Guan-You LIN has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 11148101
    Abstract: A forward osmosis membrane having a high chemical resistance includes a backing layer, a selective layer, and a hydrophilic support layer sandwiched between the backing layer and the selective layer. The hydrophilic support layer includes a plurality of nanostructures, each of which includes a carbon nanotube and a hydrophilic film coated around the carbon nanotube, and has an outer layer defined by the hydrophilic films of the nanostructures to prevent the selective layer from penetrating into the hydrophilic support layer.
    Type: Grant

  • Patent number: 10413248
    Abstract: A method includes: sensing a portion of a human body to generate a series of image frames by an optical sensing element; determining a complexion region from each of the image frames; then calculating a central coordinate of the complexion region; determining a sample block by expanding a surrounding range from the central coordinate, for getting a complexion fluctuation waveform; comparing the central coordinate with a central coordinate of a later image frame, to calculate a displacement in a unit time for determining whether the portion of the human body is in a static state. In the static state, an operating unit performs noise filter and peak detecting for complexion fluctuation waveform, and calculates a physiological signal. The method can reduce the amount of data required to be processed in physiological signal detection, and improve the accuracy of the detection.

  • Publication number: 20170007185
    Abstract: A non-contact method for detecting physiological signals and motion in real time comprises: sensing a portion of a human body to generate a series of image frames by an optical sensing element; determining a complexion region from each of the image frames; then calculating a central coordinate of the complexion region; determining a sample block by expanding a surrounding range from the central coordinate, for getting a complexion fluctuation waveform; comparing said central coordinate with a central coordinate of a later image frame, to calculate a displacement in a unit time for determining whether the portion of the human body is in a static state. In the static state, an operating unit performs noise filter and peak detecting for complexion fluctuation waveform, and calculates a physiological signal. Said method can reduce the amount of data required to be processed in physiological signal detection, and improve the accuracy of the detection.
