like. A user authenticator 20 authenticates and authorizes a user to the system. Access control is driven by a number of static or dynamic access profiles that are assigned to each user. These profiles dictate the data to which the user is allowed access, the computations available to the user, and the manner in which data is displayed to the user. The presentation style is based on access role, user, age, background, result of previous interactions, information content, authentication level, and the like. Third-party services such as advertisements and discounts for “get well soon” items can also be provided to the user.

  • Publication number: 20090264712
    Abstract: A measurement device (14) includes a measuring unit (42) for obtaining health related parameters of a patient (12), and a body-coupled communication unit (40) for sending at least measurement results. An identification device (20), associated with the patient, includes a body-coupled communication unit (26) for receiving and sending out the measurement results. A gateway device (72) includes a body-coupled communication unit (78) for receiving patient's measurement results. Additionally, a hierarchical relational deployment model (100) facilitates grouping wireless devices in a healthcare environment into subgroups based on relationships between the devices, and a hierarchical key pre-distribution scheme (110) permits distribution of unique keying material for security domains of respective groups of devices, prior to deploying the devices in a healthcare network.
