  • Publication number: 20190135594
    Abstract: An electric winch control module of this disclosure provides improved means for detecting changes in a current carried by an electric winch motor power lead. The module's housing includes a magnetic flux shield contained within an exposed channel of the housing and located at or toward a vertical centerline of the channel and opposite a magnetic flux sensor of the control module. The magnetic flux shield is made of a ferromagnetic material and includes a bottom wall spanning the width of the open bottom of the channel, an open top arranged opposite the top wall of the channel, and opposing sidewalls opposite a respective sidewall of the channel. The shield surrounds the side and lower portions of the lead below the sensor when in the channel, shielding the wire and sensor from outside interference while at the same time exposing an upper portion of the lead to the sensor.

  • Patent number: 9649039
    Abstract: A mobile plethysmographic device for detecting a Peripheral Artery Disease (“PAD”) event or other arrhythmia event is disclosed herein. The mobile plethysmographic device generates a pleth waveform, which is automatically screened by algorithms that measure the waveform to correlate, detect and store aberrations related to heart anomalies. A peripheral artery disease event for a patient is determined based on a quantative measure of blood flow in the extremities based on the differential in amplitude in the pleth signal between the arm and the two lower extremities. The changes in amplitude from the arm and one or both lower extremities can indicate PAD.

  • Patent number: 9629562
    Abstract: A mobile plethysmographic device for detecting a premature ventricular contraction event is disclosed herein. The mobile plethysmographic device generates a pleth waveform, which is automatically screened by algorithms that measure the waveform to correlate, detect and store aberrations related to heart anomalies. A premature ventricular contraction event for a patient is determined based on an identification of a time interval of the pleth waveform that is below the threshold minimum time interval followed immediately by a time interval that is above the threshold maximum tine interval.

  • Patent number: 9226669
    Abstract: An optical sensor for a monitoring device for monitoring the vital signs of a user is disclosed herein. The optical sensor preferably includes a photodetector and a two light emitting diodes (“LEDs”) that emit green light. The optical sensor includes a light barrier that includes multiple walls that block any non-reflected light from the LEDs from transmission to the photodetector so that the photodetector only receives light reflected from the artery of the user resulting in a more accurate detection of the heart rate of the user. A sensor signal from the optical sensor is processed with an accelerometer output signal from the accelerometer to generate a real-time vital sign for a user.
