  • Patent number: 9724042
    Abstract: A wearable health monitoring device includes one or more sensors for sampling biometric parameters of various physiological conditions of the wearer. The device is powered by a variable energy source that has an energy level that changes during operation. A rechargeable battery loses charge as it powers the device. A solar cell or cells can be used to recharge, or maintain charge of the rechargeable battery, or at least provide a supplemental power source to relieve the burden on the rechargeable battery to power the device. In some circumstances, the available energy can become diminished, and the device adjusts the rate at which it performs biometric measurements in order to conserve energy.

  • Patent number: 8255041
    Abstract: A wireless monitoring system and, more particularly, a wireless monitoring system for detecting and transmitting physiological data. The present invention detects physiological data relating to a patient's cardiac activity and respiration rate and transmits the data to a remote base station via telemetry. The base station processes the data so that the data can be display by an ECG monitor.

  • Patent number: 7403808
    Abstract: A cardiac monitoring system that detects electrical signals from a patient's heart and wirelessly transmits the signals digitally to a remote base station via telemetry. The base station converts the digital signals back to analog electrical signals that can be read by an electrocardiograph (ECG) monitor.

  • Publication number: 20080009694
    Abstract: A method and system for wireless ECG monitoring is provided. An electrode connector, transmitter and receiver operate with existing electrodes and ECG monitors. The electrode connector includes connectors for attaching to disposable or reusable single electrodes. The transmitter transmits the signals from the electrodes to the receiver. The receiver passes the electrode signals to the ECG monitor for processing. ECG monitors used with an electrical conductor, for example wire connections to electrodes, are connected with the receiver, avoiding the purchase of a new monitor. Any legacy ECG monitor, including different ECG monitors, connects with the receiver using the ECG monitor's lead-wires. The ECG monitor operates as if directly connected to the electrodes without the problems discussed above associated with wires running from the ECG monitor to the patient.
